You’ll want to make your way to Chicago…

…on Monday May the 7th. Stop in at the Oak Brook Barnes & Noble to meet up with Joseph Leo Bwarie and hear the interesting backstory on the making of his outstanding debut album — Nothin’ But Love (VS review here.)

JBL stars as Frankie Valli in the touring edition of the Jersey Boys musical and he’s about halfway through his run at Chicago’s Bank Of America Theatre (finishes up June 3). He’ll be taking time out from his crazy schedule for a “meet and greet” and Nothin’ But Love CD signing.

The hoedown will include a Q&A session where Joseph will discuss his collaboration with the great Charlie Calello (producer/arranger) and what it was like to work with legendary musicians Paulinho da Costa and Bucky Pizzarelli.

This is a great opportunity…

Monday May 7. Joseph Leo Bwarie will speak at 7:45 (~30 minutes followed by Q&A)


JLB will be handing out cool Nothin’ But Love T-shirts (I know they’re cool because I have one 🙂 ) for those that purchase his CD at the event.

Go meet Joseph…

…buy a CD and get him to sign it, or your new cool JLB T-shirt!

Yea, I know this comes across as pure promotion on my part, but this kid is the real deal. You better catch up to him now because someday he’s going to go all “Bublé” on us …limos … big security team … only playing the giant arena’s.

Now is the time to meet him … when you can chat him up like, I don’t know, a normal person. I was hoping to be there myself but can’t make it after all. When you see him (you are going, right?) say “hi” to him for me.
