Is a duo with Shauna Jones and Grant Simpson who play the music of the 20s, 30s, and 40s with a range from ragtime, swing, jazz, blues, vaudeville and cabaret.
Shauna and Grant have worked together in a wide variety of shows over the years beginning when they were in the cast of the Frantic Follies Vaudeville Show together for a few years. When not on stage they took to the road performing on VIA Rail across Canada, House Concerts, Cabaret Stages, Music Festivals and various venues from Cafes to Restaurants.
Their pandemic series where they released a new song every day ended up going for 188 days with as many different songs. It was a way that the duo used to get through the pandemic lockdowns and resulted in a hugely expansive repertoire. That series is available @jonesyandsimpson on Facebook.
Jonesy and Simpson regularly perform in Winnipeg and surrounding areas and both performers are active theatre professionals – Shauna as a Scenic Designer and Painter and Grant as a Composer, Lyricist and Musical Director.
Both Shauna and Grant are currently working on the production “Dogtown: the Musical” which will be released at the Yukon Arts Centre Sept 6-10th, 2022. More about Dogtown here.
