Nashville and Atlanta's #1 Rock and Soul Dance Party. Famous in Nashville simply as "The Monday Night Dance Party," ELECTRIC WESTERN presides over their wildly successful weekly rock and soul dance party, now in its eighth year.
DJ's JACOB JONES and RENO BO spin a hand-selected mix of the most danceable popular and obscure 50's and 60's Rock and Roll, Soul, Doo Wop, Girl Groups and Garage Rock every Monday night in Nashville and once a month in Atlanta. Their slogan "Monday is the new Friday" holds true each week as the masses converge upon the hip east Nashville neighborhood, pack into rock club The 5 Spot and ready themselves for an evening of dancing, drinking and fun.
GQ Magazine named the ELECTRIC WESTERN dance party "the most stylish party in America." College kids, baby boomers and everyone in between understand why this party is THE party. The rhythmic sounds of Motown, Stax, Sun Records, Chess Records and more keep the crowds in dance hall bliss while the evening's pied pipers Jones and Bo instigate the festivities.
JACOB JONES (co-founder) Entrepreneur, DJ, musician and all around mover and shaker, Jacob Jones founded Electric Western with Reno Bo shortly after moving to Nashville from Brooklyn in 2007. After touring the country several times in a beat up old RV promoting his own records, Jones has started several companies in Nashville, including a creative agency known as Mountain. He has made a name for himself not only for his Electric Western DJ sets but also for connecting people with good times all over the city and curating one-of-a-kind experiences.
RENO BO (co-founder) Musician, songwriter, DJ, and producer Reno Bo is co-founder of Electric Western with Jacob Jones. Before making his home in Nashville TN, Bo spent the previous several years on the road playing bass with fellow New Yorkers Albert Hammond Jr (The Strokes) and The Mooney Suzuki. As member of the Cabin Down Below band - a collection of NYC musicians who produce Petty Fest, a tribute to Tom Petty in cities all over the U.S - Bo has performed on stage with Norah Jones, Jakob Dylan, members of Kings Of Leon, Donald Fagen of Steely Dan and Patrick Carney of the Black Keys among others. If you pause your DVD player quickly enough, he can be spotted playing with The Mooney Suzuki in DreamWorks Pictures war film satire Tropic Thunder, starring Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr.
