The Jon Spear Band!
The Jon Spear Band can be adventurous in its musical tastes but never strays very far from its blues roots, which provides the foundation for the band’s music. Nominated by Blues Blast Magazine for the prestigious best Live Blues Recording of 2016 award, all three of the Jon Spear Band’s CDs have charted in the US, France, UK, Spain, and Australia and have been listed on the annual top 100 Roots Music Report Contemporary Blues Chart for the past three consecutive years. The band has opened for nationally touring acts including Debbie Davies, Delbert McClinton, Anson Funderburgh, the Iguanas, the Chris Duarte Group, Memphis Gold, and more, and competed competed in the 31st and 33rd International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Based in Central Virginia, the band’s members are Jon Spear (guitar and vocals), Andy Burdetsky (bass), John Stubblefield (drums) and Dara James (lead vocals and guitar plus harmonica).
