Joey Only Live in Concert 8 pm
DR.JOEY ONLY and JOEY ONLY OUTLAW BAND
The all new Outlaw Band can be found at their home, the Wells Hotel on any given weekend with Sean Scallion, Ed Hanrahan, Leah Martin and Joey Only fronting the show. The new line-up is as hot as any the Outlaw Band has ever had! The buzz is back and already Joey is finding himself in much demand. Adding to the available show this year was Joey’s new Stompin Tom Tribute Act.
Joey Only has played 1000 shows in 10 provinces and some territories in Canada, and is destined to be a Canadiana Country classic. He’s a social outlaw and a political radical, a mountain man, a goldminer, a father, a husband and always has his wife Ms.Leah Martin on stage. Mostly he just wants to kick ass when showtime arrives using his unique cross-over of Waylon style outlaw-country pickin and down home Stompin Tom attitude towards all things Canadiana.
He can play you hours of songs about life in the north, including many of the Canadiana Classics. He’s released 5 recordings including the album Transgression Trail which topped the Canadian College and Independent radio charts in 2010, the same album with the song Greyhoundin Guitar Man which CBC Radio 3 voted one of the most Canadian songs of the year. The Joey Only Outlaw Band was his force to be reckoned with, an allstar band that couldn’t last forever as Zinger and Steener joined Fred Eaglesmith, Rowan formed the infamous Creaking Planks, Kenan’s band High Society was a hit and Jeff Andrew a sensational and recognized songwriter of his own calibre. Nonetheless that band played 400 of the craziest country shows western Canada ever saw touring with bands from all over the world here in the Great White North. They were relentless in their touring and playing, rarely taking a set break and rockin hard all night.
Today Joey Only lives in Wells British Columbia, 4000ft up where the Quesnel Highlands meet the Cariboo Mountains. There he’s worked in gold mines and the back country of Provincial Parks, renovated the Outlaw Mountain Lodge in time for it’s Artswells Festival bonfires and started a real family. Despite surviving tuberculosis, tornadoes, lightning strikes, imprisonment, bear attacks, accidents, thousands of gigs, working at InSite, punk rock, fights, fatherhood and marriage…and not trying too hard these days to be anything in the publics eye…Joey and Leah will still give you an ass kickin, full throttle, professional outlaw country show any day you wanna pay em!
