Johnny Jones

Longtime Skeletone, friend, and Trumpet player Johnny Jones passed away in June. John played trumpet with Raider Eddie and the Skeletones and many other New England Live Music groups for many years. Johnny performed professionally for most of his life.

In addition to preforming with Raider Eddie and the Skeletones he also performed with Southside Rhythm & Blues, Buddy Young Orchestra, Ed Williams Big Band, Stormwatch, Cotton Mouth, Raider Eddie and the Skeletones, VJC Big Band (VT), Joe V Laltin Big Band (MA), Keene Jazz Orchestra (NH), and The No Sax Trumpet Quartet.

Johnny loved motorcycles, and boating. He enjoyed playing the trumpet, camping, having cookouts, spontaneous road trips, and just hanging out with his family.

In honor and memory of John’s love for music, we request that you play a song by Tower of Power, plant a peony bush in your yard and/or make a contribution to:
