I’m back in NYC after an amazing tour in South Africa. My first time back since childhood, it was an experience I will never forget. Great shows, great new friends and fans and traveling in a country that has changed massively since I was there last as a boy. Politically, it’s tough… High unemployment, high crime and corruption. However, the people of South Africa are fighting hard in whatever way they can to make their country a better place to live and work in. I posted a lot of photos on my Instagram which anyone can access by going to www.instagram.com/jannklose and a tour retrospective video will be posted to my YouTube channel in the coming days. You can access it by going to www.youtube.com/jannklose.
Coming up, I’m playing shows in New York City, New Jersey and Pennsylvania: B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on Monday, November 2nd (opening for The Yardbirds!) and one of my favorite NJ venues, Cozy Cabin Concerts on November 7th, which will sell out, definitely get your tix in advance.
I’m planing a trip to Nashville and Florida later part of the month, please let me know if you’d like to book me for a house concert. Then, this December I am joining my good friend, Annie Haslam and members of classical rock group Renaissance for her Christmas shows at the Sellersville Theater on December 19th and 20th.
This January I’m back in Germany for a short tour! The great Kukuun Club has re-opened on the famous Reeperbahn and I’m thrilled to play a show there on Saturday, January 9th… More dates below!
Also in January, STEREOPTICON will see the light of day at last! My side project with Grammy® winning guitarist Gary Lucas is in the can and will be available through the Cosmic Trigger label.
My dear friend Ann Hampton Callaway and I wrote a new song together that she has been performing at her recent shows in NYC and Chicago. It’s called FULL MOON LOVE and I really think it came out great. You can watch a fan video at this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NzelZG-y-g
My team and I are now booking for 2016! Please let me know where you’d like me to come play! Let’s set up some house concerts while we’re at it.
