Jon Pousette-Dart Band

Saturday November 7, 2015 @ 8:00 PM

The Pousette-Dart Band, led by Jon Pousette-Dart carved a place in the landscape of American music in the 1970’s. They were a mainstay of album radio, a favorite on the college circuit, and became one of the busiest touring groups in the US working with such acts as The Byrds, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, The Eagles, James Taylor, The J. Geils Band, Eddie Money, Manfred Mann, Jonathan Edwards, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Emmylou Harris, Gary Wright, Robert Palmer, Randy Newman, Journey, Billy Joel, NRBQ, and many more including the now famous Frampton Comes Alive tour, and the progressive Yes Fragile tour – playing arenas from Coast to Coast.

While the original group dis-banded in the early 80’s, Jon kept performing with original drummer Eric Parker and continued writing and producing into the 90’s, when he returned to Nashville to begin recording again on his own. He turned out four more solo albums and recently released “Anti-Gravity”, a cohesive selection of his best songs to date. He has co-written with some of the finest writers in the country including, Darrell Scott, Gary Nicholson, Jaime Kyle, Kostas, John Bohlinger, Angelo, Sally Barris, Fred Knobloch, and Angela Kaset. Two videos from the latest release, “Heaven is Here” and “Who I Am,” are featured on YouTube and here at the site. Jon is currently working both solo, duo, and with his tight knit band with Paul Socolow on bass, Eric Parker on drums, and Jim Chapdelaine, with whom he co-produced his last release “Anti-Gravity”.

Jon’s continued writing and travels have kept him engaged in Nashville where the original bands first albums were recorded with Norbert Putnam. He has continued performing nationally and writing steadily with many of the finest writers that embody the best of the American music scene.

This year, 2014, Jon is releasing his latest “record” entitled “Talk”, with Bil VornDick producing. The relationship was meant to be, as it has produced his strongest release to date.

Jon had wanted to revisit the aura of his earliest years at Quadraphonic Studios when the core members of Area Code 615, were onboard to grace the tracks of the original albums along with original band members, John Troy and John Curtis.

“I knew the first moment I walked in on the tail of the timeless Drift Away sessions with Dobie Gray, I was in the right place, at Quad in Tennessee, with Norbert and his deep bench of players.

Move ahead from 1974 to 2014, and the circle is complete.
