BACK TO BLACK - a 10th Anniversary celebration and revival of the entire AMY WINEHOUSE album starring soul sensation
Remember Jones + 15-piece orchestra

Remember Jones
Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy that bring audiences to another time and place. Collaboratively supported by a double-digit sized band centrally from Asbury Park, NJ where they have a stronghold on it's large, thriving music scene, he has packed popular venues such as THE STONE PONY, ASBURY LANES, THE SAINT, CONVENTION HALL and THE PARAMOUNT THEATRE. He has been awarded TOP VOCALIST in the Asbury Park Music Awards, directed and debuted as HEDWIG in HEDWIG IN THE ANGRY INCH for Asbury Park's first long-running theatrical production, and has produced, music directed, and supported many local acts, rock musicals, and touring bands (most recently a string of sold-out dates with Buster Poindexter).

The band's DEBUT ALBUM, "Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!", available via CDBaby, iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, and other outlets, was created after raising close to $19,000 through nearly 300 small donations via Indiegogo, and created in front of a live studio audience with a 25-piece band. It was released in May 2016 at Asbury Park's Convention Hall, the first independent local band to play this venue in many, many years. POPDOSE calls the album "...uncanny magic... remarkable vocalist... Remember Jones is heading for big things."

He fronts a tribute project "back to BACK TO BLACK", a recreation of the entire AMY WINEHOUSE album with an orchestra of 15-25 musicians that has SOLD-OUT 3 times in Asbury Park, as well as a tour of the show packing venues in Brooklyn, Detroit, Louisville, Nashville, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and more, including a sold-out show at LINCOLN HALL in Chicago that was streamed live by AUDIOTREE. He has SOLD-OUT a theater re-creation of JOE COCKER's MAD DOGS & ENGLISHMEN with a 20-piece band and was the first ever to present and sing R. KELLY's TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET LIVE alongside a 20-piece orchestra. His work with GRAMMY-nominated guitar legend and songwriter GARY LUCAS will lead to upcoming recordings of unreleased JEFF BUCKLEY material, following a successful string of dates recreating the entire GRACE album this past summer (Lucas co-wrote "Grace" and "Mojo Pin"). A recording session with Daytrotter will be released February 2017.
