AC Jones and her band is one of the hottest regional, high energy country acts around today. Fronted by AC Jones, the band performs country covers and AC's originals. The band is fully self contained, being able to provide its own FOH sound, backline, and lighting and is prepared for any type of event such as featured concerts, opener for a national touring act, fairs, festivals, rodeos, corporate events, and conventions.
On 10 July I attended a performance of Amanda and her band and I was not only blown away by their musical talent, but I was impressed with their adaptability to the audience. They performed at an RV Rally in Tiffin Ohio before 5 or 6 hundred people who were mostly over 60 years old. Although I personally loved every minute of their 2 hour performance, it was evident after one song that they were not a fit for this group, if they continued to do their normal sets. It could have gotten ugly. So once the band had a chance to regroup they used everything at their disposal to sing songs that this group could identify with. In some cases I think they were doing songs that, as a group, they had never done together. Along with enjoying their music, I have to say that as someone old enough to be all their fathers, I was proud of what they did. Some groups would have just said, I got my money and did what they had planned to do, but they didn't. I hope to see the group again.
Response from A.C. Jones:
Your kind words cannot be appreciated enough. We truly welcomed the challenge in putting our musicianship to the test and it was one of the most amazing moments of our time together as a band....all of us have come from different musical backgrounds, but we were able to pull from all of them to create a show to the best of our ability that satisfied our audience at that time. It was truly an growing experience for us and through it hope we became an even better band from it. The feedback on both our first set of planned material and second set of impromptu, improvised and pulled-from-the-past material was positive and wonderful. We certainly hope to be part of any future events your organization may have us provide entertainment. Thank you so much for taking your valuable time to share your experience.

She may be an Ohio native, but AC Jones has Nashville running through her veins. After four years of balancing a musical career and a college education in biochemistry, Jones signed to independent country music label, SSM Nashville, in the Spring of 2017. Her debut single, "Buses and Trains", was released to country radio across the nation on November 6, 2017. The single peaked at #33, giving it Top 40 status on the Music Row CountryBreakout Chart, and earned a spot on the Music Row Breakout Chart's "Most Added" list on multiple occasions. Over the course of her career, Jones has toured throughout the United States and has even made appearances in Scotland and Canada. Jones has opened for acts such as the Kentucky Headhunters, Marty Stuart, Molly Hatchet, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Branch and Dean. In the summer of 2014, Jones' infant niece was diagnosed with type one diabetes inspiring her support and advocacy of JDRF. Her collegiate research in targeted cancer immunotherapy encouraged her to become a "Partner in Hope" with St. Jude and volunteer her time for St. Baldrick's Foundation of Wheeling, WV and Upper Ohio Valley. In her free time, Jones enjoys preparing and testing new recipes for her YouTube channel's feature, "AC Jones Kitchen." She also enjoys running, kayaking, and cuddling with her beagle/blue heeler mix, Andie. Her second single, "Mr. Moon", was released to radio in mid-September 2018, and has already appeared on the Music Row CountryBreakout Chart's "Most Added" list on multiple occasions.
Additional Booking Notes
In order to offer the most memorable and professional concert experience, the band usually uses wireless in-ear monitors. This is usually not a problem as we bring all of our own sound equipment including FOH equipment for smaller to mid-size venues. If you have your own FOH sound for larger events, all we usually need to do is plug our monitor board outs into your audio snake. If that does not work, we can use open monitors just as well! Michael runs all monitor mixing from our system on the stage, freeing up your FOH personnel to just have to focus on the mix. Better yet, we sometimes travel with our own sound technician and appreciate sound booth privileges as he knows the more intimate details of our songs.
