I want to be the person who makes songs so good and performs so well that people scream just at the sight of them walking out on stage. With a large fanbase comes power to change the world for the better and I think music and live performance is a strong gateway to positive change in people’s lives.

Smokey Jones' Bio

Smokey Jones and The 3 Dollar Pistols are not your average country band. They are swash buckling, bull riding, bar fighting, honky tonk legends.  The Jones boys pay an honest tribute to classic country and honky tonk music. It’s about the show, it’s about the experience. And, it’s about being entertained through country music with a twinge of comedy. It’s about the supreme musicianship these guys have established through decades of studying the greats. One of the few bands left with pedal steel and twangy guitars, they will take you on a ride through decades of country sounds. Two-stepping, line dancing, beer drinking country music is this band’s specialty, a show not to be missed.
