JoAnn Riedl coming up from Milwaukee

TONIGHT (Friday, the 22nd) Stumpjack Coffee will be the place to be if you're in the mood for some high energy tunage. JoAnn Riedl, along with Jeannie Mayotte, is traveling from Milwaukee to perform here at 7:00pm.

Here's the brief press release we sent out, and thanks again to the Herald Times Reporter for printing this and all the other announcements of great stuff going on in the area. (And did you catch the fine article on our boy Kerry Michaels in today's Weekend Edition?)

JoAnn Riedl's deep, sultry vocals and percussive, rock-guitar style hails from Milwaukee, WI. JoAnn is a singer-songwriterwho combines folk, punk and rock into her at times gentle yet aggresive performances. Playing since 1998, Riedl performs solo a nd at times with backing bands, Kicked Out Scout and The Relief. She is also a front woman for The Barrettes, a four-piece girl band. JoAnn has performed several times in Canada, Ireland, and throughout the U.S. and has shared stages with many talented musicians along the way.

"She wages love and war on her guitar and explores issues that are as heavy as steel-toed boots, including the environment, sexism and revolution." -- Molly Snyder Edler,
