    An acoustic mayhem extravaganza! 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. The Bay Area based high-octane Americana quintet performs a 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 Flatpicking 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 (bass) 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 6th CD "Queen of Yesterday," described the band as "a confluence of sublime talent". Special guest Stevie Coyle, former front man of the Waybacks, is known for his spot-on guitar playing and quirky, insightful songs. Add it all up and you’ve got a foot-stomping, heart-thumping extravaganza of acoustic mayhem that’s worth checking out.
