In 2017 this show was totally sold out and people clamored for more. So, we're going to do it again almost to the day! In the cold of winter Feysa warms us up. Last year she sang in English, Turkish, French and another language I forgot. (Spanish?) Anyway, she is an international star and loves to play Joe's. There is a lot of history between Feysa and Joe's and we are excited to have her back!
