Jon B at the Blue Note

Blue Note presents Jon B on Friday Oct. 27 and Saturday, Oct. 28, at 6:30 and 9 p.m. and on Sunday Oct. 29, at 3 and 6:30 p.m. Songwriter, producer, vocalist and instrumentalist Jon B brought a distinctive focus on smooth melodies to contemporary R&B. Born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and raised in Pasadena, California, Jon B (short for Jonathan Buck) was the son of a professor of music and a concert pianist. Influenced by music found in his grandparents’ record store, he began combining the spirit of ‘70s soul with hip-hop-inspired productions on his 1995 debut album, Bonafide. His second album, Cool Relax, continued the emphasis on hip-hop soul and featured two of his biggest singles. Blue Note, 1030 Main St., Napa,
