JonesWorld hails from Nashville, Tennessee. Now, we know that Nash Vegas ain't exactly known for Funk and Rock, but maybe we can change that! JonesWorld is our own little extended family network, a universifunkdified group of peeps who just want to get together and celebrate every chance we can. The music is the excuse and the backbone of the reason to throw the party. Headed by Toddzilla (the JonesWorld "Minister of Funk" and lead guitarist), JonesWorld is the biggest jam since the Mothership landed. The shows are an all-out sensory assault, complete with go-go dancers (known as the Glittachix), giant smoking fuzzy dice, and Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. JonesWorld is an experience you HAVE to see, because you'll never know what will happen next. So come along for the ride, don't judge anyone, and live by the creed of Peace, Love n' Funk!

HOT MESS’s diverse indie-pop-rock sound maintains a widespread accessibility that could easily be found in a program rotation next to Adele, The White Stripes, or Lady Gaga--titillating listeners, label execs, and station programmers across the globe. Comprised of vocal powerhouse Storey Condos, who is reminiscent of a female Freddie Mercury; the extraordinary, whisper-to-a-roar lap steel guitar of Marc Anderson; expertly expressive electric guitarist Ryan Maker; consummate, CAMMIE (Chico Area Music Awards) award-winning bassist, Hypatia Runcie; and impeccable indie-pop/rock drummer Tom Myers, their eclectic instrumentation and mesmerizing original lyrics evoke a visceral fan reaction that multiplies and grows, play after play, show after show.
