JONES announce Minnesota mini-tour in January!
Clay Hagen and his gritty new blues/rock band JONES will be playing three shows in Minnesota on January 9th, 10th and 11th. It’s been almost four years since A Night in the Box called it quits. Clay Hagen, the charismatic singer/guitarist of the widely celebrated Minneapolis outfit, knew he couldn’t leave music alone for long. Clay went solo for a short time but missed band life. In 2011 he called on a few old friends – Nick Rush and Ian Tsan (Rambos, MPLS Henrys) to play bass and drums. The trio formed a new group called “JONES” and began a long distance collaboration between the Minneapolis and Chicago-based musicians. Clay would travel to Chicago for a weekend every few months and leave with a couple more songs each time. After two years of this, the band headed into Chicago’s Minbal Studios to record a six song EP. JONES is a hard-driving, electric blues/rock band and a perfect vehicle for Clay’s passionate performing style. The debut album will be released in 2015. As mentioned above, JONES will be playing 3 shows in Minnesota in January. They are:
JANUARY 9TH @ RED STAR IN DULUTH – Playing with Feeding LeRoy – Free show, 9PM, 21+
JANUARY 10TH @ KATHY’S IN ROCHESTER – Playing with The Modern Era - Free show, 9PM, 21+
