The Joe Marcinek Band is on the move — again! This current tour, which starts tonight (Wednesday, November 9) at Scarlet & Grey in Columbus OH, is actual four small mini-tours stretching through December 18th. This is the album release tour for Marcinek’s outstanding new album Slink (read the MusicFestNews review here).
The JMB mission statement: “JMB is an ever-evolving mixture of original compositions and incredible musicians. Each show has a slightly different lineup and interpretation.”
The first leg of this album showcase tour features four shows in Ohio; Dave Katz (Ekoostik Hookah) joins Joe on the 9th. Then Holly Bowling, Penal Johnson and Cody Dickinson play the next three nights.
The second leg finds JMB in the Midwest (Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin) for four more dates from November 30 to December 3. Joe performs the first night with SOAP. After that, Janis Wallin and Pete Koopmans (both from Family Groove Company) join Joe and Bowling on stage.
Next, JMB travels to Georgia and the Carolinas for shows December 8, 9 and 10. This time Joe will be joined by the redoubtable Ike Stubblefield, PJ, and Dumpstaphunk’s Alvin Ford, Jr.
And finally, five more dates in the Midwest (December 14-18) through Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana, closing with a few pints at Founder’s in Grand Rapids, feature Joey Porter (The Motet), Tony Hall (Dumpstaphunk) and Koopmans. And the show in Schererville IN December 16 will be with Hometown Show.
Get you some Joe Marcinek Band live AND on CD!
