Freddy Jones Band

The Freddy Jones band was formed in 1992 by Wayne Healy and Marty Lloyd, two Loyola University dropouts from Chicago. They self-released their first album, which was later repackaged and released on Capricorn Records in 1994 after scoring a local radio hit with "In a Daydream". They continued to build a fanbase both in the Midwest US and nationwide through tours of colleges. Several albums on Capricorn followed, and 1995’s North Ave. Wake-Up Call and 1997’s Lucid both attracted some radio airplay (with the songs "Waitress" and "Mystic Buzz") as well as cracking the upper echelons of the Billboard charts. In 1998, bassist Jim Bonaccorsi and guitar/vocalist Ron Bonaccorsi left the band and were replaced with bassist Mark Murphy. The band went on hiatus in 2001 but returned in 2006, doing shows in Chicago, Milwaukee and other Midwestern cities.
