WonderChunk – the genesis of WonderChunk began in the winter of 2011 when Jonny Vegas and Randy Moyer began to outline a new musical project. Since that time, WonderChunk has grown to a five piece rock band and continues to expand its repertoire. Where does the name WonderChunk come from? It’s the name of the band’s offical mascot, Lexi the Beagle – she is WonderChunk.
Randy Moyer – Randy has played guitar since he was a teenager. He began performing in Anaheim, California, and even played at Disneyland. Randy also has a theatrical background and has performed with the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble and in a traveling Celtic band along the East Coast. With precise rhythm guitar chops, Randy also sings with a melodic tenor voice that blends tastefully in harmony.
Ben Gebhart – Ben is the beating heart of WonderChunk. Steeped in a love for punk rock and rockabilly, Ben lays down a foundation of solid grooves that support the music of WonderChunk. Ben got his start in his late teens playing and recording with numerous local bands in and around Bloomsburg, PA.
Eddie Ramirez – ‘Crazy’ Eddie started to learn guitar at the age of 14. He performed with several prominent bands around Bloomsburg and Danville, Pa until he moved to Pittsburgh, Pa. There he studied classical guitar at Duquesne. Recently returning to Danville, Eddie brings the sizzle to WonderChunk with exceptional lead guitar and sweet tones.
Shannon Halteman – Shannon started singing bluegrass with her father’s band as soon as she could talk. She still carries that experience with her in to the world of Rock n Roll. She prefers complex harmonies and rolling leads. She is able to cover a vast array of styles with her wide vocal range and unique raspy voice. Shannon expands the variety of music WonderChunk performs to include covers of renowned female rock artists
Jonny Vegas – With great hair and winning smile, Mr. Vegas rocked the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado writing and performing in his original rock band Lords of the Basement, and also the classic rock cover band Love Handles until he relocated to Pennsylvania in 2009. Jonny throws down rich bass lines and sings with a powerful baritone voice. His musical studies include music theory and classical voice training. Experienced in live television, radio and public address speaking, Jonny is a natural front man and enjoys interacting with an audience.
