From August 2017, I’ll be in Europe for a year, based in the beautiful village of Mus, not far from the Roman city of Nimes and its close neighbour Montpelier. I lost out on another dutch Elvis tour, scheduled for April – June 2017, through an unfortunate arm injury. Well on the road to full recovery, I suffered another blow when the September – October 2017 Rockin’ On Heaven’s Door tour was cancelled as the tour promoters pulled out. I was lucky enough, though, to be reunited with the Juniper team for a week-long session in the German countryside in July and there is talk of a gig with the Bochum Symphony Orchestra in December. But from August 12th 2017, I will be in the very sunny south of France, looking for work in France, UK, Holland, Germany and beyond. Does anyone need a super-reliable bass man?!
"I’m privileged to have worked with Jon on tour in 2016. His skill on the bass and his vocal talent are exemplary and his work ethic is incredible. He’s earned my respect both as a musician and a person."
Eddie Allen, Guitarist - Marty Wilde and The Wildcats. Ex Editor Guitarist Magazine.
"Apart from being a genuinely lovely guy he is also a top bass man. Check out the JENNER, MELLOR rhythm section on the last OUCH album MEDWAY DOG..".
Clive Jenner, drummer - Groove Armada, Lenny Kravitz, The Proclaimmers, The Freestylers
"First and foremost Jon is an excellent bass player with a superb knack for writing lyrical, melodic bass lines for original material. If you’re playing covers, Jon is not only a quick learner – but more importantly when the parts have entered his mind they stay there and will be delivered consistently at any time under any circumstance."
Preben Raunsbjerg, Producer and guiatrist - James Burton's band
"His bass playing and harmonies are second to none in all the different styles of music that we covered and he is the most honest and hardworking bloke I have ever worked with.”
Kevin Taylor, Ouch!
