The Billy Jones Bluez Band will be featured at the next Bluesday Tuesday on Oct. 8 at the Newport Country Club from 7 to 9 p.m.
Jones and the band blend contemporary and traditional blues sounds with funk and hip-hop. Jones is no stranger at KASU concerts, having played numerous times for the station's live event audiences in Jonesboro and Newport. Jones appears with his band regularly at casinos in Mississippi, for private and corporate events, and at various nightspots in central Arkansas where the band is based. Admission is free; KASU personnel pass the hat so that concertgoers may tip the band. Sponsors are C&C Distributors, Harris Ford and ASU-Newport.
