Biography

I first played and sang on live radio when I was 13 years old.I began playing in niteclubs, dances and fairs that same year. Born and raised in the Delta next to the Mississippi River I was exposed to Delta Blues, Country, Ziedaco, Dixieland, Southern Gospel, Black Gospel, Souther Rock and Rock n Roll.
I loved and was influenced by all of it. I played classic rock and country-blues cover tunes for over 20 years with my band Driftwood. At the same time I was working as a jingle writer for radio/tv commercials and actually appeared in tv commercials as a pitchman.As a frontman I became an Entertainer as well as a player, going on to do stand up comedy using music/song in my show.I still do about 150 stand up comedy gigs a year. The
players I bring with me are at the top of thir game and are doing what they love giving my audience great music along with a well choreagraphed show.

Lyrics

Better To Be Lucky

Written By: JJones/DJones

Waitin on judge worry on my mind
Knew the judge would make me pay probably give me time
I couldnt afford a lawyer I didnt have a buck
I knew my best chance
was dance with lady luck
The judge he didnt fine me not a penny I had to pay
Better to be lucky than good anyday

My son came home from school one day worried as could be
Said he had a big test and needed help from me
I said son let me give you advise thas the best
Just tell them what you know and then just make a guess
You see it doesnt really matter if you never make the grade
Its Better To Be Lucky Than Good Anyday
Chorus:
Its Better To Be Lucky Than Good Anyday
When times are tuff and things are ruff luck still gone pay
That why I`m always smiling its in the hands of fate
Better To Be Lucky Than Good Anyday
A woman I had never met called me on the phone
Said she needed to see me she was all alone
She lived in a big castle had 6 Mercedes Benz
Said if I would marry her she`d give me all her ends
She asked me how it was things turned out this way
Better To Be Lucky Than Good Anyday
Repeat Chorus
