The Jones Family Singers, consisting in part of five sisters, two brothers and their father, have been tearing up churches and festivals alike for over two decades with their gospel music. "Modern practitioners of a long musical tradition...infusing their joyful, reverent songs with elements of vintage soul and R&B" declares the Wall Street Journal. Indeed, fans of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and Vintage Trouble will find that "The three-generation gospel collective's high-energy performances are the living embodiment of the indelible connection between the black church and its rock and soul offspring," as the Austin Chronicle declares.

The Jones Family Singers received a standing ovation at Lincoln Center and showcased at New York City's globalFEST and The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC in 2015. A documentary about the band was released in 2015 too.
