Barnes has been endorsed by the US Postal Service for a commemorative forever stamp and collectible CD music of Miles Davis that Barnes produced and recorded.
Barnes has also been endorsed by Monster Cable, who sponsored the daCarbo Jazz Festival, too. Jon Barnes will be playing music with Noel Lee at Monster Cable in Monterey Ca, Friday Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 16-18) at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (car show) in Monterey County.

Jon, is originally from Baltimore, Maryland, is a multi-instrumentalist. His favored instruments are trumpet and piano, but “he plays all and teaches all instruments.” He is multi-talented. Jon is a writer, composer, producer, educator and a businessman. Jon began studying trumpet in church and elementary school. His desire to teach was created by the music taught by of his mentors. Over the years, Jon has recorded, toured and produced many projects with well known performers, both past and present. Among them are, Gerald McCaulley, Billy Preston, Gerald Albright, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson, Tom Scott, Chris Botti, Gary Bias, Brenda Russell, Little Anthony and the Imperials, to name a few. He has been featured on the West Coast Allstars CD and DVD, and he created his own music curriculum, “KidsMusicCorner.com,” which allows children to learn about music while simulating the playground experience. “Jon, like Miles Davis enjoys sharing the stage with talented people who are inspiring, honest, and hard working. He enjoys spending time with his family in jam sessions and teaching music to his grandkids. Jon believes ‘ a family that plays together will stay together’.” Links: Official Music Blog, Website, Facebook, ReverbNation, YouTube and DC Bebop page.
