Joe Robinson Brings the Blues to PACA by Miriam Lamey

Sunday, Dec. 4

Robinson plays a blend of rock, jazz, blues, and R&B; expect plenty of funky, neat guitar sounds at this gig, in addition to his skilled harmonica playing.

The people have spoken. (Or at least, the event organizers at PACA have.) Australian musician Joe Robinson will play a special performance for one night only. The blues performer takes the PACA stage on Dec. 4 for a “night of musical magic” with local artists Mckenzie Lee Sprague, Eric Brewer, and Claire Stuczynski. Tickets start at $15 for general admission, but couples can purchase a special Sponsor package for $100, which includes reserved seating and complimentary wine. All others can BYOB with proper ID.

Robinson plays a blend of rock, jazz, blues, and R&B; expect plenty of funky, neat guitar sounds at this gig, in addition to his skilled harmonica playing. His sound is smooth and comparisons to John Mayer are not unfounded; check the acoustic version of “Hurricane” via Robinson’s Facebook page to see the similarity. “Fireflies” is another great track for those unfamiliar with his work; it’s light, soothing, but has just a teeny bit of bite to keep listeners hooked. – Miriam Lamey
