A sonic celebration of all things musical!

It’s a musical conversa­tion … a sonic celebration … a splendiferous gath­ering of old and young, because at a Billy Jonas show, the ensemble is … YOU! Billy Jonas’ music is percussion-based using “found objects” (buckets, broom handles, bottles, key chains and more) along with traditional instruments. But on any given day, the specific nature of this unforgettable neo-tribal hoote­nanny is determined and shaped by the audience. He tailors both his song selection and presentation to suit the vibe of each audience, so every Billy Jonas concert is a unique experience. The big-tent festival quality of Billy’s music facilitates community while fostering inspiration, and most importantly, FUN. Billy Jonas has shared stages with many artists, including Peter Yarrow, Keb’ Mo’, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea, Justin Bieber, Richard Thompson and Pete Seeger. His concerts are a magical mix of stagecraft and wholesome, open-ended, anything-can-happen spontaneity. His CD, What Kind of Cat are You?!, earned multiple awards including a First Place/Gold from the American Federation of Independent Musicians and a Parent’s Choice Gold. Billy’s videos have garnered critical acclaim, including Parents Choice Awards and a New York Times “Best” listing.
