About the Event
Joe Oeser was born in Chicago and from an early age was heavily influenced by The Windy City’s blues, folk, jazz, R&B, and funk scene. Starting his musical career in Chicago’s clubs and festivals, Joe lived and breathed the city culture which serves as the foundation of his art to this day.
After moving to Colorado in the mid 1970’s, Joe was immediately welcomed into the music community with his Chicago Style folksy blues. Not long after, Joe was signed to a major recording label and a world-wide management team where he toured extensively and graced the stage with a variety of national talent such as Journey, Hall and Oates, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Emmylou Harris, Tanya Tucker, Marcia Ball, and more!
In 1996, as a collaboration between Joe and fellow musicians, he produced The Cup-a-Jo Band. Comprised of some of the best regional talent, the Cup-a-Jo band was able to quickly establish themselves as one of the top billing acts in the area. Fast forward to the 2020’s, Joe took advantage of the “downtime” COVID provided and wrote and produced his first solo project and sixth album release. As an Americana Blues singer/songwriter, Joe’s raw vocals, street wise lyrics and polished guitar playing, absolutely shine and capture the essence of his background and musical identity.
Those of you who have been in Colorado for a while have probably caught a glimpse or have listened to Joe as his recents performances include KRFC 88.9 Live A Lunch, Taste of Colorado, Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, KAFM 88.1 Live @ The Radio Room, Botanic Gardens, Cedaredge Applefest, Breckenridge Brewery, KUVO 89.3 Live on the Air, Blue and BBQ for Better Housing, along with venues up and down the front range.
