I’m pleased to announce that I’ve picked up a residency at Tack Room in Pilsen on Friday nights.  It’s one of my new favorite places.  Hip staff, dialed menu, good vibes.

Of course I’ll still be playing your favorite hits and Disney classics, but I’ll also going to keep things fresh with some new sounds and original songs.  It’ll be a new show every week.

I’d love to see you there, get your feedback, and share some good times as I keep developing the next project. Thanks again for all your support.

Super stoked to announce that I’ll be playing a very special set on Thursday, February 1st at the House of Blues in Chicago.

This will be quite a different show in many ways — I don’t want to give everything away, but I can assure you of a few things:

  1. I’m playing first, so make sure you’re there at 7pm sharp.
  2. Though I’m still playing the hits, there’s going to be plenty of new music that I know you’re going to dig.
  3. You can buy tickets through the House of Blues (please make sure you use promo code “Joel” or I won’t get the credit) or you can come to any one of my shows before then and I will sell them direct and save you the handling fees.

Hope to see you there for a great night of music in a great sounding venue in a great city.

And as always, feel free to reach out to me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Cheers,

Joel

Friends,

I’ve really been looking forward to this year. 2017 was brutal, wracked with disappointment; but I’m also able to say that 2017 was also the best year of my life. I saw corners of the world I had never seen, I celebrated life and new relationships, and I married the Viking Queen.

She and I were talking and we both feel a wind of change coming — particularly in the arts. The wind has caught our sails and all of us are going to share in something spectacular this year.

Be sure to check back here, and follow on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for new content and shows. Wishing you all the best in 2018,

Joel

  • We talked product. #curls
  • This Friday’s a little different. I always thought this song would be a perfect cheesy lounge swing tune. I added this hat for silliness. Cheesy piano guys always have silly hats. Seriously. Almost all of them wear cheesy hats. And not just because they’re balding. Because they think it’s cool. It’s really sad. I really need to rethink some things. Please send suggestions.

I had a tough time with this one. I had so many ideas and started overthinking it, so I had to take myself by surprise. This is the result. .
