Welcome to Crispy Jones

Hawaiian-Punkrock that makes you tap your toes and sing along

Crispy Jones started 2009 as a Rockabilly-Trio but are a Ukuleleband since a few years now. Crispy plays as an One-Man-Band or with other musicians from his area. They played shows with Dick Dale, Hugh Cornwell (Stranglers), The Peacocks and many more. From big Festivals with The Creepshow, Buster Shuffle or Agnostic Front, to busking or even garden party gigs. His parents brought him his first Ukulele from Hawaii and he immediately fell in love with the Ukulele. He is supported by Baton Rouge Ukuleles, Logjam Stompboxes, Farmer Foot Drums and Pyramid Strings.

Information

Uke Magazine (UK) says:
"... unique and characteristic foot tapping style."

Marshall Lytle (Bassist Bill Haley & His Comets):
“I really enjoyed the [Crispy Jones] CD … good work.”

Dr. Dick (NL): "... sounds like good hawaiian punkrock.“

Ukulele Charity Sampler @ Uke Planet

Here's a great article from UKE PLANET about our charity ukulele sampler:

"... it’s a tidy collection of tracks too, varied in styles with a well orchestrated track order. ..."

"One man band, Ramones fan and one slice of a musical trio, Crispy Jones has extended his repertoire further still by putting together a uke based sampler album to raise money for Médecins sans Frontières and UNO-Fluechtlingshilfe
Charity compilations are a great thing ..."

"... my personal foot tapping choice being Out Of Luck (featuring second vocalist Caro) with a reggae chop verse, rap influenced vocal and a simple but really tasty drum track. ..."
