Jeremy Porter & The Tucos
Rock from Detroit MI

Jeremy Porter & The Tucos are a rock and roll band from Detroit, Michigan. They sound like guitars and whiskey, hooks and heartache, energy and passion. You'll find everything from Cheap Trick to Gram Parsons, Hüsker Dü to Uncle Tupelo, Merle Haggard to Ted Nugent on their turntables. The racket they make is a little bit of each. It's Detroit rock and roll, even if Detroit isn't quite ready for it.

Jeremy Porter grew up in Marquette, a small town in Michigan's upper peninsula, where he was a founding member of one of the UP's first punk bands - The Regulars. He moved to Detroit and tore through the 90s and 00s fronting bands like SlugBug, The OffRamps and Fidrych (as well as a solo stint) though 2 decades of recording and touring before forming The Tucos in 2009. Gabriel Doman (Hotwalls) and Patrick O'Harris (Mike Hard Band, Sons of the Gun) round out the trio.

• JP & The Tucos have released 2 full-length LPs, 2 7"s and a slew of
contributions to comps.

• They've toured the US and Canada multiple times - playing festivals,
theaters, clubs, corner bars and coffee shops from Boston to Houston,
Colorado to Montréal, Minneapolis to Jacksonville, and all points between.

• They've become one of the go-to support acts for national acts coming
through Detroit, opening for Lydia Loveless, Supersuckers, American
Aquarium, Jesse Malin, Deadstring Brothers, Two Cow Garage,
Whitey Morgan, LA Witch, Tim Barry, Old Man Markley and many
more.
In May, 2015, JP&T released Above the Sweet Tea Line - their second LP for Detroit's New Fortune Records. They'll be on the road supporting it for the next year and more.
