Jones County’s David “Demun” Jones will be in concert Saturday night in Macon with a sound check meet and greet earlier that afternoon for all ages.
The Nov. 21 show is at The Crazy Bull located at 473 Second Street. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the music begins at 9. The concert is for ages 18 and up, but all ticket holders are invited to the sound check meet and greet from 2-3 p.m. and they may bring an unlimited number of kids.
Tickets for the concert are available at Old Clinton Gas or online at eventbrite.com.
Uncle Earl & Friends will be opening band, and Crucifix will be the special guest at the show.
This is the first year since 2016 that, due to COVID-19, Jones has not been able to have a fundraiser for the Jones County School System. He has raised money for the baseball and softball programs, Special Needs program, teacher supplies and last year the concert was to help buy instruments for the Jones County High School Band.
Those concerts have raised an excess of $80,000 for the school system.
The performer had been helping JCHS for years before starting the fundraising concerts.
He started helping by giving inspirational talks to students, and he and his friend T.J. Heath have partnered more than once to purchase shoes for several of the school’s athletic teams.
Jones graduated from JCHS in 1995 and has been performing professionally since 2004. His music style is known as country rap. His albums include, Demun, Jones County, #BEAST, The Mortar Mixer remix album, Jones In Ya Speaker & The Oven.
Jones said his Middle Georgia shows are always his most important.
“This is where the folks are who have loved and supported me the most and the longest. And it’s where I get to hang out and have a good time,” he commented.
