It's been a long time since I've heard someone perform on the high musical and professional level of accomplishment that Joe Rathburn exhibits, and truthfully right now I can't remember exactly when. With tuneful, thoughtful and melodic songs, adroit playing (to say the least) and excellent singing, his show was edifying and inspiring to me and to the audience, and a lot of fun besides. It made me want to go home and practice. He's a real musician and I'd recommend Joe Rathburn under any circumstances. This man takes care of business.”
