Houston Jones is high-octane Americana – Check ‘em out in August
However, Houston Jones is not one person. They are: Glenn Houston (lead guitar), Travis Jones (lead vocal, acoustic guitar), Henry Salvia (keyboards and accordion), Chris Kee (standup bass and acoustic guitar), and Peter Tucker (drums).
Glenn, Chris and Peter were founding Waybacks members, btw. So they go way-back, so to speak, and perform original folk, bluegrass, blues and gospel. Their music is awesome, in my opinion.
