The crowd begins to form once again around the main stage during this year’s ninth Dayton Sideshow at the Yellow Cab  Building, located on 4th Street this past May.  It was the second and last day of the yearly art event, and already those  who have been in attendance have observed some of the unlimited talent of the artists that reside in the Dayton  community.  Throughout the weekend, over 40 bands and artists will have performed on the three stages.

National recording artist, Jiggley Jones’, new EP, “…a mountain, a struggle, a tunnel, a light …”, is a standout alternative country album filled with beautiful melodies and harmonies, strong lyrics, and skillful arrangements.  Jones’ smooth and ethereal vocals are definitely a signature in his music.  Like many singer-songwriters, his lyrics address the many challenges and experiences he has had. The music speaks for itself with rich acoustic guitar work at its core, accented and built up perfectly by the occasional piano, electric guitar, or banjo highlight.  Hot tracks on the album include “Walk On Me” and “Early Morning Light”!  Buy it today on iTunes or click one of the links below!
