Rachel and I had a band in Nashville with some wonderful musician friends. Calling ourselves The Joiners, we made two albums and a single that are now streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and all of your other favorite places to discover music. Go check it out and listen to our Nashville selves.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Saturday night’s live stream! It was a roaring success and we really enjoyed everyone’s participation in the discussion section during the show. We will definitely be doing something again soon, so stay tuned! Meanwhile, here is a streamlined copy of the set with the silence edited out of the beginning. Don’t forget to subscribe to the John Thursday YouTube channel while you are there, and thank you for watching!
If you’d like to tip the band, click the PayPal button above or use Venmo @TMJoiner. While it is appreciated, it is definitely not required as we know most everyone is facing uncertain times and we are here just to provide a little distraction from things.
Here’s a picture of The Joiners playing Dino’s Bar on Gallatin Ave. in East Nashville. We were the house band at Dino’s for a bit, playing every other weekend (when there wasn’t a NASCAR race on the TV). Back then we were a three piece, with the incomparable Joe Bidewell on the bass and harmonica and Rachel on the drums. Living in Music City and playing regular gigs at the local dive bar was my own version of living the dream. It was tons of fun and we were surrounded by so many great musicians and great friends. We’re really looking forward to playing all the old songs tomorrow night and hope to see everyone there!
