The Bob Jones Trio brings together three lifelong musicians with varied backgrounds in jazz, blues, R&B, jazz-fusion and progressive rock. The band is comprised of Bob Jones on keys and lead vocals, Marty Holland on bass and vocals and Guyle Taber on drums. Bob Jones, a world traveling jazz and blues artist, has played with renowned acts such as BB Coleman, Little Joe Blue, Chick Willis, and has opened up for James Brown, Wilson Pickett and War among others. Bassist-composer-producer Martin Holland, whose own music has been heard worldwide, has been associated with artists such as Melvin Seals, Stanley Turrentine, Joe Higgs, Buzzy Linhart, Henry Kaiser, Steve Kimock, Paul McCandleless, Warren Haynes, Kim Westin, Lenny Williams, Rodney Franklin and countless others in his nearly 40 years of work from performance to studio. Guyle Taber, a drummer for over 35 years, started early on as a snare drummer in drum & bugle corps, then on to numerous original material rock bands, fusion, progressive and techno style ensembles in addition to touring the northern CA, Oregon and Nevada areas as part of various cover bands playing dance club music.
Fun fact: The Bob Jones Trio had its start back in 1986 when Bob and Guyle played together in the initial version of the band."
