No Way Jose!
"An insturmental electronic band who bring Columbia South Carolina to the dance floor. Thought to have started sometime during the summer of 2003, Columbia SC musician Jordan Blackmon (guitar), Aaron Graves (drums), Chris Gardner (bass guitar), Thomas Gilbert (Roland AX-7 keytar) formed this band deciding not to have any vocals. Perhaps one of the first of it's kind in that area. With happy and semi poppy keytar synth, rock and dance drum beats, and clever and catchy sounding strings No Way Jose has created their own sound."

The first record Fork & Spoon officially release as a label was by No Way Jose!- a band Aaron, Chris, and Jordan formed with their good friend Thomas Gilbert. The release was a commemorative effort as the group had become inactive by the launch of Fork & Spoon as a record label. As part of our continued celebration for entering our 5th year of existence, we are ooooh so excited to announce that No Way Jose! will be reuniting for a show at the New Brookland Tavern in West Columbia, SC on Friday June 12th, 2015.
More details in the coming weeks about what other magical things that night will hold... In the meantime, feel free to familiarize yourselves with the NWJ! catalogue as we are hoping to hear as many people singing along as possible!
