PAUL JONES (Shaggy)Paul Jones

My name is Paul and I am a resident of Oregon. I play with the band Flaverpak (not, not the frozen foods!!, copyright and all.....) I have been playing for about 12 years and have done a variety of cool things. I joined the Marine Corps Band and attended the Armed Forces School of Music. Talk about a sweet gig!! I have had the fortunate opportunity to sit in with the likes of local powerhouses such as The Jive Talkin' Robots and the great blues man Robbie Law. I spent a couple of summers doing Drum and Bugle Corps, which is a great learning experience for any drummer who has not had the opportunity. My current project, though is where I have been placing the majority of my time. Flaverpak was born and bred in early 1999 (the year of our master, Prince) and has become a powerhouse of progressive funk featuring some of the finest players in the northwest. In an effort to better promote ourselves, www.groovenw.com was created and became a monster that has gotten out of hand. We now promote and are linked to, well, just about everything that we could get our hands on in the northwest. Although still small we continue to grow, and if you would like to be a part of this, just let me know. Enough about everyone else, more on me...... I am classically trained as both an orchestral and concert percussionist and only started playing drumset about 6 years ago. In that short amount of time I have become fairly well known throughout my little area and have been frequently asked to play with a variety of great musicians.
