The Jynx is a new progressive rock band hailing from Red Hook, Brooklyn, NYC. Founded by the two original members of the band According to Wendy, Steve Holder (bass, backing vocals) and Chris DaSilva (vocals, guitar), The Jynx also includes Kevin "The Kochman" Koch (drums, percussion) and Joel Elmore (blues harp, backing vocals).

Adopting the principals of their former band, Chris and Steve set out to continue writing catchy melodic songs, and within just a couple of months had an extended repertoire and brought Kevin to tie it all together.

The music styles of The Jynx vary widely, from modern rock to rootsy reggae, soulful blues to alt-country. The common thread throughout all these songs and styles is a memorable melody and catchy hook.

About According to Wendy

In the summer of 2005, According to Wendy set out to spread the sound of "dirty reggae" throughout New York City. The songs ranged from rootsy reggae and ska to driving rock with pounding rhythms, but one thing was common throughout each song, and that was a catchy hook and melody.

The music took on many forms over the next year, finally being molded into the current sound, a mix of rock, reggae, ska, funk, blues, country and soul. Currently playing clubs in NYC and the surrounding area, the band is also in the midst of recording updated versions of the songs.
