“Jones uses Screeching Owl wisely to make a concise statement of his songwriting abilities, and the varied, well-paced contents are a strong culmination of the abilities of a very musical ensemble.” – Andrew Patton, JazzColumbus.com
Screeching Owl was formed in early 2015 by Zakk Jones, who wanted to create a group outside of school to gig with and present original music. In the short time since the bands creation, Screeching Owl has played gigs at Dick’s Den, Brother’s Drake Meadery, Comfest, Wild Goose Creative, with upcoming engagements at the 2015 Columbus Jazz and Ribs Fest and an August Midwest Tour. In April, Screeching Owl put out an EP called “Dreams of Yesterday”, featuring 6 original compositions by Zakk which has been featured and reviewed on JazzColumbus.com, MenSeekingTomahawks.com and more. The group maintains a revolving roster of musicians, allowing each performance to be a completely new, yet polished, experience.
