Jimmie Joe & Chrissie Natoli "The Better Halves"
Rear Window Listening Room
Ganado, TX
Share this event:

The Better Halves are an Austin-based husband-wife duo who specialize in making listeners smile.  With roots in country, bluegrass, folk, jazz, and classical music, their funny, touching duets use clever lyrics and real boy-girl banter to uplift and entertain audiences, who respond with laughter and knowing nods.  Their rousing instrumentals always bring down a shower of applause!

Jimmy Joe Natoli attended both the Berklee College of Music and Guitar Institute of Technology.  He began playing guitar at age 12, when a knee injury left him unable to play soccer, which had been his passion.  Luckily his dad had an old Harmony guitar in their Long Island home, and a friend shared the riff from Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love."  He was hooked and put a poster of Jimi Hendrix on the ceiling above his bed for waking inspiration.  When he was 16, his uncle gave him a record of Los Indios Tabajaras, an amazing Brazilian guitar duo.  His world was opened to a whole new realm of music, and he still thrives on exploring all genres and nationalities of music.  He has toured and done studio work with bands that range from artsy alternative rock to country.    

Chrissie spent her childhood writing poems.  She put them to music when  she picked up the guitar as a biology undergraduate student  at Penn State.  Years later, in acupuncture school, she met fellow musician, Alison Lumley.  The two formed the duo Avenue Elle, and  Chrissie was looking for a gig at the farmers market where Jimmy Joe books music.  It wasn't long until Chrissie and Jimmy Joe began jamming together, playing music throughout central Texas, and eventually marrying with a musical wedding that really included their now recorded song, "Wedding Vows."

This is going to be a wonderful show, just as the last one was. Come and meet this amazing husband-wife duo as they deliver some wonderful music and excellent humor along the way.
