First CD, "Live at Satellite Ballroom", release May 2008



Catfish Jones is a group of veteran Charlottesville, VA-area musicians: singer/songwriter/guitarist Johnny Jones, Lee Felton on lead guitar and vocals, Turtle on bass and vocals and Darby Wootten on drums. John and Lee formed the nucleus of the band in January of 2005; the present lineup came together in the fall of 2008. We released our first CD, Live at Satellite Ballroom, in June of 2008. Catfish Jones music is guitar-centered, rhythmically adventurous rock n’ roll. Our music is for anyone who craves sounds that grab your ears, turn on your brain, and move your body. If you want more than empty sonic calories and corporate-approved grooves; if you appreciate modern rock that's more than audible wallpaper, you want this stuff. Blues/funk/rock is what we got, with a twist or three, served cold, or nice and hot.

We're influenced by: Allman Brothers, Talking Heads, John Hiatt, Taj Mahal, Johnny Cash, Warren Zevon, Little Feat, Frank Zappa, Albert King, King Crimson, The Who, CCR, Primus, Hendrix, Chris Whitley, Cream, XTC, Pink Floyd, SRV, Robert Johnson, Government Mule, James Brown, among others.
