JON HERINGTON BAND
Saturday, Sep 1, 2012 - 8:00 pm, $18.00
Jon Herington is the veteran touring and recording guitarist for Steeley Dan, and the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the New York City based JON HERINGTON BAND. Jon's newest solo release (his follow-up to "Like So") is a collection of instantly classic sounding pop-rock songs called "shine (shine shine)," now available at cdbaby.com and on iTunes. Great support is supplied by a no-nonsense, take-care-of-business band including Dennis Espantman on bass and Frank Pagano on drums.
Jon's love for music surfaced in grade school, where he studied piano and saxophone. He later developed a passion for pop music and the electric guitar, and it wasn't long before he was writing songs and performing with his own band near his New Jersey Shore home, doing opening slots for local hero Bruce Springsteen. It was these performances that launched a thriving career that has continued ever since.
With his musical tastes and curiosity expanding, Jon undertook extensive musical studies in both classical and jazz composition and theory at Rutgers University, and private jazz guitar study, with the help of a National Endowment for the Arts grant, with the late, great jazz guitarist, Harry Leahey. Next came several years of study with the late Dennis Sandole, the acclaimed music teacher from Philadelphia who once taught the late greats James Moody and John Coltrane.
The Jon Herington Band
The JON HERINGTON BAND is currently the hard-hitting, stripped-down guitar, bass, drums power trio version of the band which is specifically designed for the club and theatre concert scene, with a blues/rock/pop vibe and an emphasis on the songs and the guitar playing. There is plenty of killer guitar for fans of Jon's playing, and the lyrics are often funny in addition to being clever and compelling. All three band members sing, providing a much bigger sound than a typical trio. After years of playing the supporting (though highlighted) role, Jon has stepped out on his own in a major way, deciding it's time to shine (shine shine).
The Jon Herington Band is Jon Herington (guitar, vocals), Dennis Espantman (bass, vocals) and Frank Pagano (drums, vocals).
