On Friday, September 20, 2013, Americana/Alt-country singer-songwriter, Jiggley Jones performed at the Dewey Beach Music Conference. In what he refers to as a “Roadhouse” moment, referring to the Patrick Swayze cult-favorite movie, a fight broke out during his midnight showcase. Like a true professional, the 2013 International Music and Entertainment Association award nominee didn’t skip a beat:
“In the middle of my performance a fight broke out, literally, right on top of me. I kept on playing as the malay bumped into my monitor and moved from side to side, but I kept on playing. After the scrum moved out the door, with bouncers in tow, the remaining crowd and I had quite the laugh. I got so many compliments about how I kept the music going the whole time. I commented that I felt like Jeff Healy in the movie “Roadhouse”. A DJ from the radio station WSTW 93.7 in Wilmington, Mark Rogers was there, and we had a conversation about it. He said he’d never forget that, and how the music didn’t stop even though I was right in the middle of it. Had to be there!”
Jiggley Jones is currently touring in support of his “No Spring Chicken” EP. The release has spent 5 weeks at #3 on the Roots Music Report Americana charts. He has upcoming dates in Wilmington, DE and New York City.
