About the artist:
Desmond Jones is a five-piece American rock band from Michigan. With original music written to complement the group’s sound as a whole, the music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, funky bass lines, groovy drumbeats, and a big ole’ pile of saxophone. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Charles Mingus, Phish, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high-energy shows with a high level of musicianship and skillful improvisation. Each show, set list, and song is different from night to night. The group has played 800 shows all over the country and has shared the stage with bands like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Papadosio, Ripe, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, EOTO, Here Come the Mummies, Aqueous, Mungion, Dopapod, Nth Power, Kick the Cat, Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers, and many more. Desmond Jones has released two EPs and four full length studio albums available on all major platforms. The band is touring in 2022 and hitting every diner along the way.
Jordan Hamilton a cellist and vocalist is a mix of mastery and maverick musicality; hip-hop influenced, rhythmically layered, melodically robust. Avant garde, folk-soul music, a key to navigate space, time, and change, gracefully, for those who use it. Driven by diversity, drawn to the cello’s tone, cosmic strings calling souls home. “Plucking, sawing, pounding and caressing the cello to extract sometimes other-worldly sounds; melding live looping with classical music interludes, hip hop, and jazz.” (John Sinkevics, Local Spins). Shared truth, delivered and triggered by melodies, experienced as one, emanating from a deep, russet realm. Genres groomed together to represent and inquire the soul. A different kind of symphony, hopeful enough to grow our empathy, “part political activism, part hopefulness, part performance art, part soundscapes, and all entirely mesmerizing.” (John Sinkevics, Local Spins) Emotional energy crafted from integrity, immaterial and immortal, experienced at the speed of sound, with a bit of bounce, groove by the ounce, and all the jump you’ll need to move.
