The CJB is an energetic, addicting, and always fun Reggae Rock outfit from the greater Salt Lake City area of Utah. Their success so far has been attributed to their hard work and dedication to providing quality music to a young exciting crowd!
The following depicts some of the Grass Roots Accomplishments made by the band.
A solo album by Codi Jordan entitled “Vacation” was completed in Nov. 2008, and received rave reviews from fans and industry professionals alike.

The band includes CODI JORDAN on guitar and vocals, MIKE LEE on lead guitar, JONY KNODER on drums, CAMERON GOLDSBERRY on bass and DK on keys.
Utah radio stations, including 97.5 The Blaze, and X96 Alternative have rotated Codi on there local music programs. The single “Travelin Man” is on full rotation on KBER 101.1, the 1 rock station in the market. The CJB has played special events for several stations, and was the opening band for The Dirty Heads and Pepper at last years Root Rock Reggae Festival in Park City.
