Private Jones

Private Jones is a Las Vegas based power/pop, guitar driven, indie rock band, featuring singer/songwriter David Alderson on guitar and lead vocals, Michael Dunigan on bass and backing vocals, Tony Breit on piano/keys and backing vocals, and Jim Norris on Drums and backing vocals. David writes, records, performs, and produces Private Jones songs in his home studio dubbed Sunspot Studio. Private Jones, in studio also works with as many different, and talented musicians as possible, with guest’s stopping by Sunspot Studio to jam and record, or via the internet using the exciting tools afforded modern musicians thru internet file share. With a little help from some good friends, the band plans to make each Private Jones recording something special.

Private Jones draws influences from many sources beginning first, and for most with the songwriting team of Lennon/McCartney of The Beatles, as well as their solo work. Other important influences, and inspiration comes from many classic rock sources including Queen ( for their sheer genius, and willingness to move in multiple directions ), Kiss, Cheap Trick, David Bowie, Tom Petty, T- Rex, Van Halen, Def Leppard, The Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin. David’s songwriting for Private Jones is also inspired by other more modern artists, including The White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather ( anything by Jack White III ), Nirvana, The Stereophonics, STP, Collective Soul, and Lenny Kravitz. And last, but certainly not least, Private Jones has the blues at heart. Son House, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and BB King, and a host of others, all hold a special place in David’s heart as a songwriter.

Private Jones songs are populated with many themes, stories, and characters, starting simply with the universal theme of love. The great Sir Paul McCartney once asked in Silly Love Songs, “What’s wrong with that?” to which David says, “absolutely nothing.” David also touches often on sex, individual liberty, history, and various works of literature that have touched him in life. But for the most part, Private Jones songs are filled with love, as it relates to relationships between lovers, family, people both real, and imagined, and our love for, and belief in Jesus Christ.

When Private Jones gets out of the studio, and onto a stage for a live show, a high energy, heart pounding, explosive, rockfest is an absolute guarantee. The Private Jones concert features songs pulled from an ever expanding song catalog, and loads of "covers" we think are cool performed with every once of heart, soul, and sweat the band has, leaving everything there on the stage, and in your memories. Private Jones live features David Alderson on guitar, and lead vocals, Tony Breit on keys and vocals, Artie Lemos on lead guitar and backing vocals, and Jim Norris on drums.

For those that wish to have a more intimate, and up close Private Jones experience, an acoustic performance may be the ticket. Private Jones also performs acoustically in clubs, bookstores, or in a House Concert setting, often showcasing new, and less exposed material, as well as a well placed cover to the audience. These shows are a great way for there band, and friends of Private Jones to meet in person, chat, and get to know each other.

Private Jones values each, and every friend out here in the rock n roll world, and hopes to continue to share the music, and friendship with anyone that wants to come along for the ride. There are infinite places to find music of your life’s soundtrack, so Private Jones hope’s you find some of your favorites right here in our little corner of the rock world.
