Legendary blues man coming to Golden

One of Canada’s top bluesmen, JW-Jones, is on the move and will be playing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar.

JW-Jones is preparing for a special show at the Rockwater Grill and Bar in Golden.

One of Canada’s top bluesmen, JW-Jones, is on the move and will be playing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Monday, October 8, starting at 8:10 p.m.

His 7th release, titled “Seventh Hour,” Jones teamed up with multi-Juno award winning artist/producer, Steve Dawson, to mix the album.

Jones has been featured on a Guitar World Magazine CD called “Guitar Masters Vol. 2,” which put him alongside guitar stars B.B. King, Jimmy Page, and Carlos Santana among others. This led him to an endorsement deal with Gibson guitars.

Though Jones keeps one foot planted in his roots, the Maple Blues Award winner works to create music which will be appealing to younger audiences.

Jones tours with Jansen Richardon on drums and Laura Greenberg on bass which brings added power to any performance.

His last few CDs have hit #1 on B.B. King’s Bluesville on Sirius-XM Radio in the U.S.A. and Jones continues to win over audiences across the globe with his high-energy live performances.
