Aversion Therapy is a Reno group that gigs about once a month. We've played most of the small venues in town: Abby's Hwy 40, The Alley, Bodega, BLCC, Cargo, 3rd St Bar, Knucklehead's, Davidson's Distillery, Centric, Jub Jub’s, Studio on 4th, Treehouse Lounge. We’ve also performed at special events/venues such as Mt. Rose Ski Area, Taste of Downtown Carson City, Street Vibrations, and the RGJ Journal Jog, at corporate parties, community block parties, as well as doing benefit shows for autism, cancer, and a local elementary school.


We’re proud to say that we have been invited back to every place we've ever played.

We do a wide range of originals, original arrangements of covers and covers from a variety of genres. Our goal is to be fun, upbeat and entertaining, with an intent to inject some comedy into our show by the songs we choose (we'll cover tunes by Tenacious D, Flight of the Conchords, Bloodhound Gang, and the Saddle Tramps, for example).

A good example of the kind of thing we do is for the Superhero Crawl, in which we’ll mixed into our four-hour set songs about Aquaman, Hulk, Superman, Thor, Batman, and the X-men. For December shows, we'd trot out themed material such as "You're a Mean one Mr. Grinch", "Linus and Lucy", "Heatmiser”, Rock versions of "We wish you a merry Xmas", "Carol of the Bells", "The Christmas Flip-Flop" and "Rock You Hard this Christmas"

We write original songs based on listener suggestions, such as "You won't take my calls, so I put a spycam on your dog", or "I'm so punk rock, even my kid has a mohawk", and our current favorite “I can’t contain the sexy (with just one wetsuit)”. We even sometimes write songs for a particular performance, such as our tune written for the Journal Jog “Eye of the Jogger”.

In addition to our own two albums of original material, we have a covers catalog of over two hundred songs, which allows us to tailor our performances for a wide variety of audiences, from the hard-partying late night bar crowd, to family-friendly events with lots of children present (we can keep it clean)! We'll cover anything from Sabbath to Cage the Elephant to Johnny Cash to Kings of Leon. We'll mashup tunes from GnR with Lady Gaga, Sublime with the Beatles, or Iron Maiden with Rick Springfield.
