Jon Gibson is mostly known as a Christian and Gospel recording artist where his consistent string of timeless hits have made a lasting impact in church circles worldwide. But Jon originated from the mainstream R&B scene and worked within the same music circles as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Shalamar, Midnight Star, etc. When billed as The Jon Gibson Band, he leans toward his classic Christian/Gospel hits that made him a household name to Christian and Gospel music fans worldwide. For Secular events, Jazz Festivals, corporate events, etc., Jon is usually billed as JG & the MIX, or The Jazzmixers and the music leans more towards carefully selected 70's, 80's and 90's Jazz/Rock/ Soul Classics along with a mix of his universal style Gospel originals.
When the artist Prince hired Jon to be the "House Band" for a Golden Globes after party, he was billed as JG & THE MIX where he performed mostly soul covers like Superstition and What's Goin' On?, along with a mix of his own originals. He'll use the same formula at Jazz festivals or private/corporate events. Jon is a studio artist that is really is best heard live, because live, he is fearlessly creative. Jon is a freestyle scat artist who imitates instruments with his voice and can ad lib on-the-fly over any piece of music. Where an accomplished instrumentalist would use a string or a wind instrument to highlight their skills , Jon uses his voice as a soloing instrument.
