Dennis Jones

Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, and most recently, George Thorogood and Tinsley Ellis...  after opening for these greats, and touring the US, Canada, and Europe for years, Dennis Jones and his band are now HEADLINING! Sizzling hot guitar solos. Smooth and soulful vocals. High-energy stage performance. Backed by a rhythm section that is second to none, this IS Dennis Jones. Check out a live show, and you’ll instantly agree, this band ROCKS the blues like NO other! 

Dennis’s feet are firmly rooted in the past, yet his heart and soul are connected to the present. He writes songs that seamlessly blend the best of both worlds, presenting a unique and contemporary style of American rock and blues. And he isn’t afraid to tackle the controversial issues of today. Dennis has written songs for other notable artists as well. Guitar Shorty and others! 

 He also spent three years playing guitar with The Bus Boys (the boys are back in town) and with The Zac Harmon Band, when they won first place in the 2004 Blues Music Awards Competition in Memphis TN.

CD/DVD Releases

Since 2003, Dennis has released 7 successful CDs, and a DVD. All released on his own label, Blue Rock Records. Each and every release has met with rave reviews.

You can hear his music on most blues & roots radio stations in the US and around the world.
