Guitarist, Vocalist, Composer, Entertainer,
One of Jon's most memorable experiences came while on leave from the army a few years ago :-). An old friend of his, Peter Lucia, asked Jon if he'd like to help out on a couple of demos written by Tommy James.
They recorded late into the evening. The songs had no titles or lyrics; just instrumental tracks. Three months later those demos were released. The songs were "Mony, Mony" and "Do Something to Me". You may know the rest of the story. "Mony, Mony" went on to sell 5 million copies and became a Rock and Roll anthem.
Jonathn Ashe is not to be missed...
JONATHN ASHE is a masterful entertainer you could listen to for hours. Jon quickly establishes a connection with any audience with his engaging personality and one of the most distinguished voices of our time, whether he is playing soulful renditions from yesterday, a beautiful ballad or one of his many original creations like those on his album "Feels Like Spring" available on iTunes.
Jon is currently touring and writing songs with his longtime friend Tommy James (of Tommy James and the Shondells) for the upcoming movie "Me, The Mob, and The Music", based on the book of the same name written by Tommy.
During his career, Jon has also played with music partners like Joan Jett, Steven Van Zant, Felix Cavaliere, Alice Cooper, Ritchie Havens, Kool and the Gang, America, Exile, The Cowsills, Kate Taylor, Roger McGuinn, Gary US Bonds, Darlene Love, The Drifters, The Dupree's, Don & Juan, Fats Domino, Tony Orlando, Screamin' Jay Hawkins and other artists.
