BandAmericanaJam

We call it Space Country. It's jammy, americana music with a good base of classic rock and blues.

Biography

From the desolate plains of a distant galaxy, Diesel Jones wears a ten gallon space cowboy hat to the Rockabilly party. After nearly a year together, they've established a repertoire of original tunes that combine the freewheeling spirit of the jam with the traditional music of the American South and an eclectic selection of covers spanning a multitude of genres.

This diverse foursome came together in a Sunroom in Virginia Highlands through mutual friend and former bandmate Sam Aranson, in the late summer of 2006. The result was a mosaic of bass heavy southern rock, space country, blues, and Americana sounds.

Diesel Jones’ musical influences include Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Uncle Tupelo, Gram Parsons, The Band, John Coltrane, The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, Miles Davis, David Grisman, Walt Whitman, Susan Tedeschi, Sheila E, Stuart Copeland, and Tony Royster, Jr.
