Like a VW van with 310,000 miles rolling out of the shop, The Jones Gang (formerly Houston Jones) is still trucking. A collection of misfits and malcontents who, like a hippy transformer, assemble into something much greater than the sum of its parts. An insane collection of rock, funk (Motown and Louisiana), gospel, blues, folk and country. The band covers a musical history the size of the USA, in a tight and soulful style.
