    To pre-purchase tickets, please call: 925-228-6985 Houston Jones invites you into a world of musical virtuosity and storytelling ranging from the myths of ancient Greece to the red dirt back roads of Waskom Texas. The acoustic heart of the band beats with the passion of five lifetimes lived in a musical landscape of revival tents to Irish pubs, New Orleans to the Great Plains to Motown, a church in Cape Cod to a punk club in Berkeley. This explosive, wide-ranging performance will touch your heart and get your feet moving of their own volition. Houston Jones is a San Francisco based high-octane Americana band that performs an original repertoire that ranges from bluegrass and folk to blues and gospel. Glenn Houston (lead guitars) has been voted Best Guitarist by the Northern California Bluegrass Society, is a past judge of the National Flatpick Guitar Championship Competition in Winfield, Kansas, and was the founding lead guitarist of the Waybacks. Travis Jones (lead vocals, guitar), began performing as a child accompanying his mother on gospel tours in the South. He honed his soulful delivery in his years as a child preacher in churches around his native Shreveport, only to throw down his bible when he saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Henry Salvia (keyboards, accordion) has performed with the Johnny Nocturne Band, Bo Diddley, Rickie Lee Jones and Big Jay McNeeley. Peter Tucker (drums) has deep Americana roots, having performed and recorded with wide array of Americana musicians, including Tim Hardin, Richie Havens, the Beau Brummels, Warren Zevon and Skunk Baxter. Peter was also in the original rhythm section of The Waybacks. Joshua Zucker is a seasoned upright and electric bassist, comfortable in most any genre. Joshua co-founded the Zucker Family Band and has worked with the Rowan Brothers, Peter Rowan, Caren Armstrong, David Gans, Randy Clark, David Phillips, Garrin Benfield, Dore Coller, Tim Weed, Andrew Freeman and countless others. The San Francisco Chronicle, in giving Houston Jones its highest review rating for their CD "Queen of Yesterday," described the band as "a confluence of sublime talent". Billboard.com praised their “Wonderful original tunes.” Dirty Linen said “No one delivers the goods quite like Houston Jones… Houston Jones remains one of the West Coast’s most talented and entertaining bands.” Bob Brown, club owner and manager of Huey Lewis, says they are “as good as any singing and picking I’ve heard in my thirty years in the music business."
