Live music! Jerry Joseph with Frank Ruffolo

February 9th, 2012

 

Saturday 18 February,

9:00PM ‘til late — FREE!

Jerry Joseph is constantly touring. If it isn’t solo, it is with his rock band The Jackmormons or one of his side projects, including The Stockholm Syndrome. Regardless of the configuration, it is always about the songs.

On this solo tour Joseph will be highlighting songs from his recently released album, “Into The Lovely” and Joseph’s 2004 solo release “Cherry”. We can also expect to hear newly recorded songs from an upcoming release. The songs on “Cherry” are intimate masterpieces that reveal the sights and sounds of life lived on the road. Live, the songs are accompanied by stories of their origins.

Frank Ruffalo recently played at Opposite with his band El Dealbreakers.

“Sounding occasionally like John Mellencamp’s older, wiser and psychologically mixed-up sibling, Joseph writes complex, image-laden songs and infuses them with plenty of attitude, soulfulness and swagger.” – Washington Post
