Billy Jones Bluez
 
Billy Jones may be one of the most famous 'unknown' musicians in this country today. Having been a child prodigy and under-study to such blues greats as Little Johnny Taylor, Larry 'Totsie' Davis, Calvin Levy, Rufus Thomas, Cal Valentine,Richard 'Dimples' Fields and many others ...

Jones quickly became an accomplished guitarist and vocalist in his own right. A natural and gifted performer, Billy Jones has been touring and performing professionally since his early teens and has backed-up or performed on shows with The Dazz Band, Al Hudson and One Way, Vernon Garrett, Willie Clayton, Chockolate Milk, Chaka Chan, The Bar-Kays, Denice LaSalle and many others...

Jones has now formed his own band of unique and talented musicians to play a music style that puts a contemporary spin on the traditional sounds of his old skool teachers.

The Billy Jones Show and Revue represents a new generation of underground Bluez Artists. These are real Bluez people that play music for today's music fans... it ain't your grampa's music, ...or that same ol' predictable blues stuff that you may find at big corporate record companies. ...But then, what do these 'corporation fat cat' guys know about what's happening on the street ? Billy Jones has put together an outstanding group of musicians who produce a sound that presents the Bluez from a more urbanized and street-wise point of view.

Billy's first CD "Prime Suspect for the Blues" is a favorite of music critics and DJ's all over the United States, and has been featured in BRE magazine, BLUES REVUE magazine, WHAT'S UP magazine and many others.
