Everyone has their Jon Blondell story and every story ends the same: “That guy is a monster!” Trombonist and bassist Blondell has performed with everyone—as the house player at Antone’s Nightclub, he played with Buddy Guy, Jimmy Page, U2, Carlos Santana, Jimmy Vaughn, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Kim Wilson, Pinetop Perkins, LouAnn Barton, Marcia Ball, Charlie Sexton, and all the Austin blues family. At the same time, he was playing with local jazz artists as well as greats like Chet Baker, Branford Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, Joe Henderson, Carl Fontana, Bill Watrous, and others. He later crossed over into the country and rock and roll world and has had the honor of working with Willie Nelson, George Strait, Delbert McClinton, Ray Price, Asleep at the Wheel, and Dale Watson. Blondell’s album credits read like a music hall of fame roster. It’s doubtful a day goes by that you don’t hear Blondell’s talents on someone’s hit single or radio and television commercials.
Tonight, the irrepressible Blondell performs with one of the country's top neurosurgeons and trumpet player Dr. Jim Rose. They’re a fantastic duo.
