About El Rey’s Garage
El Rey’s Garage was actually established in Brother JD’s backyard in the gritty little beach town of Venice Beach, Southern California.
This area of the world has a very unique creative energy that is hard to describe. Some say it’s scrappy yet beautiful, spiritual, slightly dangerous, funky, and twisted. Others have said it’s where “art meets violence” or “where debris meets the sea”.
This historical backdrop has been perfect for Brother JD to express his many artistic visions in television, radio, music, and automotive “custom culture”.
You’ll find a world of unique artistic productions that involve motorsickles, smooth custom cars, trucks, pin-striping, style, and fashion. You’ll also experience the sound of this scene with his first love, an ornery bass playin’ style of music he affectionately calls “Stank.”
What started out as a few cool backyard videos for YouTube, eventually turned into a TV show for the Discovery network. From that experience, Brother JD and El Rey’s began to further pursue production excellence with their next TV show titled “Wrench Wars” which is currently airing in primetime on the MAVTV network.
Along with leading the production company, Brother JD is also known as the “Father of Stank” the creator of the “Hillbilly-Hoodrat” style and the “Pied Piper” of the BCN — The “Blue Collar Nation”
Whether it’s music, television, radio, or just a few cool rides, you can see and hear his unique blend of urban funk and hillbilly flavor in everything he creates…
