The John Paul Jones Group formed at the end of December 1998 leading into January 1999 from the remnants of the progressive rock band Jp’s Eternia.  Under John-Paul “Jp” Jones leadership, the John-Paul Jones Group has quickly established itself as one of southeastern Iowa's most popular heavy blues acts.

The band is rapidly gaining regional and national recognition. The group’s excellent musicianship, powerful stage presence, and a remarkable stage show, sparks audience interaction/participation integrated throughout the shows.    

First and foremost, the John-Paul Jones Group is talented. These musicians are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds, ranging from big band jazz and progressive metal to blues and rock. The line-up is John-Paul “Jp” Jones on guitar and vocals, Steven Jones on drums, Jesse Price and Sally Henry sharing bass duties. 

 The John-Paul Jones Group covers heavy blues material from all eras along with original material written by members of the group. The group invokes references to Rory Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix, and Robin Trower among others…  Their stage show consists of a colorful and energetic presentation along with great musical performances—the way heavy blues is supposed to be played. The John-Paul Jones Group has received rave reviews from their audiences. 

 The band and its members have been the recipients of many awards including best heavy blues band, Top 100 on Number One Music Blues Charts, Top 100 Reverbnation Blues Charts, 2018 Iowa Blues Challenge finalist,.   The group is affiliated with the American Federation of Musicians, Black Rock Coalition, International Blues Society, and the Southeastern Iowa Blues Society.
