Come rock for a cause with the Freddy Jones Band.

With two #1 hits and several top tens, Chicago-based Freddy Jones Band has strummed its way to the forefront of the national Triple A Radio music scene. Founding members Marty Lloyd and Wayne Healy have stayed true to the breezy melodic lyrics and echo acoustic guitar they’re known for. Fun fact: No member of the band is actually named Freddy Jones, and the band has never definitively revealed the name’s source.
