THE JON HERINGTON BAND is currently the hard-hitting, stripped-down power trio, with a blues/rock/pop “roadhouse” vibe. There is plenty of killer guitar for fans of Jon's playing, though never at the expense of the songwriting which remains focused, thoughtful and fun. All three band members sing, providing a much bigger sound than a typical trio. Jon has often spoken of the first three albums he bought as a youngster: Cream's “Disraeli Gears;” Hendrix’s “Are You Experienced;” and the Beatles’ “White Album;” iconic recordings that continue to influence his sound and approach. The undeniable chemistry of THE JON HERINGTON BAND has been built on a lifetime of collaboration with bandmates Dennis Espantman (bass, vocals) and Frank Pagano (drums, vocals) and is clearly evident in their catalog of songs. After years of playing the supporting (though highlighted) role, Jon steps forward with his trio as a world class guitar player with chops, taste, and much to say.
