Houston Jones

Susie Glaze & the Hi Lonesome Band

Houston Jones invites you into a world of musical virtuosity and storytelling ranging from the myths of ancient Greece to the red dirt back roads of Waskom Texas. The acoustic heart of the band beats with the passion of five lifetimes lived in a musical landscape of revival tents to Irish pubs, New Orleans to the Great Plains to Motown, a church in Cape Cod to a punk club in Berkeley. A San Francisco based high-octane Americana band that performs an original repertoire that ranges from bluegrass and folk to blues and gospel, Billboard.com praised their “Wonderful original tunes;”Dirty Linen said “No one delivers the goods quite like Houston Jones… Houston Jones remains one of the West Coast’s most talented and entertaining bands.” 

This “confluence of sublime talent" -(SF Chronicle) features Travis Jones (lead vocals, guitar), who began performing as a child accompanying his mother on gospel tours in the South; bassist Joshua Zucker, who has worked with The Rowan Brothers, Peter Rowan, Caren Armstrong, David Gans, Randy Clark, David Phillips, Garrin Benfield and countless others.

Glenn Houston (lead guitars) the founding lead guitarist of the Waybacks, was voted Best Guitarist by the Northern California Bluegrass Society.

Peter Tucker (drums), who (along with Kee) was in the original rhythm section of the Waybacks, has performed and recorded with wide array of Americana musicians, including Tim Hardin, Richie Havens, the Beau Brummels, Warren Zevon and Skunk Baxter.

Henry Salvia (keyboards, accordion) has been featured with the Johnny Nocturne Band, Bo Diddley, Rickie Lee Jones and Big Jay McNeeley.
