THE BAD JONES
full band electric or acoustic
originals / covers
The Bad Jones are a driving & energetic rock band from the Bay Area known formerly as Soul Pie. Upon changing their name, the band has re-emerged with a new attitude & sound in efforts to focus their strengths as songwriters...and more importantly to shed a fresh & reverent light on what they see as the currently dormant state of Rock & Roll.
Led by vocalist Jesse Ray Smith & guitarist Tommy Odetto, this longtime songwriting duo have combined forces with renown hometown virtuosos John Robin Varn on keys & Tim Baker on bass. New addition TJ Cox brings percussion prowess to this already powerful quintet's dynamic approach to revitalizing the sound and energy of the 60's & 70's with renewed flair. Together they aim to help set the stage for the coming resurgence of Rock on the West Coast.
This group of heavy-hitting rock wunderkind bring a stylistic maturity to the stage, featuring performances of self-penned compilations & classic covers alike.
