Desmond Jones is a five-piece American rock band from Grand Rapids, MI. With original music written to complement the group’s sound as a whole, the music is centered on melodic guitar riffs, groovy bass lines, funky drum beats, and smooth saxophone. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Miles Davis, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high-energy shows with a high level of musicianship and skillful improvisation. Each show, setlist, and song is different from night to night. The group has played over 600 shows and has been touring the country sharing the stage with bands like Papadosio, EOTO, Here Come the Mummies, Joe Hertler, Aqueous, TAUK, Dopapod, and many more. NPR calls their debut studio album an “eclectic showcase of musical diversity” and they are currently touring their brand new album “Hello, Helou” which just won the 2019 WYCE Listener’s Choice Album of the Year.
