Just five months after releasing his latest album The Good, The Bad, The Sexy, American musician Joe is making his way to Kenya for the first time to perform at the first Tusker Lite concert this year.
Penned for March 31 and sponsored by Tusker Lite, Joe will come to Nairobi with an 8-member band.
“June Gachui will be the opening act, and singer Donell Jones’ DJ, Jaytech, will also keep the crowd revved up in between performances,” says Somoina Kimojino-Kwikiriza, Programmes Controller at 98.4 Capital FM.
“Joe is only the first of several artists lined up this year. It’s about good music and good fun, and that is what this concert promises.”
Somoina says the venue will be spruced up to enhance the lounge feel and make patrons comfortable for their listening pleasure.
Joe Thomas, who shot to fame with the title track of his then album All That I Am in 1997, has been busy since then, recording a total of 9 studio albums.
The 39 year old musician is still singing about love and is still deftly incorporating acoustic guitar in soothing tunes with his latest album, which went to the #2 spot at the BillBoard RnB charts.
The Good, The Bad, The Sexy is slightly more assertive and fast paced, but definitely has Joe Thomas written all over it.
Thomas, whose parents are both preachers, caused a good stir when one of his singles last year (Closer) featured in a compilation CD called Sacred Love Songs II by Bishop TD Jakes.
Tickets to see Joe and be part of the Tusker Lite experience are retailing at Sh3,000.
