D. C. Malone and the Jones

DC Malone is a world class entertainer. Professional musician since 16 and headlining comedian for 35 years he has the talent and experience that shows in his work.

Over the years DC has jammed with or opened for Mitch Ryder, Bo Diddley, Greg Allman, Pablo Cruise, the Talking heads, and Spirit. As far as comedy goes, he’s worked with Tim Allen, Dave Letterman. Drew Carey, and toured Europe with Jango Edwards and the Friends Roadshow just to name a few. He also spends a great deal of time entertaining the troops overseas.

His band the Jones has been playing together for eight years. Comprised of incredibly talented and versatile musicians, they have a gift for taking great classic rock and blues, not to mention classic country and swing, and making it their own. Easing in and out of musical genres, they weave an amazing tapestry in every set.

Their song list is one of the most eclectic of any cover band playing today. Bringing great songs long buried back to life, and playing a set list not burdened with the same songs you hear time and time again in nightclubs.

Everyone in the band has been playing for over thirty years, and loves what they do. They still enjoy playing and performing for enthusiastic crowds, or even just sitting around jamming for themselves or sharing with other musicians, it never grows tiresome.

The band consists of:

Dale Turnbull, Bass guitar. They call him the Doctor, Dale has been playing bass in bands since the late 60’s and is the most sought after fill in and session player in Portland. He is a pocket player and his playing is perfection.

Mike Zilis, keyboards. Mike's years of playing really show his influences and his love of New Orleans blues and funk, (particularly Dr. John and Little Feat), add spice to the rhythm section. This, topped by his blazing solos show that Mike was a great find.

James Mason, lead guitar. DC met James at an open mic jam and was immediately drawn to his love of blues, and soulful lead solos. James is a chameleon and fits perfectly into any genre. A true renaissance man.

Derek Doggett, lead guitar. Derek is the badboy of the band. Raised on metal bands but inspired by so much more. He is awesome to see and hear, never failing to garner a standing ovation for one or more solos during the course of the evening.

Jason “Boom Boom” Moore, drums. Jason lays the groundwork for every song with his impeccable rhythm. Anchoring many bands over the years, his musical tastes are wide, and that has really broadened his scope of understanding percussion. Jason not only plays trap but hand drums and rhythm toys.

If you want a great night of good music, high energy and downright fun, DC Malone and The Jones is the perfect band for your club or eventFor a really special night, think about adding a comedy show to really give your patrons something to remember!
