Alabama Music Office.com goes to The Booth in downtown Tuscaloosa, Alabama to attend a performance by Plato Jones.
Plato Jones is a four-piece band that lights up the stage with their musical showmanship. Eric Fry, drums/vocals, and Tyler Crawford, bass/vocals, hold down the rhythm section and provide sweet harmonies to the melody. William Stephenson, guitar/lead vocals, and Theo Pinson, piano/organ/synth, light up the high end and hammer down the melodic tunes. William, Tyler, and Eric started playing live shows in January of 2005, and Theo joined the band in August of 2005 to give the group the full sound that they were looking for. Due to their fusion of jam, blues, and rock and roll, Plato Jones has quickly risen to become one of Tuscaloosa's signature bands. Since their debut in January 2005, the band has played over 600 shows around Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. All the members of the band grew up together in Athens, Alabama, and now reside in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. With 3 out of the 4 members finished with school, the band is anxious to hit the studio and the road. Although well established in and around Tuscaloosa, Plato Jones is looking to broaden their horizons and tour all over the southeast.
