Painted Mandolin explores the acoustic music of Jerry Garcia. Featuring Joe Craven of the Garcia/Grisman Band; Matt Hartle; Larry Graff; & Roger Sideman. 

"Jamming instrumentals, grooving energy and vocals shared by all, Painted Mandolin explores the acoustic side of Jerry Garcia, from his early jug band days, to the Bluegrass of Old and In the Way, through the Grateful Dead’s "Reckoning" period, Jerry's acoustic band and the Garcia Grisman project. This quartet features acoustic guitar, "banjotar" (a 6 string guitar tuned banjo), mandolin, fiddle, percussion and bass that create a sound of memories, traditions and innovations all in a fresh jam that Jerry would like. We think you will too."

Shakey Zimmerman brings a fresh, authentic, true to form sound of rocks two most iconic songwriters. The songs are carried by Nevins, who has an uncanny ability to channel both Dylan and Youngs trademark voices, while giving them his own stamp. The catalog of songs is deep. Shows are packed with famous songs that come one after another entertaining audiences of all ages. The band can also surprise even the biggest fans with some unexpected deep cuts. Shakey Zimmerman is locked and loaded with a dizzying array of tunes that span the decades, and Nevins embraces both the sensitive side of Dylan and Young, as well as the power-packed electric driven rock and roll side. 

Pat Nevins played for six years as a member of Ghosts of Electricity, solidifying his knack for delivering intense Bob Dylan style vocals. He has shared the stage and opened for many famous names, including Bob Weir, David Nelson, The Radiators, Commander Cody, Merle Saunders, Koko Taylor, and Lonnie Brooks. Nevins is joined in the band by fingerpicking and fierce attack of guitar slinger, Jody Salino. As a protégé of Jorma Kaukonen, as well as Dave Van Ronk, Stefan Grossman, John Renbourne, and Ian Buchannan, all students of Reverend Gary Davis, Salino developed his guitar prowess as both an acoustic and electric force in his band The Bluescasters. Salino is also a highly skilled recording engineer who has worked his studio magic on many album projects alongside Bill Kirchen, Phil Lesh, Jimmy Herring, Rasheid Ali, Jaco Pastorius, and Earnest Boom Carter. Joining Pat and Jody will be popular Marin county bassist, Jen Rund of Lumination and Tally Up.

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!
