In addition to an impressive musical career, Jon is also known for his accomplishments as an actor, most notably a nine-season run as “Jason” on “The Waltons,” as well as creating the voice of Christopher Robin for Disney’s “Winnie-the-Pooh” cartoons. Jon continues to write, produce and perform music for a variety of projects. In addition to a continuing busy schedule of live and session work, Jon performs as guitarist / bass guitarist / keyboardist / vocalist with his two bands, “The U.K. Beat” and “The Blues Odyssey”.
