Common jones - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Steve started doing music at the age of 16 writing raps for fun. He later got involved with Mount up Productions and made a solo album, which made it to the Howard Stern Show for a listener submission and got some air time. After that he took a couple years off to focus on his family , but the music bug was still itching to get out, so he then joined a band called 5000 fingers of Dr.t. Things did not mesh as well as he would have hoped so after a year of playing with them took another break. Not long after finally got with some old friends and formed the Common Jones and finally found the right group that clicked with his style. Music influences include - Deftones, Fusebox Funk, Downset, Common, and Mos def.
Brian J Blood (AKA. B) Bass Guitar/ Vocals
Brian started playing/writing music at age 16. Played in the Saint Louis local music scene for 17 yrs. After being in the music industry for 17 yrs the thing I really enjoy is seeing family, friends and fans gathering and having the time of their life’s at one of our shows. The more you guy’s give us energy wise, the more we give it back.
Musical styles as a bass player: Heavy funk is my preference to play. I enjoy all styles of music though. I have always tried to pick my bands very precisely, to the style of music, which is played. I will never pigeon hole myself to one style. I pride myself on being able to play any style of music to a professional standard.
