Known widely throughout the Detroit Metro area as the host of WDET's Saturday morning blues show, "Blues From the Lowlands," Robert Jones is currently the city's only one-man blues band. Although other area artists perform solo on occasion, Jones is the only one to adhere strictly to that format – and no one can touch him. Combining a wonderful sense of humor with an exceptionally broad knowledge of blues history and an entertaining storytelling style that both rivals and compliments his musical abilities, Jones carries the old-style Mississippi front porch Delta tradition to an entirely new level.
