Americana, Blues & Gospel
The California Bay Area based “High Octane” Americana band, The Jones Gang, is like a VW van with 310,000 miles rolling out of the shop, here they are, still truckin’, with some new tunes and grooves.
Travis Jones, the Soul Mountain, is the lead singer with a voice for the ages. Henry Salvia, the Motor City Misfit, plays more notes than exist on the piano. Josh Zucker is the strong and solid Base and bass of the band, and Peter Tucker is, of course, the best Peter-Tucker-style drummer in the world, and the only drummer officially approved by the Northern California Bluegrass Society.
Sean Allen, Master of The Telecaster and on lap syel guitar is fun to listen to and watch! He is perfect! The band can move seamlessly from a murder ballad to a New Orleans rhumba, first breaking your heart and then making you glad you’re alive.
