Granite Falls, NC: This weekend, Jerry’s Bones continues to support the release of their 2014 “Movin’ On” album, with a special appearance at Granite Falls Brewing Company's “Memorial Day Smokin’ Jam and Pint Night.” The event will be held on Monday, May 26, at 47 Duke Street, in Granite Falls, NC. The event begins at 7 p.m. However, all are always welcome to come a little earlier for dinner, drinks, and a great Memorial Day atmosphere.
GFB—an already strong supporter of top-notch local music—has built its one-of-a-kind brewing reputation on also serving great food, providing great service via its wonderful staff, and by providing strong, philanthropic support for the local communities—also with selective consideration for supporting local commerce.
Jerry’s Bones is certainly one for the books! They are a unique, four-piece, soulful, roots-rock band, from Claremont NC. The group has been playing shows, non-stop—locally and all over the east coast—for the past two years.
Kendra and Cameron Matthews, who are accompanied by Edward Williams on Drums, and Elliot Noto on bass guitar, formed Jerry’s Bones, back in 2007. With their raw love for Classic Rock and Southern American Music, the married, lead guitar and vocalist-duo, along with the rest of this dynamic group, fills every show with a wide-span of adventure and emotion. This adventure and emotion is quite unique, in that it’s spiritually derived and driven from a lifetime search of friendship, love, truth, and freedom, which is quite transparent among the members of the group, and exists in every song written and performed.
The group’s featured hit, Movin’ On, strikes a positive chord with listeners, as it offers a sense of encouragement for them to “Keep on Keepin' on,” as best sung by vocalist and writer, Cameron Matthews, who is also thought to be one of Southeast’s leading guitarists, with his unheard of ability!
Kendra Matthews throws down a vocal repertoire that can only be described as emotional and ethereal, with her hit “One True Home,” which has received regular airplay on several Southeastern radio stations, including Gastonia’s local: 91.7 WSGE. With the addition of Ed Williams on drums, who has been playing since the age of three, and who's style has been compared to John Bonham and Mic Fleetwood (to name a couple), the solid beat and glue of Jerry's Bones came to be.
While adding Elliot Noto on bass, who is strongly rooted and influenced by some of the great rock bands from the seventies, such as Aerosmith and Kiss, Jerry’s Bones’ rhythm section continues to lay down a fearless foundation of groove-oriented skill and meticulous versatility, leaving audiences wondering what's coming next. Many have come out to say: “It's like a wave, with Jerry's Bones…”
At any rate, this Monday’s event will be a rare occasion and a unique way to experience two combined elements of exceptional, homegrown, and not-to-be-missed entertainment. For those who value such an occasion, it sounds like it will be definitely worth checking out—don’t miss out!
