JOE'S TRUCK STOP
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Joes-Truck-Stop
"Conceived at a greasy spoon...we play the kind of music that makes you wanna cut a rug.."
Joe's Truck Stop officially formed this summer when four students of Berklee College of Music spent the summer traveling up and down the east coast, attending oldtime stringband conventions and bluegrass festivals. At the last festival of the summer, the 75th Anniversary Galax Old Fiddlers Convention, Joe's Truck Stop placed in the top 15 oldtime stringbands, a huge honor in the world of traditional music. Having received this accepting nod from the elders of the community who mentored the band, Joe's Truck Stop now presents to you their years of dedication to Appalachian culture through their raucous, fast-paced, up-tempo dance music that will make you want to throw on your dancing boots and make you wish you were down home again!



Doors 7:30, Concert 8:00.
Suggested donation $10, $6 students.
