Besides his ongoing gig at the Old Town Tavern, he's added two dates at Borders Books on State Street in Santa Barbara, where he'll be performing with Black Angel, an exciting, fun group that plays good time Rock 'n Roll. What better way to spend a Saturday and Sunday afternoon than hanging at the beach, enjoying a tall cold one in a sidewalk cafe, and then listening to some great music.
Plan to be there!
HERE'S THE LINEUP:
Ernie Joseph: Lead guitar and lead vocals
Audrey Turner (wife of Ike Turner): Lead vocals
Ronnie Turner (son of Ike and Tina Turner): Bass guitar
Cory Orosco: Keyboards and vocals
JC Martin: Guitar and lead Vocals
Tina Stephens: Drums and vocals

King's House of Blues, Paladino's, S.I.R. Showcase, as well as the Coach House in San Capistrano.
