The Velveetatones are back. The once part time side project is now a full time main project. This time around we have Minneapolis based "LOST JIM"OHLSCHMIDT, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist on guitar. For one night only this month we welcome dear friend and musical collaborator BARRELHOUSE CHUCK. Chicago based blues piano player and 2009 Grammy winner for his work with the soundtrack of the movie "CADDILAC RECORDS".
The rhythm section will be in the preverbial "hot pocket" and will be manned by JOEY BANKS and TONY MENZER. It'll be solo, duo, and full band. Expect Mississippi John Hurt covers from "Lost Jim's" last two tribute C.D. (on John Hurt's daughters label.) And some Chicago barrelhouse ivory tickling from Barrelhouse that will send you running for your Leroy Carr, Pinetop Perkins and Sunnyland Slim records. Add a solid groove and you have the ever changing and delicious casserole of Velveetatone madness. Eat it up kids...We'll cook some more from then on with an ever rotating group of dear friends and road warriors. No two shows are the same so quit your job and come with us.
JOVIAN TAPHAUS in MADISON...FRIDAY JUNE 18TH.
So check out this new venue and remember Velveeta isn't cheese and neither are we!
Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.
