General Jones first appeared on the San Francisco music scene in February of 2007. They have vigorous energy, timeless style that is impossible not to enjoy. Drummer Gary Jones has been playing with Shark since 2005 - back when this music was played under the group name 'Eighteen Wheeler' in the bosom of the magnificent Rocky Mountains, Boulder, CO. His impeccable meter and humble style are the heartbeat of this group. Zach 'Z-Money' Sharpe has been playing the Bass guitar since the beginning of time; he carries the infectious air of funk/blues/soul style bass that will have you unable to resist the dance floor. Scott Portner lays down the meanest blues harpoon North, South, East and West of Richmond. He is a hot ticket in The Bay, appearing with many different acts; he doesn't play in every General Jones show, but you'll hate to miss him when he does. General Jones is lead by singer/guitarist Matthew 'Shark' Shartsis. Mr. Shartsis (known most commonly as 'Shark') wrote --and continues to write -- the music of this Bay Area group. The idea of General Jones (a name spawn from Gary Jones' canine companion, General) is based on the theory that there is no limit to peoples tastes; everyone has a General Jones. As the band matures, you will find that their style is not limited to blues or rock or bluegrass - it is a GENERAL JONES...
