Mother Jones has garnered much attention on the jam band scene since forming over four years ago in Southern Californa. Their original songs have an infectuous appeal, fusing elements of rock, reggae, blues, R&B, country, Latin and jazz, creating a sound that connects with a wide audience. Mother Jones keeps a busy schedule, performing at festivals and well known venues throughout California and neighboring states.
The band has built a large fan base, drawing audiences in with their strong musicianship, harmony-rich vocals and solid songwriting. Mother Jones puts on a show that is an experience to be remembered, with an almost tangible energy emanating from the stage and a cohesive groove that everyone can feel. They work hard, generating powerful jams and creating vocal landscapes that often bring the crowd to it's feet, if they're not out there shakin' it already! With the release of their second album, "Union", which is already generating tremendously positive feedback from fans and music & radio industry folk, Mother Jones looks forward to a great year ahead.
