we are Grounded

From the beautiful shores of Lake Huron out of Oscoda Michigan, Grounded has consistently rocked the house since 2001. With a set list straight out of modern day rock charts to classics from Heart, Pink Floyd and Bachman Turner Overdrive, they're sure to fill your venue every time.

 
Jon Brun - Lead Vocals/Guitar Born in 1980 in Petosky, MI. Spent a few years in California and then came to Alpena to raise a family. My vocal talents I used to share only with my family, but then decided to enter a couple local singing contests, the first was in the Alpena Mall and it was a Karaoke contest. Then in the Spring of 2007 I entered "Iosco Idol". I fared pretty good. I came in 3rd place out of many talented performers. "Iosco Idol" is also how I became a member of the band "Grounded". They were the featured band at the AuSable Inn, where the Idol was being held. They were looking for a singer and I was looking for a band of musicians who shared my ideas and passion for music.

Tom Erlenbaugh - Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals Born and raised in Indianapolis, IN. I learned the inner workings of a band by being a roadie for a neighborhood band. I served in the United States Air Force for 4 years and taught myself how to play the Bass guitar in 1983. After leaving the service, I played in a few different bands, from Oldies to Rock, Classic to Blues to Country. I was biding my time, waiting for the right combination of musicians, which I found with Jim Rowden on Drums and Rich Warner on Lead Guitar in 2001, "Grounded". I am a spiritual person and truly believe that it was fate that complied this band.
