Blues Talent, Dennis Jones, Entertains at Decatur Celebration

Dennis Jones
Decatur, IL – Illinois largest free family street festival, Decatur Celebration, celebrates 24 years of entertaining Central Illinois on August 7, 8, and 9. Recognized as one of the top 100 events in North America, this national event attracts approximately 300,000 people each year to a twenty-two city block area of downtown Decatur, Illinois.

This year, the festival presents soulful blues star, Dennis Jones on Sunday, August 9th at 2:15 pm, 4:15 pm, and 7:00 pm, on the North Street Stage. Dennis started the Dennis Jones Band in the mid 90s while continuing with other musical opportunities on the side. Dennis had the distinct pleasure of performing with Zac Harmon when he won the 2004 International Blues Challenge Championship. Over the years, Dennis has sat in with such artists as Guitar Shorty, Kenny Neal, Deborah Coleman, Chris Duarte and many more. In 2004, Dennis released his debut CD “Falling Up” (Blue Rock Records) produced by Brian O’Neal of the BusBoys. “Falling Up” consists of blues, blues rock and incorporates the essence of country, R & B and jazz. This CD was well received by music critics, radio and fans alike. Memphis’ WEVL FM 90 called “Falling Up”, “one of the best albums we’ve heard in years”. A sample of Jones’ music is on his website at www.dennisjonescentral.com.
