The Elk River Independence Day Committee presents Original Folk Rocker "The Wrong Omar", full band show, Thursday July 4th 6:00PM
Singer/Songwriter Joey Shaheen aka "The Wrong Omar" continues his "Sled Dawg Slushy" tour in support of his recent release: "Shoot Up The Town". This full band show features from the Cities: Bob Groethe, Tom Hels and Chuck Gordon plus a special guest appearance by Jim Benelisha, a cellist from Johnson City TN.
"The Wrong Omar" has been touring the US, singing "sidewalk confessionals of bad choices" with a tongue-in-cheek curmudgeon persona for old souls of all ages. This full band show follows a string of radio and TV performances throughout the Southeast and Mid-West. Soulful work on the piano leads to a set of guitar/harp and foot tambo songs that can be best described as: "crying tears of joy while making love". You might also laugh yourself silly with some of his stories. Be warned: you may walk away with these tunes stuck in your head, and you will be encouraged to sing along at times too.
The Wrong Omar presents a night of roots/folk/rock with blues harp, stories and rock&roll aphorisms.
The Wrong Omar has performed Live on: KUMD(Duluth), WDVX(Knoxville), KDTR(Missoula), KMSU(Mankato), WTIP(Grand Marais), WETS(Johnson City), WGNW(Asheville).
He has appeared in concert with: RB Morris, Daphne Willis, Hamilton Loomis, Della Mae and Monroe Crossing.
