Joe's Pub sold out again

Oh man. You guys did it again. Another sold out show at Joe's Pub. Thanks Natalie for a killing opening set and for everybody in the band for pulling off a great night of music. Thanks also to the staff at Joe's and everybody at 3 Sheets Saloon during the afterparty. Good times.

See you at the next one!

Man... It was cold as hell on Jan. 6. But ya'll made it out anyway for an intense night at Rockwood.

We did this show with my good friend Sarah Goldfeather and her band along with Tim Emmerick and his band Firelights. Tim sings, plays guitar and banjo, and writes with me in JOTM. You heard him do his solo thing at this show.

Sarah released an EP this evening as well. I'm a fan of her unique songwriting.

Mercury Lounge was at capacity

I'm still pumped from this show. Mercury Lounge is deceivingly big--yet an intimate atmosphere. You can get right up into the show from just about anywhere. Perfect venue for JOTM. And the club was at capacity with you fine people. What a fun night.

Mel Flannery Trucking Co. released an EP following their opening set. Which killed. Of course. So does the EP, called Autoheart. Check it out.

The Bowery Ballroom sold out

Holy shit. Our recent show at The Bowery Ballroom sold out. There were almost 700 people at the show. Blowing my mind.

The music played by opening bands Hudson Hank, heylady, and Pete Ayres Band were great. Sam, Josh & Nina, and Pete--thanks for all your hard work.

Everybody at The Bowery Ballroom was a pleasure to work with. And thanks to Hair Of The Dog for kicking ass at the after party. You guys rock!

And the band... What can I say? The guys and gals are the absolute best. I cannot think of a group of people I'd rather take the stage with.

We've got some ideas cooking for the fall.  See you then.

Joe's Pub sold out

Well, we sold out Joe's Pub. The show rocked.  I had so much fun.  The band killed.  Joining us on this show was Luis Bonilla, trombone extraordinaire.  Man did he fucking kill it as well.  No rehearsal, just stand up and kill it.

Hudson Hank opened the night with a set of synth-driven original music.  They're led by JOTM trumpet player, Sam Oatts.  He's one of the smartest musicians I know.  He's been all over the world playing trumpet and singing.Their debut album was produced by Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman.  Keep an eye and out and an ear open for it.

Thankfully the Joe's Pub stage was a little bigger than to what we're accustomed...

See you at the next one on March 27 at Rockwood Music Hall.  Pops Neesley is playing tuba.  Mel is singing a solo set to kick off the night.  My buddy Pete Ayres is doing a full band set, then we headline the night.
