Joey Wright and his band are touring Alberta and B.C. and will find his way to the stage at Joe’s Garage Nov. 24.

Joey will be  featuring songs from his last two albums. Jalopy (Juno nominated 2008) is a brilliant mix of bluegrass,traditional jazz and raw imagination, while Hatch (2010 Black Hen Music) is driven by song. Concise emotion layered in soundscapes — dreamy beauty.

Adding to this already rich repertoire are tunes from the fresh-off-the-press TUXEDO! release, ʻIntroducing… TUXEDO!. This a collection of tunes inspired by the music of Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant fueled and interpreted by Joey and Christine Bougie.

Lap steel and twin Telecasters all firing expressive musical darts only to be deflected by a beautifully tight rhythm section.

As is usually expected from Joeyʼs diverse yet fluid show there will be some surprise covers to keep everyone on their toes.

Joey has brought the brilliant Christine Bougie with him for this tour, and some shows will feature Jesse Zubot on violin. The drums are being covered by Pat McGee (Stars) and the bass chops by Dan Whiteley (doubling on mandolin and harmonica).

Wright performs Nov. 24 at Joe’s with David P. Smith also on the bill.

$15 Advance tickets for this show are available at Bop City Records.

The kitchen opens at 6:30pm for the evening with the show time set for an 8:30 p.m. start.

For more information or to make your dinner reservations, contact 250-702-MILO(6456).
