EDGAR ‘JONES’ JONES – Live in concert. SOLD OUT.
July 7 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm£10
A FITTING FINALE TO PONTEFRACT’S LIQUORICE FESTIVAL HERE AT THE TAP, THE RATHER WONDERFUL EDGAR ‘JONES’ JONES LIVE IN CONCERT.
Also known as Edgar ‘Summertyme’ Jones, Edgar ‘Jones’ Jones’ musical path began as frontman and founder of Liverpool band The Stairs, championed by the likes of Elvis Costello and signed to Go! Discs, then also the home of future collaborators Paul Weller and The La’s. The Stairs debut single ‘Weed Bus’ and album Mexican R ‘n’ B, became classics of their time and the band have recently enjoyed a much lauded reunion.
Through The Isrites and on to The Big Kids, Edgar’s muse was restless, but by 2005, he seemed to have found the perfect palate for his influences not to mention the players to play the tunes. Jazz, rock’n’roll, soul, funk and doo wop were smeared across debut solo album Soothing Music For Stray Cats, which was released to critical acclaim.
Now three albums in to his solo career, Edgar has achieved legendary cult status as an artist in his own right, and has played with the great and the good including Paul Weller, St Etienne and Lee Mavers, “A form of National Service” to quote Edgar himself.
He’s also one of the best live acts we have ever featured here at the Tap. A sold out performance that took our breath away. Get yer tickets now to avoid disappointment.
Here’s a track from Edgar’s much lauded ‘SOOTHING MUSIC FOR STRAY CAT’S’.
