Are you looking for real music? Are you hoping for a performance that's memorable and special?
International Blues Challenge winner (2017), JUNO Award Nominee and Billboard Top 10 Blues artist JW-Jones tours constantly, and is known for his high-energy, crowd pleasing live shows.
Jones has released ten albums, and performed in twenty-three countries and four continents. JW plays over 100 shows per year, and has been invited to perform numerous times alongside artists such as Buddy Guy, and Woodstock legends, Canned Heat.
George Thorogood & The Destroyers' management specifically requested Jones to open several of their tour dates including standing ovations at Massey Hall and Ottawa's National Arts Centre.
JW's latest release 'Live' was named the Hot Shot Debut on the Billboard Top 10. “His evolution as a musician and vocalist shine through on this record like never before. Real songs, real playing by real people, and JW is the real deal.” – Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones)

There are two options: JW-Jones with his band, or his new cover band HOROJO Trio...
JW's band typically performs a combination of their own material, traditional blues, blues rock, swing, and jazz. Their high energy show is always a hit with blues fans and they are available for shows ranging from intimate gatherings to theatres to corporate functions. More about them listed above!
HOROJO Trio plays a broad range of curated cover songs: Rock and Roots (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Elvis), Country (Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams), Rhythm & Blues (James Brown, Stevie Wonder), and Soul (Ray Charles, Joe Cocker). They are a great fit for everything from house parties to weddings to corporate events. If you're looking for more popular/recognizable content played by extremely talented musicians, look no further. These guys are sure to be a memorable part of your event, and will have your guests smiling, singing along, or maybe even dancing if the mood strikes!
HOROJO Trio features drummer Jamie Holmes, singer/keyboardist Jeff Rogers, and guitarist/singer JW-Jones. Jeff is known as one of the hardest working artists in the nation's capital clocking over 250 shows per year. The Ottawa Citizen says “his voice practically bowls you over with intensity, as sweet, rich and gooey as molasses in a heatwave”, while Nick Krewen (Globe & Mail, Grammy.com, Billboard) calls JUNO nominee JW-Jones “a frequent resident of Billboard's Top 10 Blues charts and roots radio favourite”. Jamie is one of the most versatile drummers in the country and has toured throughout North-America and Europe and recorded in Nashville with Grammy winning producer Tom Hambridge. The trio came together organically from a chance jam session after a corporate event that was so inspired that it left the audience and the musicians wanting more. Even before their first gig, they had already been called an Ottawa “super group”.
