Desmond Jones

Desmond Jones is a five-piece American rock band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. With original music written to complement the group’s sound as a whole, the music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, funky bass lines, groovy drumbeats, and smooth saxophone. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high-energy shows with a high level of musicianship and skillful improvisation. Each show, set list, and song is different from night to night. The group has played over 800 shows all over the country and has shared the stage with bands like Papadosio, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, EOTO, Here Come the Mummies, Aqueous, Mungion, Dopapod, Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers, and many more. Festival appearances include Electric Forest, Resonance, Werk Out, Founders Fest, The Caverns and more. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Charles Mingus, Phish, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few.
