The Joe Marcinek Band will play five shows in early December with a very special lineup. The brief tour brings the band to Syracuse and Buffalo on Dec. 4 and 5.
The current incarnation of the Joe Marcinek Band features Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) on bass, Pete Koopmans (Family Groove Project) on drums and Holly Bowling on keys. Joe Marcinek, of course, will be on guitar. Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident, EOTO) will cover percussion the first two nights, with Michelangelo Carubba (Turkuaz) taking over the final three. ROAR, formerly Yojimbo, will open each night.
Marcinek has a new album in the works. He is funding its creation through a crowd-source campaign. From his website:
We are going out to Colorado to record at Scanhope Sound with Joey Porter from the Motet producing. Most of the money raised will go towards covering the studio time, musicians, mixing, master, manufacturing and anything left over will go towards advertising!
I’ve put together a great package of perks for all those that pledge! Not only will you get a copy of the new CD once finished but if you let us know your email address you will recieve a digital copy of our first album “Both Sides” and the unreleased recording of the show from last month where JMB opened for Moe. The JMB lineup included Jim and Vinnie from Moe as well as Borahm Lee from Break Science on keys!
Tickets for all shows are currently available.
