Blues-Bikes-Cars Concert

On July 20th, 2019, despite a statewide heat advisory and power fluctuation problems the John-Paul Jones Group performed at the 1st Annual Blues-Bikes-Cars Concert in Ottumwa, Iowa.  Their brand of Heavy Blues must of  brought in the Heavy Weather, but the band played right to the eve of the storm.

The crew worked hard during the storm to pull down the gear and get it out of the storm we were all soaking wet and cold and thanks to a couple good Samaritans we were able to get most of the gear protected.

The cars were great as well here are few pictures of them.

The Vehicle Show was wonderful with 45 entries.  1st -3rd place was given for cars and trucks. We will get the full roster and awards up in the next few days.  We wanted to thank Scott Reeves of Reeves Hauling for the donation of the Trophies.

We want to give special thanks to Michael & Brittney Rhodes for managing the car show.  Brittney and Jp worked very close together to get things going, and for their first event they got it organized very well. Michael and his crew organized the parking and everything went together well despite it being record hot weather.

The band played great, the new stage show was awesome.  Walnut Hill took a bunch of great photos and we will put them up right here below:

Last but not least, Jp has dedicated his entire effort in memory of  Brian Reck, and the way Jp played it was like a man on fire, he made the guitar sing to his brother.  We know that Brian was in the skybox alongside, Shawn Jones , John-Paul Sr. and Randy Kapple looking down at him, the sky just could not contain their tears of joy.
