"What makes Big Joe So Big?"

     "What makes Big Joe so big?  For sure he's a big talent.  Why does every venue in The Valley want Joe Fitz on their stage?  Because he's more than an entertainer, not just a pretty face with a harp in his mouth, not just a first class purveyor of the blues and roots tradition.  It's his soul, large, wide, real, and molasses sweet.  That's what attracts people.  He's one of those rare folks who you feel you are "in the presence of" and better off for it.  He isn't just singing for us.  He sings to the spirit that moves within him, this gentle man."      - Cafe Guide

Tax Day Dance Party

Rosendale Theatre, 408 Main Street, Rosendale NY 12472

The name Big Joe Fitz has been synonymous with soulful music in New York’s Hudson Valley for more than 30 years and there’s a very good reason for that. When you see Big Joe Fitz & The Lo-Fi’s in performance not only will you experience outstanding musicianship and an eclectic playlist that ranges from Bobby Bland to Johnny Mercer to Ernest Tubb and beyond, but you will be entertained by a live show that is always warm, always engaging, and always fun. Big Joe and the fellas love what they do, and they do it very well indeed.

Come on out for great music, company, and food and drink served in Uncle Tony’s Tavern! We can’t wait to join you on the dance floor to dance away the tax day blues!

This event is produced by Mark Morgenstern, owner and music booker extraordinaire of the Rosendale Cafe. Mark is on the Board of Advisors of the Rosendale Theatre Collective.
