About Back in Time

Back In Time was formed in the summer of 2009 to be one of the best "horn" bands around featuring the best of beach and soul and rock ’n roll. The core of the band came from veterans of the 1960's and 1970's rock 'n roll scene from around Athens and Northeast Georgia. The Axemen, the Athens Rogues and Cloud Nine helped form the nucleus of Back In Time. With the introduction of a young talented lead singer, Hall County’s Singing Deputy, Jonathan Jackson, and two trumpets, a saxophone and trombone, Back In Time was born. Taking songs from the original artists of the 60's, 70's and beyond, the band put together arrangements that were true to the original recordings. Arrangements by Tom Wallace (arranger for the UGA Redcoat Band) accentuate the talents of the band. Band members include Jonathan Jackson - lead vocals, guitar; Bob Cowles - alto, tenor, & bari sax, vocals; Tom Wallace - trumpet, vocals; Michael Crook – trumpet, percussion, vocals; Rory Crook – trombone, percussion, vocals; Mercer Crook – keyboards, percussion, vocals; Glenn Brown – lead guitar, vocals; John Harriman – bass, vocals; Chuck McKissick – drums, percussion.
