joe solo on July 8, 2017 (Happy Independence Day!)

Summer is a busy time. Over the next few weeks, I'll be performing for Lewisburg's Wednesday Music in the Park Series with Lawson & Disorder on July 12 and Sink or Swing on July 26. DePotorLand opens a new brunch series at Pronto Provisions playing 11 am to 2pm on Sunday, July 16 and possibly again on July 30. Sweet Nothings will perform for Mifflinburg's Music in the Park Series on Thursday, August 3.

I continue to post tunes from my home studio, the most recent being BOMBaSt Away, a jazzy reworking of Bombastic Blather of Budget Hawks.

Also, thanks to all who have listened to the Orange Presidential Blues, my first Soundclick Top Ten tune, which has rested atop the Political Humor charts since it was posted. My appreciation to Fearless Leader, whose utterly incompetent performance as president is frustrating to his supporters and detractors alike, fueling the frustration expressed in the tune. He is a con man, and the only fulfillment of his promise to "Make America Great Again" is his own hyper-egotistical self image.

With the exception of Mango Chutneyed, everything posted here results from home recording in which alll the tunes posted are original compositions of mine, with performances on the various tracks also by me.
Why this name?
Not really a band, a shortcut for these solo endeavors, many of which have been peformed by other bands, such as DePotorLand, Lawson & Disorder, and Good Without One (now defunct)
Do you play live?
Since 1965, in one way shape or form.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Take it to the people.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Band History:
Unavailable at press time.
Your influences?
Too numerous to mention, Abba through Zappa. On second thought, forget Abba.
Favorite spot?
Still looking.
Equipment used:
Since 2005:

TP Noble strat style guitar
Zinky Blue Velvet all tube amplifier
Zoom 4040 digital effects, succeeded in 2016 by a Boss GT 100
For the late 2016 and early 2017 jazzy updates, I am privileged to have the use of a vintage Levin Deluxe guitar, which I am enjoying immensely.
Anything else...?
The nifty hand-drawn images that accompany the tunes and lyric pages are the work of LJ Kopf, old friend, photographer, and cartoonist, author of EDGE cartoons.

Special thanks to the late Ed Rhoades for the picture he sketched of me in his home studio!

Also, thanks to all the folks I have had the honor to accompany over the years, too numerous to mention here, going back to the high school garage band, "The Whats", in 1965 and 1966.
