â€œA confluence of sublime talentâ€ â€“ San Francisco Chronicle.
HOUSTON JONES is California based high octane Americana quintet. The band performs a mostly original repertoire that ranges from bluegrass and folk to blues and gospel.
Houston Jones invites you into a world of musical virtuosity and storytelling that ranges from the myths of ancient Greece to the red dirt back roads of Waskom Texas. The acoustic heart of the band beats with the passion of five lifetimes lived in a musical landscape of gospel revival tents to Irish pubs, New Orleans to the Great Plains to Motown, a church in Cape Cod to a punk club in Berkeley.
All this translates into an explosive, wide-ranging performance that will touch your heart, expand your mind, and get your feet moving of their own volition.
Special guests Stevie Coyle, former front man of the Waybacks, is known for his spot-on guitar playing and quirky, insightful songs. Guitarist Joe Pomianek (son of Glenn Houston), glides through those burning tempos like a hot knife through butter.
