You will want to see this act live! They will make you feel like you are sitting right in their living room sharing stories--except set to music and some of the most creative rhymes you've ever heard. Some of the stories will be about Jimmy Joe's uncle who was inducted into the race car hall of fame, or a mango eating man whose life is saved by his culinary tastes, or an acupuncture waltz. You'll want to see and hear Jimmy Joe's spontaneous guitar licks for yourself. You will be impressed with his playing, whether it be Chet Atkins style solos or Johnny Cash licks or fancy Brazilian tunes. You will enjoy the vocal harmonies and fun banter that the couple performs. You'll definitely be inspired to laugh, and don't be surprised if you are inspired to get up and dance!
