Look for Joe Jucius and Evergreen to join forces and pay tribute to Neil Young on the Becket's patio (Sat Aug 3). Joe is also playing an acoustic tribute to Neil Young at Ground Round on River's Edge the same night.
Joe Marcinek (from Fresh Hops) can be spotted with Phocus at Peabody's Ale House on Fri Aug 2. If you don't know who these two Joe's are you are in for one hell of a treat.
FVDJA is throwing down mix-up, mash-up and pure insanity on the mixers, tables and controllers just about every where you can hear a beat.
