POST-SUNS GAME PARTY! - 8:30pm3 South 2nd Street
Phoenix Arizona 85004
It's me and my band's first headlining show at this legendary venue. Nominated for Best Blues Club in Phoenix this year, it's a real honor to be offered a Saturday show all of our own. Please come down and party with us!
My band has been given the honor of being selected as contenders in this high-profile, high-stakes blues competition, the winner competes at the national showdown in Nashville! Please come down to show support and enjoy a great afternoon of Arizona's finest blues artists. We would really appreciate your support!
My band will be competing for the chance to open for a Grammy-winning artist at Westworld in October! Please come down and show support!
Me and my band will be having a release party for my new 10 song bootleg CD of vintage, high-energy, Chicago-style blues at the Sail Inn on Friday, Aug. 24th and I wanted to invite you and your friends.
We'll go on a little after 10pm and I'm also doing an acoustic jam at the end of the night a little after 1am. This album will not be available online, only at the show, and I won't be selling it, just giving free copies to friends who would like one until we run out.
Hope to see you there!
After two years in the making, Joe's new album of 11 original songs is ready to release! Please come down to celebrate! The show will feature Ken Mosley on the drums (he also plays drums on the entire album) and Justin Swartzentruber on the bass (he's on the album in spirit because Joe borrowed his bass for the recording session : )
The bands DAD, and the Companeros (featuring Audrea Lim from Dr. Bones) will be performing as well!
It's going to be an awesome night. Please come down and enjoy the party!
Please come down to support us! The top three bands will compete for a chance to play at Hyde Park in London, opening for Bruce Springsteen!
Great news: Ken, Justin and I made it into the third stage of the global Hard Rock Cafe competition and we'd like to invite you to spend Valentine's Day evening with us while we perform live and compete for our chance to play in London!
As a way of saying thanks, if you RSVP to me (via email or Facebook) and join us next Tuesday to show support, I will personally give you a free advance copy of my new 11-song album of original music. Ken drums on the entire record and this will be the first time it’s ever been made publicly available!
If you can make it, please let me know and I’ll make sure I reserve a copy of this gift for you.
Thanks so much! Hope to see you there : )
We're filming our first pro music video and having a free after-shoot party at 2:30pm. Come down and party with us! Will be the last electric performance for some time. The new album is almost ready to be mastered!
Please join Ken, Jimmy and I as we hit the stage since the first time since our benefit concert. We plan to run through most, if not all, of the new songs off the new album live, some of which for the first time! We're shooting for the first week in April to have the entire new album mixed and mastered. We're also preparing to shoot our very first professional video!
The Sail Inn won the Best Rock Music Venue in Phoenix 2010 award from the New Times! It's a real honor to be offered a Saturday night 10pm slot at one of our favorite venues.
Please come down and celebrate good times with us!
