Our Story

  

Johnny Wathen - Guitars and Vocals

Johnny is the lead singer and guitarist for Zero Tolerance, a 3-piece cover band performing in Southern California. Johnny has been playing and singing for over 40 years in original and cover bands around Southern California. His passion for guitar and singing began at the age of 16 when a friend turned him on to Jimi Hendrix, Are You Experienced – he rented his first guitar the next day and became consumed by it. Johnny was raised in San Diego and is the son of Costa Ricans immigrants who came here in 1955 for a better life. They gave Johnny a wide appreciation for all types of music and this belief still forms his musical approach today.

 

Ross Hagberg - Bass and Vocals

Ross hails from Fairbanks Alaska. He started playing bass in the late 70's   in a "High School Garage Band " setting that never really went anywhere. Ross' love for Rock and Roll along with a passion for the blues  brought him back to the Bass guitar early 2000's with a serious desire  to play live in a band. While average bass players may be content with  taking a backseat, Ross knows that his job in a 3 piece power trio is  heavy hauling for the band. This means settling into a groove and  working with Mark (drummer) so Johnny (Shredder) can supply the guitar  riffs and vocals to create a sound that brings the audience to their  feet. 


Mark Guey, Drums and Vocals

Mark is the drummer for the band Zero Tolerance. Mark has been playing drums since he was in high school, approximately 30 or more years. Mark grew up in a family whom are all musically inclined. His sister plays piano and sings. His brother plays guitar, saxophone, flute, and clarinet. His mother plays the clarinet in a local orchestra in Sacramento and his late father was an excellent singer.  Mark's influences have been from all genres of music, from classic rock and roll, hard rock, jazz, big band, reggae, etc...you name it he was influence by it. Mark banged on everything from pots and pans to rickety old drum sets when he was growing up. He is always tapping on anything in front of him, which drives his co-workers (and band mates) insane. He is married with 2 children and 1 grandchild.  Mark was born in Texas, but spent most of this life in Southern California, and a short time in Colorado, where he is a big time Bronco fan. Rock on!

Our origins

  

Zero Tolerance Band was formed in 2013 when Mark answered an ad that Johnny had placed looking for a drummer. They got together and started ripping right off the bat, they instantly felt comfortable with each other’s style. It took several bass players and years later to finally find a great bass player and perfect fit for the band. Ross and Johnny had jammed some years earlier and had a great time, but each were in different musical directions so they never reconnected. Fast forward 5 years Ross answered an online ad and Zero Tolerance was complete. Ross’ thundering and melodic low end, are a perfect complement to Marks powerful and driving drums, Johnny tearing off licks and belting out powerful vocals with Mark and Ross harmonizing . . . It was magic.
