Desmond Jones is a five-piece rock band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Their original music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, funky bass lines, groovy drumbeats, and a big ole' pile of saxophone. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high-energy shows with a high level of musicianship and skillful improvisation. Each show, set list, and song is different from night to night. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Mingus, Phish, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. Since 2012, the group has played 800+ shows across the country and has shared the stage with bands like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Papadosio, Ripe, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, EOTO, Here Come the Mummies, Aqueous, Mungion, Dopapod, Nth Power, Kick the Cat, Joe Hertler, Eggy, and many more. Desmond Jones has released two EPs and four full length studio albums available on all major platforms. The band is touring in 2023 and hitting every diner along the way.
