Music Scene: The Jones/Adams Duo
It’s hard to believe that just two guys playing pop cover songs could attract a loyal following, but the Jones/Adams Duo have been crowd pleasers for five years.
And to mark their fifth year anniversary as a band, Warren Jones and Trevor Adams will play a show at 10 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at Rocky Mountain Pub, 539 Colorado Ave. Billy and The Dreamboats also will play that night.
The Jones/Adams Duo played its first show on March 31, 2006, at Planet Earth and 4 Directions Gallery, which is just across the street from the Rocky Mountain Pub.
Adams explained that their concept for the band was simple: “Just two guys playing covers but trying to do something new and fresh with the songs rather than just playing them like the originals,” he said.
In recent years, the duo has sophisticated its sound, playing more R&B and pop hits, rather than straight rock ‘n’ roll. Jones has traded his guitar for a keyboard. “The sound has more round than jagged edges,” Adams said.
There is no cover charge for the 21-and-older show. For information, call 245-0995.
