USA tour update

Having a fantastic time on the East Coast of America and making many new fans whilst performing heaps of solo shows as well as duo and trio shows with some of the U.S. Jay Hoad Band members; especially getting lots of assistance from my U.S. manager, Jim.
We're getting ready for our full band debut extravaganza a bit later this summer - stay tuned!

Press excerpt (edited) that accompanied this photo:
"...Jay is a most unusual musician as he plays a variety of instruments including guitar, lap steel Dulcimer, another lap steel on which his slide technique was superb, percussion, harmonica and an instrument native to his country, the didgeridoo. Keeping all that going while looping background parts and working a foot bass beat is just amazing. I heard him play with two members of his full band that he hooks up with when he’s in the States last Saturday at Davey Jones Locker Room. Jim Miller played trumpet and Dean Haemel played percussion. The full six-piece band includes these three plus full drums, sax and even a belly dancer. Jay will be playing all over the region in the next eight weeks so check jayhoadband.com or this paper for upcoming dates." (-the Coconut Times)
