Each of Ally’s band mates are versatile on multiple instruments. Bassist Bobby Wallace is a master at his craft and his years of experience enhance the band. Classically trained musician and drummer, Elijah Owings, brings a steady but dynamic sound to the band. He is the backbone of their Modern Rockin’ Blues sound.

In 1996 Wes entered the International Jimi Hendrix Competition held in Austin, TX and placed an amazing second among fifteen hundred other young guitar players.
Al Hendrix, father of Jimi Hendrix, told Wes, "In my eyes, you won because you played straight from the heart like Jimi!" These words along with the support of his family and friends set this young Texas Tornado in motion. Soon, Wes was playing area venues and festivals, attracting booking agents and record labels.

In June 2006 Wes released his 2nd studio album "Forest Of The Pine" under Texas Music Records. In October of 2009 this Texas Tornado struck again with the release of his highly anticipated live CD "Live at Music City Texas", recorded at a sold out show at the Music City Texas Theater in Linden on January 17, 2009. Fans all across the country agree the closest you will get to the live raw stage power of Wes Jeans is "Live at Music City Texas".

Throughout his career, Wes has had the honor of meeting and sharing the stage with many musical greats such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Billy Gibbons, David Lee Roth, Dick Dale, Eric Johnson, Hubert Sumlin, Lynryd Skynyrd, Robert Cray, Joe Bonamassa, Indigenous, Lance Lopez, Chris Duarte, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, just to name of few.
