TRAVIS JONES; Lead Vocals, Background Vocals, Acoustic and Electric guitars

Travis’ musical background and history reads like a William Faulkner novel. He began singing gospel music at age four with his mother Lottie Mae Adams, a blues singer who recorded several discs on Paula Records. Travis became known not only for his vocal abilities but also for his telling of old testament bible stories at revivals and tent meetings all across the south. He started his first group at sixteen – a Paul Revere and the Raiders tribute band. Travis served 6 years in the US Army; he was stationed in Europe where he performed with the soul and funk band Smoke, which eventually became the back up band for the famous R&B group The Manhattans (“Let’s Just Kiss and Say Goodbye”) during their 1978 European tour. Upon leaving the armed forces, Europe, and Smoke, Travis made his way to Sonora California. There, he started several groups -among them, Yukon, Too Close for Comfort, The Sonora All Star Rock Rhythm and Blues Revue and Travis Jones and the New Frontier. He has also spent considerable time in live theater productions - most notably, Lost Highway- the Legend and Music of Hank Williams, where he played the part of Hank Williams and was Musical Director. Jesus Christ Superstar, Vocal Director and played the part of Jesus. Pump Boys and Dinettes, 3 Penny Opera, The Miss Firecracker Contest, Smoke on the Mountain, and The Grapes of Wrath where he composed an original musical score.

During his time in California, he has performed with a wide array of artists. He’s shared the stage with Asleep at the Wheel and Waylon Jennings – Night Ranger and the Doobie Brothers - John Hartford and Levon Helm, just to name a few. Travis has been the opening act (with Houston Jones) for Rodney Crowell, Michael Martin Murphy, Maria Muldaur, The Infamous Stringdusters and The Green Cards. He has recorded with various artists, as well as releasing two self titled albums – “Lost Highway, The Legendary Music of Hank Williams” and “Dance All Night” – along with seven CD releases with Houston Jones.


SEAN ALLEN:
Lead Guitar, Steel Guitar, Vocals

A consummate instrumentalist, Sean's playing is spectacular and dazzling! A graduate of the Berklee School of Music, his skills are much in demand by artists ranging from Commander Cody to Carlene Carter among others. The Jones Gang is excited to have Sean perform with us when he's available. For a taste of his playing, check out his youtube video with Commander Cody featuring Bill Kirchen and Bobby Black!

beloved singer/songwriters, Lauren Murphy. Murphy recently relocated to
Lower Alabama, after releasing her latest record, "El Dorado", dedicated
in loving memory to her late husband , Judge Murphy (ZERO/Lansdale
Station). Joined by El Dorado County's fabulous fiddler, Lisa Bond,

and in Europe.

The Pairing of Lisa (Double Bow 7) & Lauren, makes for one high energy
experience you do not want to miss.

"Lady Willpower" ~ Relix Magazine

"El Dorado" hits in places that everyone who ever draws breath is likely
to feel: maybe as a sudden flush of the cheeks, as a tightening of the
muscles that control laughter or tears, or maybe in the pit of the
stomach. Emotional honesty, the real deal " ~ No Depression

"Excellent" ~ WWOZ New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Radio

Scott Law & Ross James first met on the bandstand at Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael. From the first note they played together, there was an obvious connection. They both share a love for the classic sounds of Bluegrass and early Rock ’n Roll along with an open mind and ear for psychedelic sonic exploration. On any given night you will hear the influences of Bill Monroe, Chuck Berry, The Grateful Dead, or the Velvet Underground running through the Cosmic Twang

Dave Hebert (AKA A’Bear), guitarist and singer, is originally a native of Manitou Springs, Colorado.

Right out of college, he toured nationally with mentor and close family friend reggae recording artist John Bayley. Dave is a founding member of Brother Kind, who opened for Merl Saunders and David Grisman at Red Rocks (7/7/97).The group still reunites every so often in Colorado. Currently a resident of Denver, Colorado, Dave relentlessly works on his many different musical projects. When not touring with Melvin Seals and JGB, he performs with many original bands of his own creation such as Working Man’s Grass, a bluegrass Dead band; he also plays solo acoustic gigs throughout the Southwest; and finally, Dave plays lead guitar and vocals for Xtra Ticket, Arizona’s premier Grateful Dead band. Versatility is his trademark. Whether it's his own songs or songs from the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band catalog, Dave not only captures the feel of songs, he often takes the musical risk of breathing new life into an old familiar tune and puts the A’Bear signature on it. That's the adventure and this is his journey. Check out www.daveabear.com for more info!

