Born out of the independent record store Zap! Records which can still be found in downtown Cobourg at 45 King East, James Jones of Zapp! Productions has been putting on World Class Concerts in Southern Ontario since 1991 having worked with such names as Blackie and The Rodeo Kings, Blue Rodeo, RL Burnside (we were the first to put him on the road with his band), James Cotton, Robert Cray, John Hammond, Colin James, Dr. John, Junior Kimbrough, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jimmie Vaughan, Johnny Winter and literally hundreds more. James also had the opportunity in the 90's to work with music legend Dale Hawkins, the man who penned and recorded "Suzie Q" and released the first solo Kenny Brown album (famous slide guitarist from the Fat Possum label out of Mississippi) "Goin' Back to Mississippi".  These days we have been  working closely with Jimmy Bowskill in his many bands (solo, trio, Brooks and Bowskill) and at our recording studio Ganaraska Recording Company located in the Northumberland Hills just north of Cobourg.
