How YOU doin’?
Last year, New Jersey native, Austin, TX based singer/songwriter/all around great guy Mike June appeared in Winnipeg alongside the legendary Jon Dee Graham. Truth be told, we would have let Jon Dee bring just about anyone along, because were so excited to have him. I was too busy dreaming of how to become pals with Jon Dee to really do much homework finding out about this Mike June guy. That allowed me to have one of the most pleasant surprises of the year, because Mike turned out to be absolutely fantastic! With a quick wit, an undeniable charm, and a list of powerful and amazing songs, Mike won us over, and how. I couldn’t wait to see more of Mike.
(psssssttt… Did you miss last year’s show? Want to relive it? Here, check this out!
Well, earlier this year he posted that he was going to be doing shows in the “upper midwest,” and asked if anyone wanted to put a show together. I have no clue where the “upper midwest” is, but I know that we’re definitely upper, and west seemed about right, so I chimed right in and got to work trying to bring last year’s sensation back to town. I thought that, for once, I’d throw Stu Reid a bone (I’ve picked up more than a few tasty scraps from my old pal over the years) and ask him to maybe host a show too. He hesitated.
Then the bombshell dropped, and Stu’s tune changed mighty quickly. Turns out, Mike June is bringing someone along, too. Once again, he could have invited that Nickelback douche for all I care, so long as he came back to town and played some songs again. Turns out, we got a MUCH better deal!
Joining Mike on this portion of the tour, and in life, is the fabulously talented Jess Klein! Jess was a folk fest sensation when she appeared here in 2000 and 2003. I was a huge fan from the get-go, and I’ve followed her career ever since. I never in my wildest dreams imagined that this powerful singer/songwriter who blew everyone away at The Folk Festival would someday play in my living room.
Dreams do come true!
