JW-JONES is a JUNO Award Nominee, Billboard Top 10 Blues artist, 2020 IBC Winner, has released 12 albums and performed in 23 countries and 4 continents. He's performed numerous times with Buddy Guy, and Woodstock legends, Canned Heat. JW can offer JAZZ combos, as well as the full high-energy show they perform on festival stages across the globe.
HOROJO TRIO performs Rock/Roots (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Elvis), Country (Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson), R&B (James Brown, Stevie Wonder) and Soul (Ray Charles). Great for weddings / corporate events. The Ottawa Citizen says “[Jeff's] voice practically bowls you over with intensity, as sweet, rich, and gooey as molasses in a heatwave".
We hired JW for a party and they delivered! Great music and our guests loved the pace and style. We had a 1920s theme party and they provided upbeat fun music over dinner. These guys are awesome and professionals. Will definitely hire them again!
From a logistics perspective it could not have been any smoother. JW called me to confirm the details and finalize the terms. The day of the event, the band arrived on time, immediately scoped out the space and picked the best spot to set up. Once they completed the set up, they broke to eat and then became all business. This band is the real deal.
I spent 13 years hanging at Manny's Carwash in the Upper East side of Manhattan and never experienced a band perform as well as this group from Ottawa. Consummate professionals, JW-Jones Band are true performers on stage who know their craft and love to play music in front of an audience. This was their first event in front of a physical audience since the pandemic, and their passion to play was only equalled only by their talent. Our guests begged them for a third set (encore) which they willingly obliged despite the late hour.
The Canada Day celebrations on our lake the next night were all buzzing about this band and how the contributed to the "best party ever." If you want a garden variety party, hire a DJ or another band. If you want your event to be legendary--then hire JW-Jones blues band. It's good for the soul.
