Full Bio:

The Yardarm got its start in 2017 when, in the only documented incident of this going well for anyone, JJ Westfield and Jason Bales were prompted to play together by their wives.  After finding their tastes and skills in music meshed, Jason promptly ignored any conventional wisdom about not $#!{{ing where he eats and enlisted two of his co-workers, John Cowan and Palmer Smith, to play drums and bass.  Since then, the Yardarm has played their twangy rock and roll across the Triangle and as far out as Brevard, NC on stages of all sizes, be they small, intimate, cozy, or cramped.
