You can say that Gavin Jones is synonymous with Rock-n-Roll.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Gavin has been tearin’ up the City of Rock-n-Roll Angels with his cool blend of slap and electric bass for over 25 years. As witnessed by this writer’s eyes, Gavin Jones is an icon in the Rock N’ Roll /Rockabilly scenes, and has been a sought after Bass Player by such artists and groups as: Danny Dean and the Homewreckers, Easter, Michael Ubaldini And Mystery Train, Gary Myrick, Joe Houston, Shakey Pete and the Faultline, Tim Karr, Jill Sharpe, Ronny North, Paul Humphrey’s O.M.D. Revisited ( featuring Paul Humphrey of O.M.D. and Claudia Brucken of Propaganda), TSOL’s Joe Wood, Hank Deluxe and the Elbowbenders and Three Blind Mice. Currently, Gavin is working his Rock-n-Roll prowess with VINTAGE CITY ROCKERS. Gavin Jones is endorsed by Ashdown Engineering, Spectraflex Cables, Morley Pedals, Getm’ Getm’ Guitar Straps and Steve Clayton Custom Picks… Gavin thanks God and The Love of his life Kym Brown, “The Rock that keeps me Rolling!”
I am no stranger to music and have been watching and playing in bands for over 25 years and I’m here to tell you that Gavin is the real deal, as can be seen in the list of musicians in which he has played. Gavin’s Bands have been on Tour Packages with The English Beat, The Specials, Berlin, Real Life, The Stray Cat Lee Rocker and opened Local Shows for Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, Eric Gales, Fishbone, Real Life, Y&T, L.A. Guns, Robert Gordon, Missing Persons, The Paladins, Freddy Fender, Gilby Clarke of Guns N Roses, Ratt, UFO, Bonham, Michael Schenker to name a few. When on stage, Gavin may be backing someone else with his Bass Guitar and Upright Bass Talents, but Gavin is a front man in and of himself; Gavin Jones IS Rock-n-Roll.
