Organizer's other events

Tony Jones is a multi-talented performer.  Being raised in a musical family (his grandfather was renowned composer Leon René and father, drummer Rick Jones) his first instrument was piano.  He later took on the drums in high school and is primarily known on that instrument.

Tony is also a master of vocal impersonations.  His impersonation of Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong is well known.  On this recording he sings two songs written by his grandfather, Leon René.  When It’s Sleepytime Down South was Satchmo’s theme song and Mr. Satchmo is a tribute to the late great jazz artist.  Leon and Louis were good acquaintances since they both grew up in New Orleans at the same time.  Leon had a stint as a pianist with the legendary trumpet player, Buddy Petit.
