Whether it’s in the studio or on stage, Chris Jones and The Night Drivers are making some of the most distinctively elegant yet driving music to be heard anywhere today, and they’re delivering it with a unique blend of dry wit, emotional authenticity, and broad humor that’s won the loyalty of a growing number of fans across the country.
The Night Drivers feature four distinct personalities who bring a multitude of talents to each performance: Chris Jones, who hosts Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction, bassist Jon Weisberger, who co-hosts Del McCoury’s Sirius XM show, Mark Stoffel on mandolin, and the group’s newest member, Gina Clowes, on banjo.
The band is also becoming known as a songwriter’s bluegrass band, with Weisberger and Jones now co-writing many of the band’s current songs, and all four members contributing material.
In total, Chris and the band members have won eight IBMA awards. Steve Martin referred to the Night Drivers as “… some of the best players in bluegrass! Chris Jones’ voice is there with the great masters.”
