A Fourth of July Celebration Concert with Dave Jordan and the NIA ft. Joint Point
The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents A Fourth of July Celebration Concert with Dave Jordan and the NIA ft. Joint Point live in concert on Monday, July 4 at 8:00 p.m., doors at 7:00 p.m. at the historic Sheridan Opera House.
A nearly 3 decade staple of the New Orleans and south Louisiana music scene, Dave has been described as a swampy lovechild of Tom Petty, John Prine and Dr. John and “the personification of the New Orleans ethos”. His music freely flows between New Orleans funk, Americana roots, and rock and roll, all with a jamband sensibility, defying genre and categorization.
His touring band, dubbed the Neighborhood Improvement Association, is a rotating cast of some of New Orleans’ finest rock, blues and funk musicians, as well as regional musicians he’s collaborated with over the course of his travels. The current tour features guitarist Gregory “Wolf” Hodges, who performed for many years with the legendary Col. Bruce Hampton; Jordan’s longtime bassist Will Repholz; violinist James Hausman; and Telluride’s own, drummer Allen “Booradley”.
Joint Point is an American jam band that formed in Telluride when founding members Jeff Haldeman (acoustic guitar, vocals) and Stuart Sundell-Norlin (lead guitar, vocals) discovered they had musical chemistry. From the beginning the band has played interesting covers, songs by popular jam bands, and rock solid originals. Some of their new material reflect the influence of drummer Casey Yorkunas, bassist Joel Waller, and recent addition Paul Cooper on keyboards.
