Product Notes

Bongo Jones - the greatest band you never heard of 'Why aren't these guys famous?' - most often heard comment at a Bongo Jones show Bongo Jones are not pretty. They don't wear the right clothes. They don't appeal to a prescribed demographic and they don't care. Never have. If you're looking for pretty boys playing plastic pop, a band that teenage girls will hang pictures of in their lockers, you better look somewhere else. Bongo Jones ain't it... ...but if you want a band that will make your head spin and your ass shake, that creates and cares for their songs like they were children, and then gleefully beats them silly on stage, a band that believes with every fiber of their being that music can change the world (or at least make it smell better for a little while), then welcome to the world of Bongo Jones. They've been waiting for you. 'Do everything. Be everything. Fear nothing.' - Buzzy, on the philosophy of Bongo Jones Bongo Jones believes in three things: writing great songs, playing them as often and as loudly as they can, and having as much fun as humanly possible while they do it. The overiding standard by which they judge their music is simple: never be boring. The result is that Bongo Jones comes across like one of those carefully assembled comp CDs your weirdo friend from high school used to make for you. Every song was different but every song rocked. That's Bongo Jones. Their latest album, Hook To The Head, is a prime example of the band's schizophrenic attitude toward their craft. Throughout the 18 song release the band sings about stalkers and nazis, drunks and yuppies, high school murder and middle class apathy. Funk, punk, pop, ska, metal, and old school rap all find a place in their music, sometimes all in one song. And every song rocks. 'You guys are the greatest band I ever saw.' - Trevor, age 11 Bongo Jones was formed when Buzzy (chief songwriter, spiritual leader, bad ass drummer) and Rob (singer, saxophone, funky ass motherf***er) decided that no band they were in would ever let them do everything they wanted so they'd better start their own. They stole Frankie (big ass monster bass) and Stef (sweet ass guitar) from the cover bands they were in, and thus saved their souls from eternal damnation. Bongo Jones is four friends who have found their way. They do not have a bus with Bongo Jones painted on the side. They do not date starlets and strippers and eat at Nobu - these are not the way. The way is the song. The way is the groove. The way, quite simply, is to play. For booking or other matters concerning Bongo Jones, call chris at 609-273-5214 or check out bongojones.net.
