Jinx Jones Duo -
rockabilly, country, maybe a little jazz
Thursday, August 13, 8 PM to 10 PM
3049 20th St x. Alabama
San Francisco, CA
all ages, no cover
Good simple grub
- pizzas, sandwiches, soups, salads. Beer
and wine, coffee, tea. Get a light dinner,
have something to drink, and hear me backing
deep-fried guitar hero Jinx Jones. A guitar will
twang, a bass will be slapped, and heartaches will
be sung. Here's a review of Jinx's newest
Jinx Jones and the King Tones - rockabilly, old-school country, and surf
Sand Dollar Restaurant
3458 Shoreline Hwy (Highway 1)
Stinson Beach CA 94970
The Sand Dollar has been around since 1921. Inside is a converted vintage houseboat, of the sort that used to be found around San Francisco and Marin County in the late 19th century.
Jinx Jones and the
Jazzabilly All-Stars - Honky Tonk, Rockabilly,
Surf, Jazz and more
Friday, August 21, 8:30 - 11 PM (the third Friday of every month)
2424 Lincoln Ave, Alameda, CA 94501 (near Park)
no cover, all ages - restaurant/bar
This place has really good German food, a great beer selection, a full bar, and is a place I've often gone to on my own time and dime.
Jinx Jones is a gen - u - wine guitar hero. Check out the article on Jinx in the SF Chronicle's SFGate. Jinx has played with Roy Buchanan, Chuck Berry, recorded with En Vogue, and many others.
If you want to hear the band I strongly recommend reservations specifying your seating preference near the band, or sitting at the bar. This is an eclectic night of music. The music can range from "Misirlou" (the song that licks off "Pulp Fiction") to Thelonious Monk to Merle Haggard, and if Jinx is feeling it, you might get a couple of real surprise tunes at the end of the night. I know he's surprised me!
There was a nice write-up about Jinx in the San Francisco Chronicle's culture blog about the local "twang" scene - "Jinx is a guitar virtuoso who seamlessly moves from rockabilly to jazz to twang and back again, sometimes in the same song." Read the article here.

Jinx Jones Jazz Trio

I'll be playing a jazz trio gig with guitarist Jinx Jones. Jinx will be playing jazz standards, with an emphasis on the tunes played by jazz guitar greats Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, and Kenny Burrell. Cafe Claude has a small zinc bar (the bar is pretty much the only place you can see the band) and really good French food.
Cafe Claude is on an alley running parallel to and one block west ("uphill") from Kearney, between Bush and Sutter, in the Financial District.
