Joe Bithell, Jazz Singer
SILICON GULCH JAZZ BAND
The music is ageless. It reaches the soul.
Young and old alike delight in the melodic improvisations
of these talented musicians.
Joe's rich blues voice brings an added dimension
to the famous tunes that comprise their repertory.
And his washboard, down home style, and faithfulness to tradition
add fun to parties in venues big and small.
