About Us

Formed in 2012 in South Dakota, “Avenger Joe” is a
professional level variety band specializing in Country,
Pop and Rock Music. The band sets itself apart from
other regional acts with its dedication to quality and
professionalism. We have full production that enables us
to do large and small venues. Our 25,000 watt P/A system
and light show can accommodate street dances, fairs,
downtown concerts, outdoor events, weddings and large
indoor venues. Members include Trent Johnson, John
Pettigrew, Trent Aman, Kaila Dakota and Brian Michael.
Kaila is from Aurora, SD and is now based out of Nashville
as a singer songwriter. Brian is a singer, songwriter
& producer from California and is also based out of
Nashville. Together they form the duo “On The Run” and
perform acoustic shows all over the country. In 2017 the
duo was nominated by iHeart Radio’s “Rocky Mountain
Country Music Awards ” for Kaila’s voice as “FEMALE
SINGER OF THE YEAR”. “On The Run” has joined with
“Avenger Joe” and will be fronting the band as dual lead
singers/guitar players. These two are amazing talents!
Kaila was a 2014 “golden ticket” winner on “AMERICAN
IDOL” and made an impressive run in Hollywood. She
also won the 2015 WE-FEST singing competition beating
out 1,000’s of singers and earning a spot on the main
stage at WE-FEST with Blake Shelton. “Avenger Joe”
featuring “On The Run” will give you not ONE but TWO
professional acts giving you a double dose of AMAZING!
We pride ourselves on being professional, humble,
thankful and easy to work with. Our goal is to give the
audience the best show possible with a large dose of fun!
