JJ Sansaverino LIVE @ HOME Restaurant Branford, CT Presented by Blue Plate Radio

Craig,

Hope you're well!

JJ is coming to Branford on Saturday, June 8. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and they can be purchased at http://jjathome.eventbrite.com. Seating is limited. I can try and group 6 or more together if I know in advance that you're coming. Hotel space in Branford that weekend is limited. I can try and work out something with one of the locals or suggest a place in New Haven which is only 10-15 minutes west of Branford and on the way back to NYC. See you Saturday at the Houndstooth!

Here's the rest of the info from my FB posting:

Over the past several years, guitarist Joe "JJ" Sansaverino has reached millions with his music, touring the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia, the South Pacific, and the Caribbean. He has worked with the best in the business in a wide range of idioms, both live and in the studio, and has appeared on hundreds of recordings. An accomplished composer, arranger, and musical director, Sansaverino was playing trumpet and violin by age 11 and the guitar by age 13. Growing up in and around New York, his diverse influences - Santana, Hendrix, as well as jazz, Motown, and doo-wop - helped mold his unique style.

After performing locally in NYC for several years in the early '90s, he embarked on his first European tour with the popular alternative rock band Heads Up. Upon returning to the U.S., he attended Berklee College of Music, graduating in 1994. Relocating to New York, he began performing nightly, quickly earning a reputation as one of the hardest-working musicians on the scene. It wasn't long before he started appearing and recording with artists like George Clinton, Kelly Price, SuperCat, Shabba Ranks, Monty Alexander, the Jungle Brothers, Rita & Ky-Mani Marley, and Toots and the Maytals, and recording TV jingles. He eventually settled in as the lead guitarist for Maxi Priest in 2000, immediately embarking on the first of several world tours. In 2005, he released a stunning collection of his original compositions titled "Sunshine After Midnight." Together with his band Nu Jazz, he continues to perform in support of his current single "Gravy Train" while simultaneously getting ready for the release of his forthcoming sophomore album, "Waiting for You."
