Javier Mendoza & Jim Peters with The Reserve
The folk-rock collective The Reserve was formed in 2013 by longtime collaborators J. Mendoza and Jim Peters. The Reserve combines elements of laid-back storytelling with moments of white-knuckle guitar acrobatics, filtering all of this through a pop sensibility with just a touch of twang. Mendoza and Peters have played music together since 2001, touring both the United States and Europe. They have opened for such artists as Willie Nelson, Los Lobos, Ben Folds, and Chuck Berry. Vocalist/guitarist J. Mendoza has released several acclaimed records as a solo artist. Guitarist/vocalist Peters was a member of the alt-rock group The Upright Animals when not appearing with Mendoza.
