 Band features sons Dez and Julian and daughter Jesse


Dez Money and The Faze to open multiple shows along tour


Band displays “musical chops (and stage presence) beyond their years”- Cleveland Examiner






NEW YORK, NY (June 18, 2015) Rock & Roll icon Eddie Money proudly announces his US Tour with his family band. The Sound of Money Tour will kick off in early June and includes performances from daughter Jesse Money on background vocals, son Dez Money on guitar and son Julian Money on drums. On a recent stop at House of Blues Cleveland Examiner raved, “the band displayed musical chops (and stage presence) beyond their years on the wistful “Baby Hold On” and soul-charged “Wanna Be a Rock and Roll Star” (both from Money’s 1977 debut). With Dez and cohort Robert Dartnell on guitar, the black-clad Eddie was free to shake a tambourine, wail on saxophone (“We Should Be Sleeping”), thwack a cowbell (“Walk On Water”), and huff on harmonica (“No Control”).”


After years on the road and endless traveling with his band, Money has gathered the talented musicians and vocalists, also known as his children, to hit the road and enjoy this once in a lifetime experience together in the true spirit of camaraderie and family. "This is the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music, a story about a very talented music family, so we decided to call the tour with the kids, The Sound of Money tour. The tour has a new twist on all of my greatest hits plus new songs with the kids.  For the first time in my life I am putting my family first and using this time to bond with them and actualizing a dream of mine by showcasing their talent on stage. God has granted me my wish to bring to my fans the experience out there. I think it's something you don't want to miss!" Money states about the tour.


Eddie Money burst onto the scene with his double-platinum album on Columbia Records in 1977 spawning the two hits "Baby Hold On" and "Two Tickets to Paradise". Legendary rock impresario Bill Graham raved "Eddie has it all...not only can he sing, write, and play, he's a natural performer." Over the course of his storied career, Money sold over 28 million records and amassed over 20 hits with overwhelming success at both Pop and Rock radio including "Shakin'", "I Think I'm in Love", "I Wanna Go Back", "We Should Be Sleeping", "Walk On Water", "I'll Get By", and his legendary hit with Ronnie Spector, "Take Me Home Tonight". Money's songs have appeared in dozens of movies including, television shows and hit video games including "Mall Cop", the infamous Geico commercial, "Grand Theft Auto", and "Guitar Hero".

“I'm honored to partner with The Andrew Weishar Foundation and host WeishFest 2015. Being involved for so many years helping friends and families battling cancer, I look forward to bringing more attention and awareness to this cause and helping many families burdened by this deadly disease!”


 – Dennis McKinnon #85


“During his fight, Andrew asked very little of us, however, before he passed, the one request Andrew had for my family and I was to “pay forward” the kindness and generosity that we received from so many during those three years. To honor his one and only wish, we created The Andrew Weishar Foundation with the mission of paying forward that kindness and generosity by providing immediate financial aid to families with adolescents or young adults battling cancer.”


– Dan Weishar, Executive Director - The Andrew Weishar Foundation

About Eddie Money: "I've got two tickets to paradise and I'm taking everybody." Eddie Money says it at least once, every show. And he means it. As the years have passed, this straight up music icon’s blue-collar brand of rock n roll has managed to transcend generations and continues to move audiences today. With hits like "Two Tickets To Paradise," "Baby Hold On," "Walk On Water," "Think I'm In Love" and "Shakin," Money has sold more than 28 million records, with many of his songs appearing in film, television and video games. An accomplished musician who sings, writes, and plays the saxophone, harmonica and piano, he continues to be one of the hardest working men in rock and roll, performing about 150 shows every year. "My fans are the best, most loyal fans a guy could ask for. They keep coming back for more and I'm not gonna stop until they make me stop."

About Warrant: At its core, WARRANT is an American rock band through and through. Hitting it big in 1989, the Hollywood, CA based band rose through the ranks of the local Sunset Strip scene to the level of multiplatinum selling, chart-topping success. The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. This album produced Radio and MTV chart toppers “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and the massive hit “Heaven” which reached #1 in Rolling Stone and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in a row. The single “Heaven” enjoyed Gold sales and the Album went Platinum in Canada as well, eventually selling over 3 million copies. The band toured the globe performing 262 shows in support of DRFSR and closed the year with a Platinum Home Video.

WARRANT’s sophomore album Cherry Pie was released in September 1990. This album, which spawned the MTV & Radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red,” all reached the Top 10 in the United States and went on to sell 3 million copies, reaching Platinum sales in Canada and Australia.. WARRANT has been headlining festivals, casinos and fairs all over the country. The band is fired up and tighter than every musically! These rockers can’t wait to play not only ALL the hits fans know & love, but also new tunes/videos like “Life’s A Song,” & “Home.”

About Jeff Jacobs:  From Chicago, IL, Jeff toured the world with Foreigner for 17 years but may be best known as The Piano Man's, Piano Man during his time with Billy Joel. Jeff is the first thing you hear on both of Billy's two #1 hit records, "We Didn't Start the Fire" and "River of Dreams". Jeff  has also worked with with Julian Lennon and has performed  LIVE on the Tonight Show for the late great Johnny Carson and The Arsenio Hall Show.


For the majority of Jacobs’ 30 years in the industry, Baldwin has been his piano of choice. His first exposure to Baldwin came in the late 1980s shortly after he was asked to join Billy Joel’s band, where he ended up recording two albums, Stormfront and River of Dreams, and toured the world as Joel’s primary keyboard player.


The Jeff Jacobs Stormfront album was produced by Foreigner’s Mick Jones, who also noticed Jacob’s brilliant keyboard skills. By 1993, Jacobs had become a full-time member of Foreigner, and has since enjoyed great success as both a writer and producer for such artists as Julian Lennon, Laura Brannigan, Phil Ramone, Paul Simon, Wayne Baker Brooks, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Survivor, Dennis DeYoung, Sugar Blue, Twista, Heather Headley, Honeyboy Edwards, Pine Top Perkins and many more....
