About Half Pint
In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, saxophonist Chris Olivier found himself uprooted from New Orleans and relocated to Northern Indiana. He soon realized his need to share his New Orleans musical roots with the South Bend area and actively pursued finding the right blend of musicians; quickly discovered in Mark Gamble (trumpet), Steve Krojniewski (drums), Justin Ross (guitar & vocals), and Jayson Sites (bass).
Half-Pint Jones recently finished recording their first album, entitled Trilogy of Patches and Olaf, which will be released in mid-July. The songs in this album have merged into a new sound for the group, due to the diverse musical influences that each and every member bring to the table.
I feel the album is unique because of all the experiences we, as individuals, have had, adds drummer Steve Krojniewski. From marriage, to fatherhood, to losing parents, to fleeing home, to growing up and letting our true selves outeverything that has lead us to this point in our lives, has made Trilogy the incredible record it has become.
Half-Pint Jones firmly stands by the statement that they do not fit into any one category of musicand thats perfectly fine with them. Their music is a mixture of so many things; jam band, jazz, latin, reggae, rock, New Orleans funk. What brings it all together are the feel-good rhythms, lyrics with a message, unconventional horn lines and incredible story-telling solos.
