Dear friends,

During the summer, I compiled a list of shows that I have played that were not with the band lineup. These shows may have been solo efforts, or shows where I was joined by a friend or two (or three), or where I supported another musician with the set. It was neat to look back on these shows and all the great people I’ve had the pleasure of joining in song. I’m not sure I’ve remembered all of the shows like these, but most of them are listed.

So, for those people who are interested in local music history, or just interested in where Joe has played over the years, here’s the list:

If you’re interested in putting onĀ  a concert in your living room, backyard, coffee shop, or you have a special occasion to celebrate, give me a shout. I’d be glad to sing some tunes for you and your family & friends, and may even bring a few friends along to join me.
