Kenney Jones & The Jones Gang
Drawing from all their past associations Kenney Jones and Robert Hart (Small Faces; The Faces; The Who; Bad Company; and many others) the core members of The Jones Gang don’t need to be reminded about the history of rock. After all, they helped shape it.
This is not to say that The Jones Gang is just a trip down memory lane. The band has its own unique musical imprint and one that has a very contemporary feel, as well. Unlike the formation or other groups The Jones Gang came together as a fluke when Jones assembled the original band to play for a charity show held at his own Hurtwood Park Polo Club. “You couldn’t throw a band like that together and form a so called ‘super group’, which we were not, even though everyone was well known” say’s Jones. “Through my polo club endeavors now and again, people were asking me if I could put a band together for obvious reasons” says Jones. I always declined it and then a couple of times I did it. For one event I didn’t have a singer, and it was Boz Burrell from Bad Company who said “I know a singer who sings better than Paul Rodgers with knobs on.” He put me in touch with Robert and once I heard Robert’s voice I thought this is great!
The band continued rehearsing, writing and recording; producing their debut album Any Day Now. One track Angel had the highest debut at Number 15 in the US Billboard Charts surpassing well known artists such as, Mariah Carey, Lil’ Kim and Nine Inch Nails. The track then went on to reach Number 1 and was the number 1 most added on the FMQB chart for 3 weeks in a row, the first single to do so in years. Much of the Jones Gang album harkens back to that classic Faces sound. One track Gypsy Lane which features Ronnie Wood and Ian McLagen is an ode to the late Ronnie Lane.
There is no doubt the excitement around the band is a result of its amazing historical past, especially that of Jones. Joining Kenney and Robert in the new line up is Johnson Jay an Australian guitar virtuoso, singer and songwriter currently based in London, Mark Read a British singer / songwriter, best known as a member of the band A1, one of the most successful Pop bands of the late 90s early 2000s. and Pat Davey one of the finest and funkiest Bass players around.
