J is for Joseph


These three sisters from Portland, Oregon once again bring female representation to the challenge. I had the immense pleasure of hearing a live performance of “White Flag” early one Sunday morning and knew they had to be included in this. Their harmonizing blew me away. Also of note, Joseph isn’t the only folk act making an appearance (See Dawg Yawp under D). Am I mellowing as I age? Maybe a little, but I still listen to Marilyn Manson on a regular basis.




My fake band Jam Joy changed their name from Joy Jam as a self deprecating joke. The original salacious pun got switched when fifteen years at small venues failed to produce any studio interest. These aging artists insist they will continue to jam live for their loyal fans as long as they are able to stand upright and play. They sound a little like Cute Is What We Aim For.

    1. Wow! I'm sure it's a bittersweet experience. Writing about a lead guitarist, my stories set in the mid 1990's, I should ask for an interview of you both. ~grin~ Happy Blogging!

  5. I was hoping for J. Geils band because he just passed away. Your choice is a good one though.

    1. I was sorry to hear about that. The reason I didn't honor him is because WNKU doesn't play that music (sad to say). I'll be sure to honor the band by adding one of their songs in my fake piece one day. Thanks for the idea and the kind word.
