THE JIM JONES ALL STARS
Open you ears, arms and hearts to welcome The Jim Jones All Stars into your lives! Fronted by legendary testifier Jim Jones – formerly of Thee Hypnotics,
Black Moses, The Jim Jones Revue and Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind – his
latest project sees him swan dive into not only his primordial influences and his own classic-packed back catalogue, but also into a spicy gumbo of hot, new
Joined by former Jim Jones Revue members Gavin Jay (bass) and Elliot
Mortimer (piano and keyboards), The Jim Jones All Stars are augmented
guitarist Carlton Mounsher, drummer Chris Ellul (The Heavy) and the 3way
tenor/baritone sax attack of Stuart Dace, Chuchi Malapersona and Tom
Hodges Born out of necessity, born with a tail (and horns) and simply born to boogie, The Jim Jones All Stars are an unholy trinity of birth.
“The whole COVID/Brexit problem just made it impossible to continue with The
Righteous Mind,” says Jim Jones, “but with various live offers and opportunities
still coming in I had to come up with something, or else just go insane.
“Necessity, being the mother of invention, surprised us all when she delivered a healthy, heavyweight, blue-eyed amalgam of incendiary ramalama soul.”
Speaking of the new line-up, Jim Jones has a wicked glint in his eye when he says: “It’s a pleasure to have that much horn going on, as it allows us to plunge into the succulent, dark meat of the low-down, greasy, chitlin’ groove. .. where all the flavour is!” Warming to the theme, Jones adds: “There’s a whole new planet of killer songs and I’m landing on it now and preparing to plant my freak flag. And on top of that, we’re going to be deep-frying à la carte from my entire back catalogue.
“This is the gig you’ve been waiting for!”
