Guitarist, Vocalist, Composer, Entertainer and Band Leader
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 headed over to Bell Sound NYC and 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 writing songs with his longtime friend Tommy James (of Tommy James and the Shondell's) for the upcoming motion picture "Me, The Mob, and The Music", based on the book of the same name written by Tommy James.
During his career, Jon has worked and toured with Tommy James and 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 many more!
