Escape Mardi Gras tour + Ogden Museum 3/19 

Hello friends near and far! 

Mardi Gras season is upon us in New Orleans!  Which means the busier season for us, gratefully. 

We're escaping the bulk of Mardi Gras this year and heading out west.  We'll be home for a few of the special, early parades, and leaving just before it gets extra-extra here in New Orleans.  We're so excited to revisit some of our spots in AZ and NM and explore more of West TX. 

We do have some local shows to highlight between now and then - 

Tues. Jan 28th - 7-9pm - The…

Happy 2020 + Save the Date + Tours ahead 

HAPPY 2020!! 
We're so excited to be in a new decade!  It feels more significant and hopeful than just entering a new year. 

After trekking over 23K miles just in tour miles (!!), we're winding down December with a little bit less to do-ness.  Somehow, that's more miles than we traveled in 2018, even though we went all the way to the PNW and back.  

We officially started Sweet Jones (former band name) in 2009 and it’s amazing to look back on the last ten years of growth, exploration and change.  We’re…

December - Alabama/TX/NOLA 

Happy Holiday times! 
We're so pleased to be winding down 2019. 
I hope you all are making resolutions to make time for self-care, to nurture the experiences that bring you joy and to surround yourself with community that you find your soul is drawn towards and uplifted by.  These are a few of our favorite things...

Happy All Saints Day! 
Of course, in New Orleans, it's all Saints, all the time, lol (#whodat !) 

We have been enjoying our autumn road adventures and collecting new friends and fans along the way. 
We seem to have such an affinity for Tennessee, and are going back up to Nashville November 9th to play a BAND SHOW! at the groovy place called Dee's Country Cocktail Lounge.  SO EXCITED!! 

We actually have a new song called Take Me to Tennessee that will be on a future album.

October Events - NOLA, MS, Tenn. and N. Carolina! 

Hey Folks!   

That last month flew by, and as of this writing, it's still summer in New Orleans for at least another week. (92 degrees today!)

Our new time slot on the radio show (102.3FM WHIV) is going well and we're in the midst of the FALL FUND DRIVE for the station; I'm sure you're very familiar with this tune wherever you listen to your Community-Supported Public Radio.
The station is having an open house event this Saturday (tomorrow!) at the station - 2762 Orleans Ave.  Come on by and see the…

Home on the range 

Hey Folks! 

We're back home in New Orleans and have several shows coming up this month!   Tour time and down time on the tour was 
nourishing and rejuvenating. 
Always happy to be back home, and incredibly grateful to everyone who supported and shared with us along the 5K+ mile journey! 
Amidst the heartache that is overflowing in this world, it is a gift to be able to share some light and upliftment through music. 

New Orleans, Arnaudville, LA and Pensacola!

Tour Time = TX+NM 

Happy Summer!

We're gearing up for annual sojourn out to New Mexico and Texas!
While last summer's tour found us way out west with lots of shows, we're reeling (real-ing) it in a bit to take a little down time for inspiration/rejuvenation.

Our schedule this summer allows for a balance of shows with some time to rest/write and record, primarily in El Rito, NM.

We'll start in Alexandria and then Austin area, bringing our drummer, Nolan Marsh with us.
Then home for a few days before we start the journey to…

Happy New Year! 

Hello Friends and Happy New Year! 

We're so grateful for the epic year that was 2018 for us, and you all helped make it possible. 
25K miles, and a full year of shows, including many new states and places we'd not yet been; 
a new DRR record; NCIS: New Orleans TV appearance and song placement; 
Melissa played her first Bass guitar gigs; Matthew continues playing with Shawn Williams (who is nominated for two Offbeat Awards here in New Orleans!) 

One day at a time, we keep truckin' down the path, our heads…
