Joe 2.0
Jul 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Joe 2.0

JOE 2.0 – Joe 2.0 Homepage (joe20.com)

JOE 2.0 was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2011, by violinist, Joseph Ketchum.

JOE 2.0 was formed to see if a string quartet could play
rock and pop music in a powerful and non-lame way.

JOE 2.0 is comprised of an electrified string quartet (2 Violins, Viola, and Cello),
plus drums and the inimitable vocals of original “Cheap Trick” lead singer, Xeno.

JOE 2.0 uses painstakingly crafted analogue effects on the strings to emulate the sounds of
electric guitar, keyboards, bass, horns, and other things.

JOE 2.0 blends these sounds with the natural sound of the strings,
creating a rock/pop sound with a symphonic power to it.
It’s like a rock band and orchestra had a baby, and they called it “JOE 2.0”.

A “Rockestra” if you will, good citizen.

JOE 2.0 sometimes let’s Xeno play guitar so his hands don’t get too fidgety,
but for the most part, JOE 2.0 does not condone or allow the use of fretted instruments.
JOE 2.0 makes a few exceptions only for Xeno.

JOE 2.0 performs a wide variety of cover songs from many genres and eras.

Some of the songs are very pretty and intricate and elegant.
Some of the songs are savage and raucous and loud.
All of the songs are special in their own way, just like you, citizen.

Artists covered include but are not limited to:
The Beatles, The White Stripes, Gary Puckett, Antonio Vivaldi, Elvis,
The Who, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Green Day, James Brown, etc.

JOE 2.0 has 6 members.  Joseph Ketchum and Xeno are two of them.

You can get to know the other members by sending JOE 2.0 a message or coming to a show.
You can try to use a medium or psychic to learn more names and info,
but unless they are a JOE 2.0 fan or friend, they won’t be able to help you.
Better to get your truth from the source.

Messaging JOE 2.0 or attending a JOE 2.0 is also a good way
to find out why JOE 2.0 is named “JOE 2.0”.

JOE 2.0 is not afraid of the robots.

JOE 2.0 will protect citizens who request protection from the robots.

When that time comes.

JOE 2.0 thanks you for your patronage.

Current Projects:

Sound System Upgrade. It’s fantastic!!

We have upgraded the sound system for our shows. We acquired a state of the art digital system to enhance the experience at the bandshell.

This is a unique opportunity for a sponsor(s) to  have the naming rights for the sound system for a period of time to be discussed. Each performance, each notice sent out, each program guide, and each social media posting will include the named sound system for the sponsor.

This is a projected $25K expenditure that will give us and the sponsor a long term benefit.

Please contact us directly when you are interested.
