Nashville based country artist AC Jones has had three Top 40 singles on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart with two of those singles also charting on the BIllboard Country Indicator Chart. AC and her band will provide a top level, high energy, professional concert, blending in country covers from all eras along with her radio charting original material. Whether a it is a 20-40 minute opening slot for your national headliner or being featured in her own 90 minute show, AC will deliver the best performance that modern country can offer.
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.
What to Expect
90 minutes of full tilt country entertainment consisting of not only AC original radio charting singles, but plenty of hot country covers from all eras of country music.
After four years of balancing a musical career and a college education in biochemistry, AC Jones dove into her country music career full-force. Since then, Jones has achieved three Top 40 singles on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart and two Billboard Country Indicator charting singles.
With modern production, thoughtful lyrics, and throwback, ear-catching melodies, AC has been known to attract fans from all genres - even those who have expressed that they aren't fans of country music. With a previous background in CCM, Gospel, and Worship Music, her vocals come with an edge of soul, and her performance comes through as an expression of the heart. Defining her music as an act of service, Jones states that, "Music is her passion, but people are her purpose," and that even if there is, "just one person out there who can put aside his or her worries and not feel so alone for those 3 minutes of a song," that it is all worth it.
Jones recently released an EP called Campfire Sessions, which was recorded live around a bonfire at a KOA in Waterloo, IA, during her 2019 summer tour. Over the course of her career, she has toured throughout the United States, has made appearances in Scotland and Canada, and has opened for acts such as the Kentucky Headhunters, Marty Stuart, Molly Hatchet, and The Oak Ridge Boys. In the summer of 2014, Jones's infant niece was diagnosed with type one diabetes inspiring her support and advocacy for those with T1D. She is also a supporter of the Salvation Army and, in the past 5 years, has raised over $28,000 for her hometown Salvation Army chapter through her annual Christmas concert benefit. In her free time, Jones enjoys preparing and testing new recipes for her YouTube feature, AC Jones Kitchen. She also enjoys running, kayaking, and cuddling with her beagle/blue heeler mix, Andie.
Additional Booking Notes
The band is fully self contained (backline, IEM's, mics, stands, etc) and only requires production (lights and FOH sound reinforcement) that you deem fitting for your show and expected attendance. Stage power and a 32 channel stage box for our inputs to your FOH console will get the job done! We can also quote on bringing our own production for smaller to mid size venues if required.
