The crowd cheers as they recognize the opening lines of “Danny Boy.” Jones sings the song in his famous soda pop shop way. This new version of an old folk song is a huge hit.

Jones then ramps up the energy again by jumping into “Delilah.” With a beat that sounds like a cross between carousel music and a mariachi band, you will find it hard not to dance.
