In early 2014, brothers Jim and Louie Groh, along with cousin Joe Groh, teamed up with recent Cincinnati transplant and veteran of the Houston heavy metal scene, Ryan Zentay, and The Z.G.s were born. With their unique brand of fast paced, high energy punk rock with catchy hooks and melodies, coupled with insightful lyrics ranging from drug addiction, politics, to personal struggles, The Z.G.s are an act that always draws a crowd.

2015 has proven to be a busy year for the band. The Z.G.s have maintained a steady schedule of shows at the best local and regional venues, and are racking up a list of great bands that they have shared the stage with, including Anti-Flag, Masked Intruder, War on Women, The Midnight Ghost Train, The Scandals, Tiny Moving Parts, OC45, The Copyrights, Cayetana and many more. The Z.G.s were nominated as best punk band for the 2015 Citybeat Cincinnati Entertainment Awards.

From 1998 to 2004, The Scrubs were one of Cincinnati's premier punk bands and live acts. This trio played a unique mix of pop, punk, and rock, and were well known around the Midwest for their DIY ethic, entertaining live shows, and occasional (or not-so-occasional) 80s covers. They shared the stage with such bands as Alkaline Trio, Against Me!, Midtown, Ultimate Fakebook, Piebald and more. Albums
were released on guitarist Jamie Mandel's own label Nice Guy Records.

The Scrubs have 2 albums available. The "Return To The Basement" EP was released in 2004, and "The Scrubs Complete Discography 1999-2003" was released in 2007. Both are available on iTunes.

Music by The Scrubs has appeared in movie trailers for The Rocker, Jackass 3D, Charlie Bartlett, Little Manhattan, and Bachelor Party 2.

"The Scrubs pack a single song with more pop hooks than most bands can fit on an entire album. Pick slides, machine-gun drums, yowling vocals, and a hyperactive ear for melody keep these mad lads bouncing around your cranium all night long. Revel in the ecstatic sound of their angst." (

Loudmouth loves Cincinnati, strong drinks, good music, and a big party. "Music is more fun than growing up." They've had the good fortune of sharing a stage with national acts including Nofx, Aqua Bats, Mustard Plug and many more they are also the former owner/operators of the Cincy Basement Loudhouse. "Loudmouth has made an immediate impact locally, generating a buzz at home and on a handful of regional dates, inspiring comparisons to the early Fat Wreck Chords scene. They love what they do and whom they do it for." (CityBeat)
