Our First performer of the evening is JOEY BARNES!
Here is a little info about Joey:
on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown, a portion of the EP goes directly to
NextAid, where the proceeds are helping build a community center in the
slums of Nairobi. Change follows previously released Always
Second Chances. The albums were recorded during breaks from his touring
and recording schedule with multi-platinum and award winning rock band
Daughtry, of which he was a member from 2007-2010. Beyond writing his
own music, Joey uses his talents to produce music for other artists on
the Nascent Republic label and beyond.
abilities are becoming more widely known around the world, as he was
chosen to be sponsored by Vic Firth drumsticks and Paul Reed Smith
guitars. He is also a featured artist on Matchless Music, an
music placement company, and has songs in rotation on iHeartRadio’s
New! Uncover and Discover station. Joey’s music was also chosen by
Pandora Internet Radio to have its own station. In
addition, his albums can be found on over 40,000 TouchTunes jukeboxes across the country.
Joey perform onstage makes one realize the difference between a regular
musician and a true artist. The passion he emits while playing makes
you appreciate the honesty behind every note.
honesty,” Joey maintains, “be it pretty or brutal, is something that’s
contagious. People dig that.” He concedes that he has no problem getting
onstage and bleeding for hours during a performance.
this type of rare quality that sets Joey apart from the majority of the
music industry today. His humble confidence and desire to stay true to
himself as opposed to what’s popular with the mainstream
is going to give him the longevity to stay in the spotlight as long as he desires.
Our Musical Moods will be also be featuring HIP POCKET as our main performer!
Here is what some locals are saying about Hip Pocket:
I wanted to send the bank a quick not to say how much we really enjoyed have Hip Pocket with us on our wedding day. You all were awesome! From shooting pool before the ceremony to the way ya'll kept everyone dancing all night long, I couldn't have asked for anything more. People are STILL talking about how great the bank was! On behalf of Britany and myself, thank you to all of Hip Pocket! You all are the perfect band for a perfect night. We hope that you had as much fun as we did, and look forward to seeing you all again soon. We're already working on trying to find another excuse to have you all back!
