Biography

A "jam band" at heart, the Joneses are not content simply playing the music. They want to feel the music so that you can feel the music too. Each night is a new experience with this versatile and unpredictable group. You never know what you may get and neither do they! But, one thing is for sure; you will enjoy it as much as they enjoy bringing it to you.

The Joneses are proud to be on their 5th year as the house band of "Coyote Joe's" in Knoxville, Tennessee, where they serve as the host of "Bike Nite & Blues Jam". Each Thursday, some of Knoxville's best musicians, as well as some up and comers, join the Joneses to celebrate the blues in all of it's forms.

The Joneses brand of high energy, blues influenced music has earned them the "Best Blues Band 2006" award by Knoxville Metropulse readers as well as an invitation to compete in the 2007 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. At the IBC, the Joneses were a favorite of musicians, club staff, and the general public. During one set, the Joneses original gospel song, "Feelin' Better" brought the club staff out of the kitchen and took them straight to church, hands raised and clappin'. With this, the band considered their visit to Memphis a success!

Jenna & the Joneses has had the pleasure of performing alongside Stacy Mitchart (12/05), The Spencer Davis Group at the Knoxville Coliseum (6/05), and Big Bill Morganfield (12/04). As well as various local blues festivals.

They are especially proud of their commitment to perform at benefit concerts for everything from public radio, to hurricane relief, to breast cancer awareness.
