He's also backed Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Phoebe Snow, Hubert Sumlin, Rudy Ray Moore, Elvin Bishop, and The Uptown Horns, to name just a few. All the while Paris has maintained his own New York City-based Rock'n'Blues band. They appear regularly at the B.B. King Blues Club in New York City's Times Square, and at clubs, concerts, and festivals across the country. Paris has opened shows for Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Bobby Bland, Dick Dale, George Thorogood, Brian Setzer, Southside Johnny, Joan Jett, Foreigner, Cheap Trick, and more. He's also headlined in Canada, Norway, Sweden, Israel, and South Africa; and he and his group were well received at Harley-Davidson's 90th, 95th, 100th, and 105th Anniversary Celebrations.

King, Freddie King, Scotty Moore, James Burton, Dr. John, John Mayall, John Hammond, Cornell Dupree, Luther Allison, Jack Bruce, John Entwistle, Noel Redding, Gregg Allman, Steve Miller, The Yardbirds... the list goes on; and for over 20 years Paris was a featured guest with his friend, the late-great Les Paul, Godfather of the electric guitar. Paris performed with Les at the legendary Carnegie Hall for Les's 90th Birthday, and he appears with him on the PBS American Masters DVD "Les Paul: Chasing Sound."

Jon Paris's critically acclaimed albums, "Rock the Universe" and "Blue Planet," feature some of his many Blues-drenched original rockers as well as his unique versions of some great Rock'n'Roll and Blues classics. His songs also appear in such major motion pictures as The Naked Gun, My Boss's Daughter, Scary Movie, and Shall We Dance, and Jon Paris is a featured artist on the Peter Green tribute CD "Rattlesnake Guitar" and on the B.B., Albert, and Freddy King tribute DVD "Walking with the Kings."
