John will perform songs from "Rodeo" for "Soup to Nuts Live!" with local musicians Jeff Reid (rhythm guitar), Roger Cook (bass) and Jim Ellis (piano). If you are not familiar with the format, here is the description from WHQR's website: Soup to Nuts on-air host George Scheibner will interview the performers during breaks in the show. You'll hear the music and find out about the artists who create it, while the performance is recorded live for future broadcast on WHQR. The atmosphere is charged with excitement, and the ambience is simply unmatched -- there's no other venue like it in the Port City.
If you would like to join the party celebrating the release of "Rodeo," please contact me, as space is limited. We'll play the CD, share some snacks, toast some fine friends and musicians, then perform songs from the record. Fun!
John will be singing originals and surprising covers from the likes of Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon and Tom Waits. There is an open wine tasting with real glasses and some pretty sexy craft beer.
John will be playing with End of the Line trio, which includes mandolin player Sean Gould and dobro/banjo player Perry Hewlett.
Enjoy the open wine tasting or grab a craft beer and listen to John play originals and off-the-beaten-path covers (Tom Waits, anyone?).

"It’s hard to believe this is Fonvielle’s first solo record. It carefully and elegantly tugs at the heartstrings while encouraging the mind to wander, his voice a patient mix of wear and tear and gentle optimism. There are themes of love, loss and hard-earned wisdom expressed on Rodeo, an album whose title in one word sums up the chance and calamity of life itself."
