BandRockBlues

We are a rock band with a variety of influences, be it blues, funk, jazz, country western. We sing about life's trials, tribulations, ironies and give them all a face that is, Mr. Deagun Jones. Our music is inspired by chopper riding, gun slinging, Milwaukee, gambling, the worst and best of times.

Biography

Our band is the result of a long time friendship between Bonez, Adam, and Dave. We all grew up in Milwaukee, just on different sides of the tracks is all. Over the years we started acquiring a taste for music and started playing a myriad of things to broaden our horizons. After being in and out of several bands, not feeling the magic we sought, We lost our seemingly irreplaceable bassist, Dave went off to college and Bonez and Adam were left with little hope. In that very moment, they strived forward deciding to play together doing only the most universal music there is, the blues. So with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica, we played open mic jams, etc, and started getting immersed in the truly wonderful crowd of people the blues surrounded us with. Eventually leading us to our new found haven, The Stepping Stone, an open mic jam the likes of which we hoped for all along. The people in and out of there were truly diverse and open minded as well as the staff and regulars. One night the bartender suggested we start a band again, we explained our dilemma and he suggested a very long time friend of his, Matt Danbeck, to play bass for us and that he would be a perfect addition. Skeptical we agreed to meet with him. In just moments he impressed and it was official... we needed to get a band together. We informed Dave in college of what was going on during his absence, and a very excited Dave hurried home. Ever since it's been a complete joy to work together and our music finally had that magic we wanted. With the support of our friends, family, and fans, we quickly understood we could'nt let this faulter. So broke, working long hours to scratch nickles together, seemed a little less painful for our cause. And in those long hours of having little to show for it, we understood we were not alone, and in that even the lower class people around us gave us the little that they had because we had just as little. Its in that we found our common theme and ground. We play music because we love it, and it loves us back....after all...money's fake.
Our influences include a wide variety of genre's such as...Stevie Ray Vaughn, Incubus, Led Zepplin, Joe Bonammasa, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Audioslave, Joe Satriani, Pantera, B.B. King, Mike Ness, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, etc. But our music is influnced by more than just other artists but fueled by ideas, our lifestyles, and our heroes. But most of all...we try to capture the magic in an otherwise mudane situation and breathe life into it.
