LosJones: Tiny Desert Concert

Today we bring you a band that is steeped in Arizona’s landscapes: LosJones.

The band is both new and old. It was formerly called K-Sonic, but the name didn’t really capture who the band was. So last year the frontman, Steve Jones, put forward the new name, and it stuck.

As Jones puts it, LosJones is a nod to both his heritage and his band family. It’s all about roots and connecting, which is fitting for a band that sings ballads about Arizona.

Before social distancing was on anyone’s radar, The Show’s Lauren Gilger caught up with Jones to hear some of the band’s tunes and talk about their story at the Farm at South Mountain. She started off by asking him about his own artistic background, which extends beyond music.

If you’re in a band or know of one you’d like to hear on air, send us a note at  [email protected].
