VICTOR, ID – Horns, high-energy, endless fun – are you ready? Remember Jones is bringing the good times and then some. This week, Music on Main hosts a jam-packed night featuring Remember Jones, a soul/pop singer, storyteller, and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy.
Collaboratively supported by a large ensemble of musicians (often featuring female backing vocalists, a horn section, and a six-piece rhythm section), the band has played to countless packed and sold-out ballrooms, clubs, and theaters throughout the country. Remember Jones was named one of Paste Magazine and Daytrotter’s “Top 10 R&B/Soul Artists of 2017.”
In addition to touring and supporting two albums’ worth of original material, Remember Jones presents and fronts multiple productions that have also gained wide popularity. Back to Back to Black, a re-creation of the entire Amy Winehouse album with an orchestra of fifteen, and Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen in a twenty-piece arrangement, have helped Remember Jones develop a diverse audience as the band opens each performance with a set of original music.
Remember Jones has shared stages with George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Ronnie Spector and The Ronettes, Darlene Love, Buster Poindexter, Nigel Hall, The Hip Abduction, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes, and more.
Head over Victor City Park early to catch opening act Lonesome Gold, a Jackson-based folk, rock, and blues group led by songwriter Casey Jack Kristofferson. Casey finds inspiration from his deep roots in central Idaho, with influences from the scenic landscapes. An authentic mountain musician, his newest album, Bluebird Blackbird, has defined his genre-bending work and garnered him a growing fanbase. See you there!
