Jay Hoad US Tour Arrives on East Coast for August Shows

Jay Hoad and his band will be bringing their brief USA tour to Delaware for three shows during the month of August, beginning with a performance at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth Beach this Saturday night, August 7.

Many Delawareans will recall the summer of 2007 when dreadlocked Australian Jay Hoad first arrived on the local scene performing his unique brand of world music. Fast forward to three years later following repeat tours of the USA, Australia, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and Canada, a successful CD release and the creation of an independent record label, Walkaboutfish Records. The band passed on a 2009 USA tour while Hoad returned to Australia to record his upcoming second CD and further develop his multi-instrument solo show.

Fans attending the Delaware shows will hear the evolution of a gifted songwriter and talented musician as he furthers his sonic palette with new musical creations and an ever enlarging stable of unique instruments. The all original shows will feature selections from Hoad's acclaimed debut LP "Warmth In The White" as well as from his newly completed LP, which is to be released in mid 2011.

In addition to the Dogfish Head show the band will be giving a free concert of Hoad's original music at Killens Pond State Park on August 13. On August 27 the band will perform for a unique one-off jazz and blues themed show at Bethany Blues in Lewes as part of Sydney's Music Revival series.
