Events by EventfulJony James
The Jony James Band is a modern day blues band raised on “old school.” Hard hitting and aimed for your heart, they give you all they’ve got every show.
Jony has been playing gigs since the 1960’s, and has toured for the last thirty years. For the past eleven he has been fronting his own band playing guitar, vocals and writing songs.
Distinctive, exciting & intelligent are the words that come to mind when asked to describe the songs, singing and guitar playing of Jony (pronounced John-nie) James. Born in Buffalo, NY and raised in Chicago (where he played with Chicago Blues legends Eddie Taylor and J.B. Hutto), Jony learned blues guitar listening to Albert King, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy & B.B. King. While these are his influences Jony’s Blues are his own.
