Hi! Wendy here. It took a day to recover from our amazing harbour cruise on Sunday. You were dancing the whole time – we loved it! We wanted to write something yesterday, but were just too buggered. Now it’s Christmas Eve and in an effort to avoid any shopping whatsoever, I think it’s my job to update this website. A much better alternative, don’t you think? Besides, you can easily shop from your computer or phone now anyway. The bad news is that Vinnie-Joe has broken his left foot (the good news is that it isn’t his right foot), and is out of commission for a few weeks. His doctors know how important work and play is to Vince, so we know they’re doing all they can to get him back on stage quickly. In the meantime, we’ve commandeered Mick O’Shea and Fab Omodei for a few of the gigs Vince can’t do. Both are GREAT drummers and both doing their best to do Vinnie-Joe proud. Another big announcement is that we have launched a new app. An official Concord Joe App. It’s a new world out there and we know all of our fans have phones and we want all of our fans to be able to share Concord Joe easily with friends, family, and fellow rockers. The App is a simple way for us to share songs, lyrics, videos, pictures, gigs, and more. We will be offering special pre-releases to people who have the App. App people will also get exclusive releases and […]
NEW VENUE: The Bald Rock Hotel A new (old) venue for live music has booked Concord Joe and we are very excited to be playing there. A heritage-listed old hotel in Rozelle in a very quiet part of the neighbourhood. Owner Damian Silk has live and original music on his radar, and every weekend he is providing wonderful music for all sorts of tastes. Concord Joe will be there on Saturday, November 2 from 8:00. More Saturdays on November 9 and December 28. 2014 dates will be forthcoming…. THE MERTON HOTEL Don’t forget that we have Fridays, too. November 1 and December 20 at the Merton in Rozelle DAVE’S ALBUM LAUNCH Very excited to be a part of David Carter’s Album Launch at the Croatian Sports Club in Wickham (see map) on Sunday, December 1. Music will be from midday. Concord Joe will play a 40 minute support set. You might already know this, but Dave Carter stood in for Billy as an honorary “Joe” while Billy played a few other gigs. I’ve heard Dave’s album, “Ten Tall Tales” and it’s fantastic, so it will be a very fun and musical day. We would love to see you there! FESTIVALS! The Barooga (Barooooooooooooooooga) String Festival is the following week in Barooga, of course. We will be the support to Sarah MacLeod and, the headliner for the night, Mark Seymour. It’s only a short 8 hour drive from Sydney, so we’re hoping you will organise a bus for all of your friends. 🙂 How fun! CRUISES And […]
