From its roots as a colonial seaport, Alexandria, Virginia has been a melting pot of cultures and music. Jones Point fuses this broad cross-section of American musical influences into an organic, high-energy sound that ranges from bluegrass to Go-Go, with many musical genres in between. With the care of artisan craftsmen, Jones Point delivers original arrangements and well-rehearsed three-part harmonies.
Jones Point (JP) is named after the National Park that extends into the Potomac River at the southeastern tip of the City of Alexandria. On the riverbank sits the last remaining riverine lighthouse in the Commonwealth of Virginia. During the 19th-century, the Jones Point lighthouse shined its light on locals and visitors alike as they approached the city.
Jones Point was started by experienced musicians — all Alexandria natives — with eclectic musical influences. The style of Americana they deliver at music venues and private parties has entertained long-time friends and newcomers with musical alchemy that, on occasion, has approached the limits of local noise ordinances.
