Josh Blake's Jukebox + Mary Frances and The Dirty Classics
JOSH BLAKE'S JUKEBOX:
On route to Jamaica in January 1997, Josh stopped in Asheville, N.C. to visit some of his friends. Soon thereafter he moved to Asheville to help establish the musical force known as GFE. A multidimensional artist, Josh's musical understanding is based on his 20 years as guitarist and songwriter. With a travelers knowledge of our world, Josh uses his talents to bring good vibes to his audience, to spread consciousness, and challenge social injustice.
Josh Blake's Jukebox is composed of some of Asheville's finest musicians. The drummer Patrick Thomas and bassist Elijah Cramer are from the funky Asheville powerhouse Strut. Affectionately dubbed "The Hot Sauce" female vocalist Marisa Albert spices up the show with beautiful harmonies and leads. A rotating cast of keyboardists have participated throughout the years, such as Justin W Powell from (The Mantras), Dave McCrackin (Donna The Buffalo), Frank Mapstone (The Big Old Nasty Get Down), and Ryan Burns (The Invisible 3). Multi-instrumemtalist, Matt Williams (Matt Williams and The Ocean, Zansa, and Vertigo Jazz Project) adds to the diverse sound of the Jukebox. And rounding out the sounds lately, the Jukebox has had Johnny Durkin (Deep Bannana Blackout, Mike DIllion Band) on percussion. With songs that range from rock to bluegrass, hip-hop to reggae, Josh Blake's shows deliver what most listeners crave...great music with the proper intention.
