Bio:

Hudson, Wisconsin native "Jambo" Joe Bones plays a mix of familiar pop-rock, classic country and Jimmy Buffett music at his solo-acoustic shows, and also occasionally performs "All-Buffett" Tribute shows. His evolving catalogue of original material is in the tradition of the singer/songwriter of the 70s, where songs are stories of real people, places and experiences, lying somewhere between the lines of fact and fiction.

Jambo says "I play wine bars, honky tonks, on patios and for Parrotheads, so there is a little something for everyone at my shows. And often by the end of the night, it's one big sing-along... just the way I like it."

Jambo's first CD of all-original material is currently available. Ordering info here.


Reviews:

"Jambo" Joe Bones looks and sounds like he stepped off a '70s Jimmy Buffett album cover with nothing but an acoustic guitar, a backpack full of lyric-based songs and an eye out for the nearest waterfront bar or roadside honky-tonk.

His set list reflects an appreciation for classic singer-songwriters in the acoustic vein and a willingness to go beyond the catalog of greatest hits. His wide-ranging catalog of Buffett covers includes the obligatory "Songs You Know By Heart," but also features dozens of lesser-known classics dating back to the days of vinyl.

Along the way, Jambo sprinkles in a liberal sampling of the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker, Todd Snider and Guy Clark; stirs in a little Warren Zevon and Barenaked Ladies; adds a dash of John Prine or Johnny Cash; and serves it all up with a side of well-crafted originals.

Although his "Joe Bones" persona conjures up images of a beachfront bar (which is not always easy to do in northern Wisconsin), he's actually much closer to what Steve Earle would call a "hardcore troubador." That's not a bad thing.

"Hey Joe, mind if I pull up a bar stool and just listen for a while?"

"As President of the St. MinneSomePlace in Paradise Parrot Head Club, I am always on the lookout for fresh Buffett-style live entertainment.

I received an e-mail from a guy named "Jambo" one day asking me to come and see him play at a beach party. Well, a few of us showed up, and there, sitting on a bar stool, is this person who might as well have jumped off the cover of the "White Sport Coat" album, playing "A Pirate Looks At 40."

We bellied up to the bar, ordered a round and sat there in awe listening to this 1970’s Buffett look-a-like play all our early Buffett favorites, and some of our new ones as well. Our Club has enjoyed his music for a couple of years now and many of us travel to his various gigs just to sit and listen and sometimes even get up and sing with him.

The repertoire of "Jambo" Joe Bones is ever-expanding. Not only are his covers fabulous, he has a growing list of original works. Whether you are looking for a throwback beach party or a quiet evening at a wine bar, Jambo has you covered.

Dear “ Jambo” Joe,
It was great to have you entertain our members at the 2008 Wisconsin Builders Association convention, Passport to Paradise. We appreciate you taking time from your busy schedule to travel to Eau Claire for this event. The members had fun watching and listening to your music. Nice job! Thanks so much for your help to make our convention so special for our members in attendance.
