Music with meaning…

Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist

JoePromo_1268547760Hi, thanks for stopping by. I’ve been plying my trade, music, since about 1972; never with an aim toward becoming rich and famous, but just because it seemed like what I was made to do…what I loved to do most. Years later, I’m still lovin’ what I do.
Here you can find out more about my job, attend one of my gigs or events, pick up my CDs, become more involved in what I do…even hire me.
While you’re here, make sure you sign up for my newsletter and maybe drop me a line!

The Folkey Monkey is my heartspace, my soul gig.

Each show, I invite a guest singer/songwriter to join me on stage for two hours. They’ve chosen a theme (usually an artist they admire, or a topic) and we intersperse songs on the theme with our original music, trading songs back and forth and playing along with each other as much as we can.

Folks are always asking me “What are you doin’?” “Where are ya playin’?” “When’s the next show?” “How do I get to the Folkey Monkey?” “Who’s your next guest?” “How much are tickets?” “Are tickets available in advance?” and a plethora of other questions.

Well, they’re all answered in my twice monthly newsletter, The Monkey Musings.
