We are a band based in Phoenix Az and have played around the valley for over 40 years. The 3 of us pictured have played together since the 1970's. We are close friends and because of this when we get together we have fun and because fun is contageous, the audience always has a good time. Our music is so diverse we can usually shape it to the group we are playing for. Making it FUN has always been our answer to a great event. Mike Combest & Bill Anderson began in 1970 and in 1972 formed the 1st "Joshua Stone Band" and played together through the 1970's. By 1980 we did go seperate ways. During this time Bill was doing a solo Mike was raising a family. In 2002 Mike & Bill reformed the "new" Joshua Stone Band and began playing at The Point Hilton Squaw Peak here in Phoenix. In 2004 we added old friend Steve Thomas, recorded our 1st CD and continued playing together till 2012 when Steve had obligations with another band. We added Lee Gendvilas, an original member and now a permanent member. Lee is quite the musician, playing Banjo, Mandolin and Stand up Bass. Please search for us on the internet by our name as there is so much informetion on our website.
