We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome back one of the true greats of modern rock’n’roll!
Jim Jones returns on June 1st with with his exciting new outfit Jim Jones All Stars. Just like his previous shows with The Righteous Mind and Thee Hypnotics, this promises to be an explosive evening that will be remembered for years to come…
“Jim Jones has fashioned the All Stars as a vehicle to return to the stage and reinvigorate his mojo” – Classic Rock
A bubbling swamp curse of unholy ass shake, Jim Jones All Stars is the latest project from garage godfather Jim Jones (Thee Hypnotics, The Jim Jones Revue). Formed during the pandemic, it features The Jim Jones Revue members Gavin Jay and Elliot Mortimer, drummer Chris Ellul (The Heavy), veteran punk blues guitarist Carlton Mounsher (The Swamps), and a full horn section.
After a midnight offering at the real crossroads in Clarksdale, Mississippi, the band made the pilgrimage to Memphis, Tennessee to record with Memphis Magnetic founder Scott McEwen (Elvis Costello, JD McPherson, Nick Waterhouse, Nicole Atkins) in May of 2022.
‘It’s Your Voodoo Working’ (a Charles Sheffield cover) featuring Nikki Hill on guest vocals, and Mike Gabriel (The Sermon) on theremin was the first single from the album ‘Ain’t No Peril’ recorded there.
Followed by gunfighter ballad ‘And Your Arms Will Be the Heavens’ (which features Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind’s Mal Troon on pedal steel, and Solomon Arye Rosenschein on guitar) and a live Maida Vale session on BBC Radio 6. The band plan to release two more singles on Ako-Lite Records before hitting the road for a tour in May/June 2023.
“Jim Jones All Stars leave the sold out crowd in state wide-eyed excitement” – Vive le Rock
“Jim Jones is entering his imperial phase” – Shindig
“Bigger, better and even noisier than ever!” – Louder Than War
