Getting Real: Billy Jonas in Concert This Wednesday

My good friend, Billy Jonas, is here in Dallas this week. He’s staying with us while he does a couple of shows in Plano schools early this week.

But, He’ll be playing a house concert Wednesday night at my friend’s Paul and Terrie’s house. If you never seen Billy, you won’t want to miss this show. If you have seen him, you know you’ll want to be there.


Billy is an amazing live performer, and an incredible spirit.

Here’s the email Paul Brown sent out about this show:

Date and Time stuff goes here — $12 donation at the door
3402 Summer Solstice, Rowlett, Texas (214-923-9551 — Paul)
(Magnolia Springs Housing Development)
Just east of Rowlett Road off of Miller Food and drink contributions welcome

Billy Jonas is a multi-layered, percussion-driven, tribal-rhythm, urban-harmony, and folk music maestro. Or as Billy describes it himself, “industrial re-percussion…junkadelic folk music”. Confused? You won’t be for long! He is also one of the cleverest writers we know, and a damned fine guitarist as well, besides just being an all-around nice guy! His songs will get under your skin, into your head, and straight to your heart, till you can’t help but sing (and bang) along…. Not to be missed!

Billy’s website too.
Hope to see you all there,
