Jessica Jones’ Women’s Empowerment Tour: 1904 Music Hall in Jacksonville
The force of nature known as Jessica Jones returned to Florida for the third time this year, this time with three shows presented by Get Laws’t Entertainment (Jacksonville, Winter Park & Boca Raton) and a New Year’s Eve Extravaganza in St. Petersburg presented by Juanjamon. She had compiled a spectacular band and worked to have female-fronted local bands open two of the three Get Laws’t shows as part of this Women’s Empowerment Tour.
The first stop was at 1904 Music Hall in Jacksonville on December 27, For this evening, Jones, working with Tom Laws, Clint McLellan, and Megan Baker (the queen of this run along with Jones), chose Alchematic to open the show, featuring Chelsey Michelle on vocals.
The band Jones had put together was stellar, with: D.J. Williams (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe), guitar; Juanjamon (CopE), keyboards, tenor sax, vocals; Shane Platten (Melody Trucks Band), bass, vocals; Ben Atkind (Goose), drums; and Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident), percussion. And a late addition to the band was Jeff Lloyd (The Heavy Pets) on guitar. Those are all heavy hitters.
Guest for the night included: Melody Trucks (Melody Trucks Band), vocals; and Adam Kenneway (Bonnie Blue, Danka), bass.
