Jon Stickley Trio At Clementines
I have always been impressed with the Jon Stickley Trio from first seeing them at Rooster Walk, two years ago. Playing in my home town, I had to make the show and headed downtown Harrisonburg to Clementines. While the house wasn’t packed, many of the local musicians showed up for the show. The Trios sounds varies from Hard Rock, Folk and Bluegrass to even Surf-type music. A single concertgoer flailed, back and forth, on the dance floor like some earthen, stringless marionette. Clementines is a small bar venue but has some great ambiance with artistic surroundings and a trio with no bass, this band definitely brings a lot of sound.
Jon Stickley Trio uses erupting climaxes and soft landings that lead into Celtic influences that are undeniable. Jenny oozes a Celtic aura that is irresistible while, Jon takes his guitar sounds on the razors edge; beyond what Folk-Celtic music can be. An evolution of this music is taking place and I think, Jon Stickley Trio is at the center of one of these evolving, shifting musical breakers. Check them out on tour near you!
