By on September 12, 2011
Our 6th season of the Grand Ole Echo is winding up, and you’ve got 1 last chance to catch us for a free, Sunday show SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18TH WE’LL BE CELEBRATING WITH A “GRAM JAM”!!!

Led by the father/son team of Jesse and Greg Harris, The Palamino Riders will be the house band. Other band members include Jay Dee Maness, Mike Baker and Don Heffington. Guest Gram-jammers are Brennen Leigh, Susan James, Brian Whelan, Leslie Stevens, Dan Janisch and David Serby. This show will be at our regular time from 5:30-9:00 pm

The traditions of California Country music run through the veins of guitarist and singer songwriter Jesse Jay Harris. Jesse’s musical traditions run deep, his father Greg Harris fronted the Flying Burrito Brothers for years after Gram Parson’s untimely death. Greg worked with many influential musicians during these years including Garth Hudson and Rick Danko of The Band, Roger McGuinn of the Byrds, Sneaky Pete Kleinow of the Burritos and many others.

The influence of hanging around at these shows as a kid is still with Jesse and provides a strong foundation from with to draw, which is why his first solo release is aptly titled “Solid Ground” Jesse has played stages large and small in every corner of the state and elsewhere. The traditions of bluegrass, country, rock, blues, soul, and jazz have always been a part of Jesse’s years of composing, playing, and producing. Jesse is currently focused on writing and producing his own brand of telecaster driven country rock. Currently residing in Los Angeles after a stint in San Francisco, California is still Jesse’s playground, driving up and down the state to play shows as well as tours in Europe and elsewhere.

JayDee Maness played on Gram Parson’s records, was in the ISB band, he was a Buckaroo, and was Vince Gills’ steel player for years. A member of the Steel Guitar Hall Of Fame, a living legend, and and all around great guy. Check out his website
