Chord Productions & The Diamond Mine Agency Presents
CKY: (Jess Margera, Chad I Ginsburg, Matt Deis)
American heavy metal band from West Chester, Pennsylvania. Formed in 1998 by vocalist and guitarist Deron Miller, guitarist Chad I Ginsburg and drummer Jess Margera, the group currently features Ginsburg, Margera and bassist Matt Deis, who have also performed with frontman Daniel Davies twice since Miller’s departure in 2011. Closely linked to the CKY Crew, featuring Margera’s brother Bam, the band found initial recognition through its musical contributions to the CKY video series and the TV series Jackass.
CKY has been categorised as a band of multiple musical genres, including alternative metal, post-grunge and skate punk. The band’s songwriting in the past was typically led by Miller, with production, engineering and mixing handled by Ginsburg. In recent years, internal tensions between band members halted progress on new material and touring; Ginsburg, Margera and Deis have since retained the CKY name, while Miller has reformed Foreign Objects and started a new version of the band as 96 Bitter Beings.
