Baltimore, Maryland, USA. While still a young teenager, Jones played guitar in various blues bands in his home state. A little while later he spent some time living in Europe, developing his skills and building an admiring audience. In the mid-80s he relocated to Los Angeles, California, where he greatly expanded his audience, offering a potent mix of classic urban blues songs alongside his own compositions, which maintain the mood although dressed in powerful rock-influenced concepts. He played with guitarist Zac Harmon’s band and others before forming his own group in the mid-90s. This blending of musical genres is reflected in the name of his company, Blue Rock Records, for which he began recording in the early 00s. Included in his band for his second album, 2005’s Passion For The Blues, were Kenny ‘Boudro’ Gray (bass) and Michael Turner (drums), while among the guests were Jimmy ‘Z’ Zavala (blues harp/saxophone), Marshall Thompson (keyboards) and Harmon.

8:30 pm : The Blue Mules
8:30pm, no cover.
Trent Schmiedge, singer and guitarist for the Blue Mules always envisioned having his own blues band. There were many forks in the road of the journey; however, with the perseverance of the band’s namesake, things came together just as they should. The Blue Mules are three guys who love to play music! If a genre had to be chosen it would be the “The Blues”, however, the band is so much more with foot stomping energy, a groove and searing guitar tone that cannot be denied. The band recorded their debut CD, “The Blues Ain’t that Bad”, at Fame Machine Studio. Earl Pereira, of the Steadies and former Wide Mouth Mason member, produced, mastered, mixed and tweaked growls, thumps and sweet tones for the Blue Mules. The album was released late summer of 2013 on Dynasty Records, with distribution through HMV and FYE stores across North America and digital distribution through CD Baby.
