We Three Kings
When Tunafish Jones takes center stage the crowd takes notice. With it's stellar horn section demanding attention from their very first note to their last, there's not a soul in the place that forgets the name TUNA. Dressed in a black suit,tie,high top Converse tennis shoes,and her favorite sunglasses of the day, the petite lead vocalist Mars McCracken takes her fans breath away the minute they hear her powerful voice. With hands flailing and feet moving, her constant movements provide a unique visual performance that is only outdone by her passionate, throat grabbing vocals. Whether this band is playing the blues, rhythm and blues, jazzy blues, or soul, they keep their audience in a trance. Literally thousands of fans turn out every year to experience the musical expertise of Tunafish Jones. They have sold out seven CDs in the last ten years and no matter what they're performing, original tunes written by Mars and arranged by guitarist and keyboard player Bruce McCracken, or some creative version of a quirky cover, their fans keep coming back for more. Their constant fan mail gives the best description of Tunafish Jones. "I came to hear you last week. You were beautiful. What soul, what fun you have. What a gorgeous sound you make. The whole place was alive with your music, it was perfect. Thank you for all that you bring and I will look forward to hearing you again." "You are my favorite band and I love to listen to your music. Yours is a style to be envied." This year, after constant requests from fans, Tunafish Jones Trio has compiled an eclectic mix of jazzy, traditional Christmas songs plus one very special original composition. Featuring the soothing, sensitive vocal side of Mars McCracken, the inventive saxophone work of Frank Lightell and the creative synthesizer performances of Bruce McRacken, these holiday tunes will bring comfort and joy throughout the season and for years to come.
