Sean Jones -Dana School of Music Alumnus

I don't know exactly why Sean Jones popped into my mind this morning but he did. I was drinking my coffee as usual and reading the daily blogs - and there he was playing in my mind's eye. I went in search of a video to share with you. I hope you enjoy it. The first time I met Sean Jones was when he played at a bookstore that I co-owned. He blew me away. Some of you may know the bookstore because Chris Barzack, another local talent made it famous in his book One for Sorrow If you've never been there I highly recommend the experience. The name of the store is Dorian Books. The store is located on Youngstown's northside on Elm Street. When you go make sure you tell Jack that I sent you. Anyway, when I first heard Sean I think he must have been about nineteen or twenty years old. Since then he has traveled far and wide playing awesome music. Occasionally, he has dropped in at various clubs in town, usually around the holidays, but I haven't heard tell of him being around lately, except this morning in my head, so hit the button to demand that he make a visit home. (see side bar).

Wow, he's good. I just demanded. ;-)

How many demands would he need to get him here?
