The Jones Family Singers

The Jones Family Singers

Vintage Soul-Infused Gospel

In the Star Tribune: "From the refinery mecca of Baytown, Texas, the Jones Family Singers come off like the spiritual answer to an oil well blowout. A true family band — five sisters, two brothers and their father — they were working the Gulf Coast gospel music circuit when Austin music critic Michael Corcoran and Spoon drummer Jim Eno helped bring them to the attention of South by Southwest festival goers and other hip tastemakers. Over the past two years, they’ve played everywhere from Lincoln Center to the Playboy Jazz Festival to (just last week) Russia. They’re now the subjects of an inspiring new documentary, “The Jones Family Will Make a Way,” and just issued a soul-rocking live album, “Live From Mt. Zion.” Their Twin Cities debut comes between stops at the Newport and Winnipeg folk festivals." (7 p.m. Thu., Dakota Jazz Club, $30.) Riemenschneider

The Jones Family Singers, consisting in part of five sisters, two brothers and their father, have been tearing up churches...
