This is an archive of the band profile for Jon Jones and the Beatniks Movement.

The five members of Jon Jones and the Beatniks Movement have come together since 2005 with a desire to make music that was far from the usual "telecaster twang" of today’s rock scene.

A tight and extremely inventive rhythm section (Stefan Beatnik and Bob Sof) forms the backbone of the band, followed by two heavy minded rock'n'roll guitarists (Giles Beatnik and Mikey Beatnik) and then fronted by a screaming long haired lout (Irish Joe) combines to make a sound which is the "musical equivalent to an epileptic fit".

With enough passion, drive and determination to kill an elephant, Jon Jones and the Beatniks Movement are slowly but surely climbing their way to recognition and raising more than a few eyebrows..
