Flavor Celebrates the Fourth Anniversary of Remember Jones; Purchases Entered in Drawing to Win Tickets to 11/23 at The Stone Pony.
Cookman Creamery, Asbury Park’s artisanal ice creamery dedicated to diverse ice cream styles handcrafted from quality local ingredients, has created a brand-new flavor at their shop on 711 Cookman Ave. To celebrate the fourth anniversary of soul personality, Remember Jones, and in growing anticipation of the annual Black Friday show at The Stone Pony with his 12-piece, high energy, super-soul band.
Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller, and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy. Collaboratively supported by a large ensemble of musicians (featuring female backing vocalists, a horn section, and a six-piece rhythm section), the band has played to many packed and sold-out ballrooms, clubs, and theaters throughout the country.
Remember Jones’ debut album, Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones! was created after raising close to $19,000 through nearly 300 small donations via IndieGoGo, and created in front of a live studio audience with a 25-piece band. Their subsequent release, Tranquilizer! was recorded at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville, Tenn. under the production of Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Langhorne Slim). Remember Jones was named one of Paste Magazine and Daytrotter’s Top 10 R&B/Soul Artists of 2017.
In addition to touring and supporting two albums worth of original material, Remember Jones presents and fronts multiple productions which have also gained wide popularity. Back to BACK TO BLACK, a recreation of the entire Amy Winehouse album with an orchestra of 15, and Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen in a 20-piece arrangement, have helped Remember Jones develop a diverse audience as the band opens each performance with a set of original music. They were the first to present R. Kelly’s Trapped In the Closet live with a 20-piece orchestra, and have performed Jeff Buckley’s Grace album in its entirety as a collaboration with Grammy-nominated guitarist and Grace co-writer Gary Lucas. In the spring of 2018, the band played a run of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of Kanye West’s 808s and Heartbreak.
In the vein of putting their spin on others’ material, Remember Jones will release, A Kick In the Head! (planned for 2018 release), an EP in celebration of Dean Martin’s 100th birthday, featuring a duet with Dean’s daughter, Deana Martin.
Whether you see him fronting a piano, a four-piece band, or with a soul orchestra of 25, Remember Jones evokes the energy of the great front men and women, with one of a kind song styling and expert storytelling that keep audiences on their toes and emotions in the moment.
“Tranquilizer!” the name of a popular Remember Jones single, the band’s latest EP, and now a flavor of ice-cream has a coconut cream base made with Jack Daniels. Activated coconut charcoal gives this vegan ice-cream its black color, and is sweetened with maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon. It is available beginning Nov. 7, 2018 as scoops and in full pints.
With every purchase at Cookman Creamery, customers will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to see Remember Jones at The Stone Pony on Friday, Nov. 23. Now in its third year after two sold-out years in a row, “Back to BLACK FRIDAY” returns with an original Remember Jones set PLUS their acclaimed “back to BACK TO BLACK” show, a tribute to Amy Winehouse and revival of the entire “Back to Black” album with a 15-piece orchestra band.
