Jerry Joseph Live Recording Announced

Virginia City, Montana at Bandito's - August 28-30, 2009

Jerry Joseph

Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons featuring Jerry Joseph (guitar/vocals), JR Ruppel (bass/vocals) and Steve Drizos (drums) will make their triumphant return to Bandito's in Virginia City, Montana on August 28-30, 2009 for three shows! This year the band will be doing something special, as they plan to record the run of shows for the next Jerry Joseph & Jackmormons live release Live @ Bandito's. A lot more details will be announced soon, but all audio and video recording of these shows will be prohibited. Located in historic Virginia City, Montana, Bandito's restaurant has been at home in the beautiful Wells Fargo Building since May 1999. Owners Amy and Scott Kelley, along with their top-notch staff, are known throughout the Northern Rockies for creating a place that not only serves up some of the finest food in southwestern Montana but legendary good times as well. Bret Mosley will be opening the Friday night show (8/28) and the Secret Powers will be opening on Saturday (8/29). Online tickets are available NOW!

It seems appropriate that Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons follow up their last live album, 2002's Mouthful of Copper, recorded in Butte, MT, with a live album from Bandito's in Virginia City, MT (another historic Montana mining town). Home of the largest placer gold discovery in America and the one time capitol of Montana, Virginia City truly was and is the wild, wild West. They hung the sheriff from his own gallows, Calamity Jane was a snot nosed kid on the streets, vigilantes took the law into their own hands and strung up their neighbors, fortunes were made and lost here... change the name of Virginia City to Deadwood and you've got a hit TV series on your hands.

If you've been lucky enough to catch a Jerry Joseph show at Bandito's over the past five years, then you already know about the magic that the building evokes from the band as well as the unique Montana vibes that the city emanates. Don't miss your chance to be a part of an historic live recording in one of the most distinct historic towns in the world.
