Watch & Listen: Holiday Dance Party w/ Devan Jones & The Uptown Stomp

When: Friday, December 14th, 6pm-8:30pm

Now based in Austin, Texas, Devan Jones is a native of Kingston, Tennessee. He formed The Uptown Stomp in 2013 with the 6-piece format of drums, upright bass, piano, tenor/baritone saxophone, trumpet, and guitar/vocals. The personnel varied somewhat, but it always featured some of Knoxville’s top musicians, including himself on guitar and vocals.  

In just a couple of years, Devan Jones & The Uptown Stomp were hitting their stride and growing in popularity, and then Devan moved to Austin in 2015 and formed an Austin version of The Uptown Stomp. Fortunately, he comes back home at least a couple times a year, and everyone is happy that he’s back at Alive After 5 to perform with the Knoxville Uptown Stomp.
