A band called “Up With The Joneses” Has been around for a number of years making their brand of party music synonomous with high energy fun times in “The Scenic City of the South.” I would call their style of music “Speed Funk”……..or something of that nature. Since ArtFRONT has been getting quite a few hits from people searching for “Up With The Joneses” of late, I thought I’d resurrect this article from last year and add some important updated information about Chattanooga's premier party band.

You can link up from wherever You are & listen to WUTC 88.1 FM Chattannooga, Tennessee. There's lots of N.P.R. programming here. WDVX, one of the last fortresses of Real Country music. Not the artificial diesel smoke flavored generic commercialism that's being pumped out of Nashville. & the “Live 365″ online broadcast by “RadioMike” out of New York City. It is well worth jumping through the hoops to sign up and listen to his unbroken playlist, which includes a lot of new artists I've never heard of with old traditionals mixed in. Once I figure out a fair way to judge which radio Stations deserve the accolades inherent in being included in ArtFRONT's Music Section I will set up a page which lists all of the best, most innovative, influential, groundbreaking, whatever….stations that people send me evidence of as being worthy.
