The Joe Tones play a jump-swing style of blues. The band features male and female vocalists and experienced instrumentalists that can ignite a room with inspired playing. The JTs also have a formidable rhythm section that lays down groove after groove, moving fluidly from swing to shuffle to latin beat.
The Joe Tones are lead by Joe (Jody) Vanesky on (harmonica and vox) and his wife, Denise Crouse (rhythm guitar and vox). They are joined by session guitarist Gary Shaw with Tony Theisen (bass) and Russell Allen (drums). The band often includes guest players, including David Will (drums, percussion, trumpet), Jason Hauboldt (guitar) and Curly Hendrickson (keys).