Maurice Tani is a "rye-to-romantic, supercalifornigraphic" singer-songwriter specializing in a cinema-for-the-blind style. His band, Maurice Tani & 77 El Deora has been the source of untold, but exquisite suffering in the Bay Area for over 10 years.


Born and raised in San Francisco, Tani was just a bit too young for the Summer of Love, but was still profoundly influenced by the California culture that gave the world surf guitar, the Bakersfield sound, psychedelic rock and songwriters like Randy Newman, Merle Haggard and Brian Wilson

Barely into his twenties and hungry for experience, he moved to central Texas to work the hardcore country, blues and rock circuit between Austin and Dallas, playing five sets a night, seven nights a week for months at a time, eventually making connections that led to his moving on to New York City just as the punk rock scene of CBGBs and Max's Kansas City was exploding in Lower Manhattan. By 1977 he was back in San Francisco and began a stretch of five years and four critically acclaimed albums with ex-Flamin' Groovies front man Roy Loney's band, The Phantom Movers.

Through the '80s and '90s, Maurice was the lead guitarist and a featured vocalist for Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra and Big Bang Beat, both large, (12-18 piece) dance bands that gained worldwide exposure from a 2 hour PBS New Years Eve tri-mulcast(2 television stations with different views and FM stereo radio audio all broadcasting simultaneously) that was ran annually for many years on public TV in the US and Europe. ZPMO won the Bammy Award for Best Independent Album of 1985. After 15+ years of touring, Tani was ready for a change and made the decision to return to his roots in original music.

Since making the shift back to songwriting in 1999, Maurice has spent the past 15 years as an active part of the California alt-country/Americana scene. Fronting his own bands, Calamity & Main, then 77 El Deora, he has produced a series of albums for himself and others and constructed a repertoire of “rye” humor and romantic rumination. Tani now has 7 albums to his credit. The two latest are the studio produced “Blue Line”, and an album of acoustic duos and trios with bassist Mike Anderson, “Two Stroke”

“This is thoughtful, heart-wrenching stuff about human asteroids that wonder where and how they lost their way and if there is a GPS that works. …darkly funny comments on power, desire, adrenalin, ambivalence, and narco squad surveillance.” -Jeep Rosenberg, Freight Train Boogie

“Tani's songs sound like buried treasures. ...He has a quality to his singing that is closer to a Raul Malo or a Roy Orbison, almost a classic cabaret voice, that brings a haunting feeling to many of his songs. His vocals on “Radio City” build on a form that Tani describes “as cinema for the blind”. You can imagine driving along a desolate road when this song comes on the radio “ a lost-love song where the protagonist is an all night disc jockey who laments that he has squandered his chance at love and finds himself alone and lonely in a one way conversation with thousands of people who only know his voice." -Robert Sproul, No Depression


Pam Brandon is a Vocalist, Bassist and a 25-year veteran of the San Francisco music scene. Over the years Pam’s vocal talent and performing style has won over audiences both in the US and in Europe, from intimate cafĂ© performances to festival stages, and has collaborated with artists within a broad range of genres from bluegrass to symphony chorales, from Peter Rowan to Lavay Smith. Originally from England, her early influences in folk, jazz and bluegrass music can be heard in her voice as she weaves her unique style through varied material. She currently fronts the San Francisco bluegrass band, Belle Monroe & Her Brewglass Boys as guitarist and vocalist, and is band leader and bassist in her jazz combo The Monroe Trio and local blues and rock & Roll ne’er do wells, The Luxomatics, appearing weekly at San Francisco’s historic Club Deluxe. Her career includes a ten-year tenure with legendary local swing bands, The Chazz Cats and Lost Weekend Western Swing Band, and over the past seven years she been a musical muse and sparring partner for Maurice Tani and 77 El Deora.
