Desmond Jones
Desmond Jones is a five-piece funk/rock/jazz fusion band originally from East Lansing, MI currently living in Grand Rapids. With original music written to complement the group's sound as a whole, the music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, funky bass lines, groovy drumbeats, and smooth saxophone. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Charles Mingus, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high energy shows and is proud to say that each setlist and each song is different from show to show. They have played all over the Midwest, East Coast, in Colorado, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Look for them to hit the road in 2018 and catch a show in your city!
Coup De Grace.
Coup De Grace.
Combining the prodigious talents of Nick Reese, Doug Gallo, and David "Tig" Tigelman, the indie psych-rock trio with a strong jam influence out of Akron Ohio, Coup De Grace brings a final blow to your mind. Their music fuses the energy of powerful lyrics with upbeat vibes, killing the pain of the daily grind and leaving listeners in good spirits.
Coup De Grace is proud to announce their first album “Walk In Light” will be available March 3rd 2017 everywhere. Recorded and mastered at Central 8 Studios, “Walk In Light” is an ambitious first step for Coup De Grace. Leaving nothing on the table, the three piece strives to take the listener on a musical journey with hints of Radiohead, Tame Impala, as well as The Beatles. Blending strong song-writing with lush layers and an experimental flair, “Walk In Light” was engineered and mastered by Nathan Doutt, co-owner of Central 8 Studios.
Lead guitarist and vocalist Nick Reese has a lush history of playing in several Ohio bands, often filling in multiple roles where needed. He and, Coup De Grace drummer, Tig have been playing music together for over 10 years. Their story started in Akron, where they helped form the band The George Harrison Ford Explorers. Nick later joined up with and went on tour with Simeon Soul Charger, filling in on everything from keys to guitar. All the while, Tig continued to work on side projects with Nick. Simeon eventually moved to Germany to continue their musical growth. Nick Reese then joined the high energy progressive jam rock group Aliver Hall, touring out to Colorado multiple times and playing countless festivals.
In December of 2015, Nick chose to focus his energy on songwriting and composition, so he and Tig rejoined to form the group Coup De Grace. They also joined forces with bassist Doug Gallo.
Coup De Grace's debut album "Walk In Light" is out now and streaming on Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes and more.
