I'm super excited to be opening for Gum and Ketchup and Mrs. Glass. I'll be playing at 9:00 pm. This show is free and ALL AGES.
I'll be playing from 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm. Mostly electronic/acoustic percussion music, although I may spice things up with some covers (that's right, I'll be SINGING). Pretty unique show, huh? Hope to see you there! -Joey

“Joey Scale, a one-man percussive maelstrom; a cerebrally-pointillistic performer who took Beale Street Tavern by surprise one Sunday night in August. (Joey) moves over the kit with that slow-mo, no-effort motion that all experts seem to have. Then he’ll burst out with a furious fill or a splash attack; then follow that with a beat change-up that completely reinterprets the piece he’s playing. And that’s how he touches base with your favorite genre at some point in the performance – rock, alt-rock, punk, funk, jazz, whatever – a quick change-up that surprises you with a familiar hook amongst the improvisation, nailed down with an almost-lazily performed precision. It’s heart-warmingly weird, this approach, and should you catch it, you’ll most certainly hear something you like. ”
