Col Jones & Guilty (The Joe Cocker Tribute Band)
Whether performing with his own blues band Fat Mouse or as Joe Cocker tribute, Col always delivers a polished performance. Originally from London, he was around in the hay day of the pub rock scene which gave birth to such influential artists as Dr Feelgood, Dire Straits, Ian Drury and the Blockheads and Micky Jupp’s Legend. Col has either appeared on the same bill or played with some of these artists around various venues in the UK. Starting his musical career as a drummer but also has appeared as front man and singer for various bands of his own. His knowledge of musical styles and trends is peerless and can be relied on to perform songs from most of the decades. His love is blues, early swing and jazz but is also capable of performing more contemporary artists on request.
Typical Joe Cocker songs:
Unchain My Heart
With A Little Help From My Friends
Have A Little Faith
She Came In Through The Bathroom Window
You Are So Beautiful
And many more.
