Rockwoods presents Original Folk Rocker "The Wrong Omar" Thursday May 22nd as part of their Bluegrass Thursdays Series. 7:00-10:00 P.M.
Singer/Songwriter Joey Shaheen aka "The Wrong Omar" continues his "Sled Dawg Slushy" tour in support of his 2014 release: "Zemblanity". This full band show includes from the Cities: Bob Groethe, Tom Hels and Chuck Gordon plus special guests to be announced as they walk up!
"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.
