Long before Granny and The Boys began playing soul songs at Showtime, Eddie Jones and The Young Bucks delivered their own idiosyncratic take on rhythm and blues 52 weeks a year at now departed clubs like Eugertha’s, Faces, and Gwen’s Majestic. Jones has been playing guitar and singing with various versions of the Bucks since the late 1960s, in addition to performing gospel pieces with a number of different ensembles and working as an occasional sideman for Bobby Womack and Peaches & Herb. Jones and the Bucks now play together infrequently, except for their annual January gig at Westminster Church.
