Jonny Waters is a multi-talented musician from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Recently winning the OBX Entertainment 2012 Band of the Year award, Jon began his musical career in his hometown marching band and has played with numerous friends along the way.
You can watch Jonny Waters perform live at OBX Entertainment Studios on Episode 11 of our original series OBXE TV in the player below!
Jon’s music has been influenced by his life’s path, from being raised on a farm in small town USA; to spending hours on the Albemarle Sound farming the waters; to keeping the peace and guarding our freedom in the U.S. Army during a tour in Iraq; to being stationed in Germany away from his family and friends; to gaining the fundamentals of the music industry at South Plains College in Lubbock, Texas; to writing and recording his original hits; and developing his grass roots fan base from Texas to Tennessee to North Carolina and the Tidewater, Virginia area.
Jonny has focused his talent into his voice and guitar. His sound is strongly influenced by Blue-eyed Soul, Blues, Folk, Reggae and Acoustic music.
SOULone also is a local band on the Outer Banks, fusing musical styles like acoustic rock, reggae, blues, jazz and funk. They mold all of these expressions into their own, creating a unique experience.
Voted 5 out of 5 stars on WeddingWire.com, they are capable of making any private party or wedding a time to remember. Their carefully selected cover songs can range from mellow “beach-like” music such as Jack Johnson, G Love, Bob Marley and Sublime; then go to a more rock-influenced sound like Kings of Leon, Pearl Jam, Snow Patrol and Pete Yorn; then step way back to cover songs from Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Steve Miller Band, Tom Petty and more. Any way you slice it, it’s just great music that you can connect with.
“Our goal for Summeritaville is to celebrate the beautiful Outer Banks through a family fun event for both locals and visitors,” said Chamber President & CEO Karen Brown. “There will be live music, food, beverages, games, beach bucket raffles and a gorgeous view of the sound,” added Brown. “We’ll celebrate together a great 2015 on the Outer Banks!”
