Jay Johnson & Joe Pat Hennen
Doors at 4pm, Show starts at 5.
Jay Johnson is a multi-genre, multi-award winning singer/songwriter. Jay was voted Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2005 Texas Music Awards in which he and his band at the time received the most nominations (6) in the history of the show, including Song, Album, Musician and Entertainer of the Year. He was also selected as a Regional Finalist in the 2004 Sony/USA Network Nashville Star TV Show and currently has several of his songs being considered for placement in upcoming film and television shows. This 18-yr veteran performer self-released 3 albums in 7 years (all received statewide, regional and international airplay) while sharing the stage with such talent as Jackson Browne, Pat Green, Willie Nelson, Charlie Robison, Jack Ingram, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Steven Fromholtz, Gary P. Nunn and countless others. Several of Jay's songs have been re-released by fellow songwriters as well. Johnson's style of writing is as diverse and all encompassing as the writer himself and his writing savvy has been compared to James Taylor, The Black Crowes, Neil Young, Jackson Browne & Townes Van Zandt.
Whether playing with his edgy, veteran band or doing an acoustic show with wife Susie, Joe Pat Hennen touches audiences with extraordinary songs. Hennen has played such diverse venues as the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Fort Worth Scott Theater with Guy Clark, Mike Hearne's Big Barn Dance in Taos, New Mexico, the Terlingua World Championship Chili Cook Off, the Carbondale Colorado Mountain Festival... to the now gone, legendary hole-in-the-wall Leta's in the Fort Worth Stockyards District. His five albums are played internationally and Hennen is always looking ahead to new and different music to create and venues to play. Hennen has appeared at the Denton Jazz Fest, the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Fort Worth Main Street Arts Fair, House Concerts and Club Venues throughout the Southwest, and some limited East Coast shows. In the past couple of years, Joe Pat has focused most of his attention on his hometown music scene of Denton, Texas as an artist in residence at Dan's Silverleaf Tavern in Denton. As of late, for some new direction, Joe Pat has teamed up with seasoned music veterans from the Denton scene and some Brave Combo members to form The Indusrial Street Jug Band.
