This is a soul revue show for Joe's Cafe that will absolutely delight and hold sway for those who know these songs well and haven't heard them played live in a long time if ever. This sound is distinctive American gold and treasured throughout the world. In St. Louis sometimes we forget how lucky we are to have this tradition right in our own backyard. Joe's Cafe brings the sounds of Gene Jackson and Eugene Johnson to it's stage this summer. (Roland Johnson may join as well!) This will be a very special evening to say the least. Living legends coming to delight us! Below are reviews and web links that can inform and excite the masses!
"In Johnson and Jackson, he found two veteran singers who remained criminally undiscovered outside of their local market.
Listeners are treated to a wide-ranging program that samples the sounds that once rang out of Detroit, down to Memphis, and finally Muscle Shoals, AL."
