My players in this band, after trying to come up with a name said that I should just call it the Norm Jones Band, 'cause no matter what we come up with that's what we're always known as. They were happy with that, so that is what it became. I had a few different players in the band.  For a time Danny Smith, formerly of the Vancouver band 6 Cylinder,  played lead for me. For about three years tho' my band was easily the hottest band in the country rock circuit throughout Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, Blaine and Sumas.

On lead guitar, was Rick Leather, (originally from Toronto).  On steel and lead, was Rick Dunn, (originally from Spartanburg, South Carolina); on bass was Joel Sacks, (from Montreal); and on drums, Lorne Burns, (from Outlook, Saskatchewan, and also from 6 cylinder).  All five of us sang, and oddly enough, not one man in the band smoked.  In 1987, we opened the very popular club in Coquitlam (Boone County)

Our band was similar to the "BAND", because there were four Canadians and one American.
