Billy Jonas Band - Family Concert
Asheville's own Billy Jonas Band will bring their creative, interactive and soul-inspiring family concert to the Grey Eagle. It's funky folk music for the whole family! They've got some NEW music up their sleeves -- be the first to hear! They'll also feature songs from their most recent family CD, "Build It Back Again", as well as old favorites enjoyed by all ages.

Throw out the rules when the Billy Jonas Band hits the stage! It’s a musical conversation … a sonic celebration … a splendiferous gathering of old and young, because at a Billy Jonas Band show, the ensemble is… everyone.

Led by vocalist/guitarist/“industrial re-percussionist” Billy Jonas, the BJB features multi-part vocal harmonies, drums, bass, marimba, homemade instruments, and audience-engaging choreography. The Billy Jonas Band includes Ashley Jo Farmer, Sherman Hoover, and Juan Holladay. They are known internationally for highly engaging and energetic performances. Impossible to categorize, the band combines influences from folk, jazz, non-western traditions and one-of-a-kind sources, including the audience’s imagination!

With quirky, adventurous lyrics and creative instrumentation, their concerts captivate all ages. Their eight CDs and two DVDs have garnered a bevy of honors and critical acclaim, including a New York Times “Best” listing, a First Place Gold from American Federation of Independent Musicians, and multiple Parent’s Choice Gold Awards. Their CD “Happy Accidents” received a USA Today “10 Best of 2009” award, and the newest family CD by the Billy Jonas Band, “Build It Back Again,” received multiple awards including an Independent Music Award nomination. In April 2010, Billy and the Band were invited to play at the White House!
