Jason Minton Molds a Strong Friday the 13th Show in Franklin Tennessee

 

Kimbros Pickin' ParlorFranklin, TN – What’s a native Tennessean who spent his life surrounded by the country music industry but grew up listening to the power pop pleasantries and British sensations like Squeeze and Crowded House to do? If you’re Jason Minton you form a rock band built on a foundation of faith and strong acoustic sensibilities.

In a live setting he looks the part of a rugged country boy. When he sings you’re transported back to the new wave revolution of the 80’s. That’s what we discovered when we finally caught the Jason Minton Band in concert in Franklin, Tennessee on January 13th, 2017 at Kimbros Pickin’ Parlor on South Margin Street.

Singer/songwriter Jason Minton shows a lot of promise in Franklin.
