The Jones Gang (formerly Houston Jones)
April 9, 2016
High Octane Americana
This band is a reincarnation of the the group formerly known as Houston Jones. Still performing high octane Americana flair, with some new faces on lead and pedal steel guitar, they perform popular Houston Jones hits, as well as originals.
Travis Jones, acoustic and electric guitar, lead and background vocals and percussion — This strong, vibrant talent has performed with a wide array of artists. He’s shared the stage with Asleep at the Wheel and Waylon Jennings – Night Ranger and the Doobie Brothers – John Hartford and Levon Helm, just to name a few.
Henry Salvia, keyboards, lead and background vocals & percussion — Hailing from Detroit this Houston Jones band member since 2005 brought a lifetime of experience to the band. He worked with the Johnny Nocturne band, and such artists as Bo Diddley, Rickie Lee Jones, Johnny Colla (of Huey Lewis and the News), and Al Kooper.
Peter Tucker, Drums, Percussion, Background Vocals — Rolling Stone Magazine described Peter as “one of the most creative percussionists to emerge in rock music.” Peter recorded with Tim Hardin and worked with Richie Havens, Austin Delone, The Beau Brummels, The Waybacks, The Cowlicks, and of course, Houston Jones.
Joshua Zucker, upright & electric bass, background vocals, percussion — Joshua studied classical composition, jazz performance and ethnomusicology at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY before moving west in 1994. A seasoned upright and electric bassist/vocalist comfortable with most any musical genre, Joshua plays with The Jones Gang and many other groups.
