Over the course of their 30-year history, the Amazing Rhythm Aces have toured with Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffet, Fleetwood Mac, and the Eagles; broken up and then reunited; recorded more than 10 albums; and played across the U.S. and Australia. They bring all of that experience to bear in this edition of Jubilee.

The Amazing Rhythm Aces came together in Memphis in the early 1970s to create what they describe simply as “American music,” blending rock, country, blues, folk, reggae, and Latin influences. Their best-known songs are “Third Rate Romance,” “Amazing Grace (Used To Be Her Favorite Song),” and the Grammy-winning “The End Is Not in Sight.”

Members of the Aces are singer-songwriter Russell Smith on electric/rhythm guitar, Billy Earheart on keyboards, Kelvin Holly on lead guitar and backup vocals, Mark Horn on drums, and Lorne Rall on bass. Their Jubilee set includes tunes from a recent release entitled Nothin’ But the Blues.
