Eau Claire, WI
This weekend we're very pleased to be welcoming back to the Rookery a crowd pleasing performer who first found his way to our outdoor music stage last summer.
Davey J is a 20-year veteran on the creative music scene in Wisconsin and Minnesota. His live shows feature down-home singing and songwriting and a very distinctive sound of acoustic-electric guitar that everyone in the house can feel. His musical repertoire ranges from blues to rock and roll, reggae, and roots music. As I recall Davey began his first set last summer with songs from the likes of Roy Orbison and by the end of the afternoon had segued all the way to Led Zeppelin!
Davey J performs all over Western Wisconsin, often with his blues-rock combo, The Jones Tones. Earlier this year he released his fifth music CD, Visions: Vintage Tracks. In addition to his music gigs, Davey holds down a day job as Associate Professor of English and Women's Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
As always the Rookery grill fires up at 1:30 and the music begins at 2. There's no cover charge though gratuities for the musicians are most appreciated.
