Biography

Why does everybody love the Blues? I’ll tell you why. Cause no matter if you are old or young, rich or poor, no matter where you’re from, no matter who your daddy is, no matter what you eat for breakfast, no matter what your real hair color is, some where, some how, sometime you’re gonna get the Blues. That is why the Blues has been the most influential form of music in the world touching jazz, country, rock and roll, Gospel, bluegrass, old time, R&B, reggae...and on and on.

But more than any other genre the Blues is a living and breathing thing surviving through the years by changing and evolving. Mel Jones and His Bag O Bones take acoustic Blues down the road to the next fork by doing the same thing that the old country blues masters did. They listened to the music around them, paid attention to the world around them, and lived their lives. From these sources they made the Blues well up in a musical spring that became a branch that became a creek that became a river that has now become a flood. The Bones are proud to add a few drops of their own.
