In their never-ending pursuit of the ultimate groove, B-Side Jones has already become the the talk of the south Florida music scene. This 8 piece funk/rock outfit has already won the hearts of well known national recording artists and guarantees that no one will leave their shows with anything less than a huge smile on their face!
It began as a chance encounter between 2 powerful musical entities – drummer Joe Stout and ex “Luba” guitarist Mark Lyman who left the national recording/touring scene in Canada several years ago. With their love of classic funk and rock as the beacon, they searched until they found their musical counterparts in bassist Dave Hemingway, vocalist Tabby Allman, keyboardist Sammie Hudson, saxophonists Sam Velazquez & Bart Gregory, and Derek Kuzmirek on trumpet and together they synergized their musical alliance into a driving rhythmic machine!
Imagine the legendary and timeless guitar lines of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love, AC/DC’s Back in Black, or Aerosmith’s Sweet Emotion – now add to it a 3 piece multi-powered horn section, along with driving bass, bombastic drums with soaring lead vocals, and you have the one hell of a high octane performance band you definitely want to party with!!
Tailoring their repertoire to give B-Side Jones their unique sound, they pool from songs seldom heard but always remembered, from the Legendary James Brown’s “Sex Machine” to Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin),” to Joe Cocker’s Stones infused rendition of “Respect Yourself” and yes, even Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” and let’s not forget Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” to name just a few.
