"We cover some of the greatest songs of all time.", says Jason Ferguson, guitarist and vocalist for the JFP. "It's really tough to pin us down to any one style and though it's hard to describe what we're actually doing, I say first and foremost, we're a rock & roll band."

Biography

"Coming together in 2006, the JFP is the melting pot for so many different styles of music. Rock, jazz, funk, soul, R&B, blues, folk, reggae...., it's all there."
"We cover some of the greatest songs of all time.", says Jason Ferguson, guitarist and vocalist for the JFP. "It's really tough to pin us down to any one style and though it's hard to describe what we're actually doing, I say first and foremost, we're a rock & roll band."
Besides covering songs by American and International artists such as Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Cliff and Van Morrison, the JFP digs back deep into the catalogues of these greats to pull out their lesser known material.
"We give the flops the royal treatment too.", says Gregory Smith, bassist and vocalist.
Jason adds, "We're like a rescue and salvage operation. When I go to a record store looking for material I go into the back, or look under the shelves, you know what I mean?"
With an equal blend of the jam sensibility of bands like The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers, and the lockstep tightness along the lines of Little Feat and The Funky Meters, the JFP brings back the obscure songs that built the foundation for today's popular music. Carefully crafting their interpretation of these songs has given the JFP a sense of freedom, and along with that freedom comes those magical musical moments where chances are taken, and where an old tune can sound brand new.....
