“Rev Jones has infused some of the biggest names in hard rock with his
incredible energy and musicality.” BassPlayer.com
For more than three decades, Rev Jones has been one of the most unique and sought-after
bassists/vocalists in hard rock. And for his legions of fans worldwide, Bakwash is his riff-blasting,
face-melting, long-awaited solo debut album.
Since first picking up a bass guitar in 1985 – and utilizing what BassPlayer.com calls “an array of
techniques, both conventional and otherwise” – this native son of Oklahoma’s Tornado Alley has
recorded and toured with headliners that include Steelheart, Mountain, Michael Schenker Group,
Fuel, Leslie West, Paul Gilbert (of Mr. Big), Jeff Martin (of Racer X) and George Lynch, as well as
top indie shredders like Blasted To Static, Texas Hippie Coalition, Kottak, Black Symphony. and
Forte. “Whichever band he may share the stage with,” says Sugarbuzz Magazine, “Rev Jones will
be the guy on stage who will give the audience an unforgettable visual and musical experience.”
Known for his distinctive two-handed tapping style and over-the-neck fingering technique – as well
as his on-stage madman performance style – Jones has also worked with Grammy winning
producers Mike ‘Metal’ Goldberg (Johnny Winter, Doro Pesch) and Jim Gaines (Santana, Stevie
Ray Vaughn), designed a custom bass for Dean Guitars, and produced the popular instructional
video "Rev Jones Bass Line".
When Rev is not recording/performing as a bass player, he tours with George Thorogood & The
Destroyers as Thorogood’s exclusive guitar tech. “I have the best second job in music,” Rev says.
“I get paid to hang out with, work with and watch one of the baddest entertainers ever to step on
stage.” Rev also plays off- stage rhythm guitar on several of the band’s songs.
