Houston Jones. Joe Craven, Stevie Coyle Acoustic Mayhem
Houston Jones is a San Francisco Bay Area based high-octane Americana quintet. Formed in 2001, the band performs a strong original repertoire that ranges from bluegrass and folk to blues and gospel. Houston Jones features Travis Jones (lead vocal, rhythm guitar), Glenn Houston (lead acoustic and electric guitar), Henry Salvia (keyboard and accordion), Chris Kee (standup bass, cello and acoustic guitar), and Peter Tucker (drums and percussion).
For almost 17 years, Joe Craven was the highly respected multi-instrumentalist with the David Grisman Quintet. Joe held a challenging post as Grisman's percussionist, fiddler and sometimes swatting backbeats and trading licks on mandolin next to Grisman and at times all within one tune - and Joe enjoyed the workout.
