Jorge Briones – Vocals


Jorge originally started out his music career as a drummer, playing drums since he was 8 years old.  Forming his first band in high school and continuing to perform as a drummer for a number of years he decided that it was time to step out front and try his hand at singing.  Since those early days Jorge has performed with several bands including, Silent Chaos, Bedrock and Mach V.  He has toured and has been signed to recording contracts but in his words “never got rich or famous”.  Some of the places he has performed at include the Long Beach Grand Prix, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, San Jose’s Municipal Stadium and numerous clubs and festivals throughout the United States.

After taking a break from music in the 2000’s Jorge was drawn back in for a 20 year reunion with Silent Chaos in 2009 where he teamed up with Dave Kester on bass.  After another couple of years away from the stage to focus on business Jorge was lured back by the prospect of forming a tribute band that would become Steel Horse.  Recruiting and convincing Dave to be his Richie Sambora was the first step and from there the band formed fairly quickly.

Being out front as the “ring leader” as he likes to call it is where Jorge is most at ease.  His goal for every show is to make sure that everyone that sees the band gets a great show.  He’s known to say during shows that if you don’t like Bon Jovi he guarantee’s that you will be singing before the set is done.  He’s usually right on that one!
