Comprised of 6 childhood friends in their 20's, The Jons exemplify the meaning of what it means to be a dynamic group.
The Jons quickly forged ahead in their music careers by starting work on their first album with Jim Waters (Sonic Youth, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) at Waterworks West Recording. The resulting album Wine at the Hilltop (2002) showed amazing skills and rocksensibility, producing album sales of over 5,000 in Tucson alone, and their sophmore album The Jons Greatest Hits Vol 2(2006) is well on its way of trumping Hilltop's sucess.
Well now that you have read the attention-getter, here is what we are really about. Since there are six of us in the group and we all listen to a different variety of music, Ill try to limit the list of influences: The Beatles, The Who, Motown and Oldies, Chicago, Mano Negra/Manu Chao, Fabulosos Cadillacs, Zeppelin, U2, The Strokes, The Shins, many jazz musicians and much more.
We are a very versatile band as each one of us can play more than one instrument and can also sing in Spanish(we all grew up in a border town in Southern AZ). When we arent playing our original sets, we pack bars playing hours of different styles of music, mixing in rock, latin dance/rock, pop, jazz, and lots of other styles of music.
