Dennis Jones Band / Press

“It’s a mystery to me why Dennis Jones isn’t more acclaimed than he is. Since 2003, the L.A.-based blues rocker has released one powerhouse album after another, each loaded to the brim with stunning guitar work (he counts the Kings, Hendrix, and Page as influences…..an impressive line-up), profound songwriting, and propulsive rhythm section backing that’s second-to-none (Dale Black – bass, Raymond Johnson – drums). Through the years, he has served as an opening act for the likes of Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, John Mayall, and Dick Dale, but Both Sides of the Track, Jones’ fifth recording for Blue Rock Records, should propel him to the headliner list if there’s any justice in the world. Jones wrote all thirteen tracks and produced the disc himself. He has guitar chops to burn, but it never seems like he beats you over the head with solo after solo….in part because of the creative way he mixes blues with rock, funk, and soul. His solos are always crisp, concise, and the”

Graham Clarke - Blues Bytes

“Dennis Jones guitar work is as slick smooth as a hot knife passing through butter. This cat is soulful and, from a technical standpoint, right on the money...plus he stays true to blues tradition, all the while showing that he's got what it takes to compete against anyone out there. From a blues/rock standpoint he shows himself on an equal with even the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. From straight-ahead blues to blues rock and an incredibly soulful R&B, Jones covers all his bases and stays true to honest blues the whole time. Where so many are diving into blues/rock head first, losing sight of anything that resembles blues from the start, Jones stays true to his blues roots and the blues/rock is a tool that helps to capture a younger audience and bring it into the 21st century. A superb songwriter and great storyteller, Jones plays what he knows and lives...and enjoys every minute of it, a fact that is evident in every note.”

Bill Wilson - Reflections In Blue

“The question has been posed by a few, as to why Dennis is not as widely successful or popular as some other artists are and I believe that the answer is simpler than you might have thought for, rather than play in a manner that is broadly in the same vein as most others or try to carve out a particular niche for himself Dennis has stopped to take stock of all that which has gone before him and all that which is around him and decided to embrace all and in turn meld together the influences that have meaning and inspiration for him. He then simply decided to play in the manner that pleases and satisfies his musical soul, irrespective of fame and fortune. Dennis certainly stands out in a crowd and it ain’t a bad thing either Recommended”

Brian Harman - Blues In The South (UK) Review

“This is one powerful album and Dennis Jones has certainly honed his trade well with the sheer power and passion as not only a singer and guitarist but also a songwriter. His writing is incredibly aware of what is happening around him and he is not afraid to point the finger exactly where it needs to be. Jones possesses a lustrous baritone voice that can be as raucous as he can be to as gentle as he needs to be, wonderfully his writing promotes that ability. As a guitarist he is a stellar player who has obviously played many a gig and studied his heroes and rather than merely parroting them he has melded it all together into his very own style. Love his band, certainly a tight outfit that know where they are going and how they are going to bring out the best in not only Jones but themselves. I highly recommend this album for anybody that loves and appreciates guitar Blues done magnificently and if you are unsure you will love it also.”
