Jones Family Gospel Singers

Saturday, September 23, 2017
Show Starts at 2pm
General Admission $10
Historic Casino Hall – 254 N. Jefferson Street
Tickets are available at the Historic Casino Hall or online

The Jones Family Singers, consisting in part of five sisters, two brothers and their father, have been tearing up churches and festivals for almost three decades. This sensational gospel band’s awe inspiring stage show is contagious and thrilling; a full on emotional explosion of passion and precision.  Straight out of the Mt. Zion Pentecostal Holiness Church in the tiny town of Markham, Texas, this powerful family showcases a dynamic and timeless range of material and repertoire paired with vocal virtuosity and musicianship that holds its own with the top acts on the touring circuit today.

“Modern practitioners of a long musical tradition…infusing their joyful, reverent songs with elements of vintage soul and R&B” declares the Wall Street Journal. “The three-generation gospel collective’s high-energy performances are the living embodiment of the indelible connection between the black church and its rock and soul offspring” notes the Austin Chronicle. “It was all joyful praise, brilliantly timed with one crescendo after another” boasts the New York Times, and both Rolling Stone and NPR called them “a must see act” at SXSW.
