The Freddy Jones Band are roots-rock specialists in the tradition of groups like the Eagles, The Band and The Allman Brothers. Their influences stretch across the archives of musical history. Their sound is a blend of blues, rock and folk music all-together.
Throughout the 90's, endless tours across the U.S. helped build a loyal fan base for The Freddy Jones Band. After playing a show with Widespread Panic at the Park West in Chicago, Illinois, Capricorn Records signed FJB their first recording deal. From 1993-1999, they had 5 major label releases including Waiting for the Night (1993), self-titled independent release The Freddy Jones Band (1993), North Avenue Wake Up Call (1995), Lucid (1997), and Mile High Live (1999). The band played nearly 200-250 shows annually for about 8 years.
FJB gained national notoriety with AAA Radio hits "In a Daydream" and "Take the Time". They shared the stage with great musicians like Widespread Panic, Phish, Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews and Matchbox 20, to name a few. Their tour history reveals an extremely hard-working band who believed in their music and followed their dreams.
The group consists of Marty Lloyd (vocals and acoustic guitar), Jim Bonaccorsi (bass), Rob Bonaccorsi (guitar and vocals), Simon Horrocks (drums), and Wayne Healy (vocals and guitar).
After a 5-year hiatus, the original band reunited August 20, 2005 for the Riverview Music Festival in Chicago to a fantastic hometown crowd. The band is currently playing select dates throughout the country and enjoying every minute of being back in the limelight.
