Hi all. Here is a few links to the music of my friends, Desmond Jones. They play jam music, rooted in blues rock and psychedelia, none of the electro stuff. Anyway, they have good tunes, not overly polished, and not too afraid to be goofy. I think you here at OKP will dig them. I don’t listen to a lot of jam music besides Phish, because other bands don’t go type 2, or are too uptight on stage. And so many bands just solo and don’t even hook up. Not Desmond Jones. They’ll serve you fat type 2, make you laugh and dance, and you might even be impressed. I will link their bandcamp for their first album, which is good in its own right, but I want you all to check out some of the live jams. They really take off and serve you something besides noodly peaks. I hope you like this as much as I do.

My favorite songs are Damp as the Dew, Ghosts in the Basement, and Melt.
Anyway, I’m not just boosting my friends’ music for the sake of it; I really hope the OKP enjoys these guys because there is a lot of honesty, intellect, creativity, heart, and fun in the music, and I think it’s pretty transparent. I’d go to their shows even if they weren’t my friends, so let me know what you all think!
