The Jon Spear Band (JSB) has been impressing blues lovers ever since it first started out as a Central Virginia Blues Society jam band back in 2012. With the release of their first CD “Old Soul,” these four talented artists took their music to a whole new level earning critical acclaim, extensive radio airplay and new fans from all around the U.S. and from as far away as Africa, Asia and Australia.
The band’s 2nd CD entitled “Live Music is Better” was recorded before a live audience at the Southern Café & Music Hall in Charlottesville VA on November 27, 2015. On that night, the band not only reprised some of their award-winning original songs from their first CD “Old Soul,” but also covered several red-hot blues songs in the imaginative style that has made them a favorite among a growing numbers of blues lovers. The band’s repertoire includes not just blues favorites but also original songs reflecting a wide range of genres including blues, funk, rock, R&B, swing, and even a little salsa.
