Billy Jonas is a musician who lives in Asheville NC and who I have known for many years.
We have collaborated on many projects. Most recently, I helped him produce his CD Get Real.
Billy has a great interest in homemade and recycled percussion and other instruments.
He plays all over the country, travelling around in his van.
You should definitely catch Billy if he passes through your neck of the woods. He also has a family oriented show that he performs so the kids can enjoy too.
