John Caignet (Mr. Jolt) is the man behind Jolt Radio. An independent online radio station in Miami's Allapattah. For the last 6 years, he has supported us in countless ways. From constantly streaming our sets on the air, to interviewing us every time we have something exciting to share. John is and has always been an incredible influence on the local scene. Jolt Radio streams to a big community seeking emerging artists and Miami is the focal point. Always supporting our city's independent artists and musicians by giving them an outlet to express themselves and help them get discovered.
We grew as Jolt Radio grew. In the beginning stages, John would bring his radio antenna everywhere. He would set up by the stage with computer monitors and cables and one or two mics. He would live stream our sets no matter if it was at a boatyard or at Gramps. One of the funnest interviews was after live streaming our set at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale. No one in that interview was remotely sober which made it the most memorable. There was a lot of laughter and hugging. We remember doing interviews and live performances at the old location in Wynwood before relocating and expanding the studio. While on tour for our new record, John made a weekly segment were we would share stories of the road with the listeners. We looked forward to tell him our stories and share a laugh. If we need a DJ to spin between our sets, we love having John throw out some classics that would get you pumped for the next band.
On a personal level, John is always an inspiring and positive person to talk to. Regardless of time and place you can’t get anything less than laughs and a good time with this dude. He has this energy you trust. He is the real deal and everyone’s rocker dad.
Thank you so much, John!!
