The legendary Al Bruno stopped by to congratulate the
IT HAPPENS FROM TIME TO TIME...
So, JOE’S BOYS were walking down State Street in Albany last week - right by the Legislative Office Building - when PAUL McCARTNEY drove by, stopped his limo, waved and shouted to
But now, we’re having some major arguments about what, exactly, Sir Paul had to say to us. Here are just a couple of things that we’re sure Paul yelled out his window -
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! How’s the pizza at the “ORCHARD TAVERN?”
“HEY, MAESTRO! You gotta show me that bass line you run on “Twist and Shout!”
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! I need an opening act for Dodger Stadium on August 4th!”
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! YOU’RE SMARTER THAN WE WERE!”
“At least you’re playing OUTDOORS on the patio of “PHILLY’S” in Latham on Thursday and OUT IN THE INCREDIBLE BACKYARD of Albany’s landmark “ORCHARD TAVERN” on Friday!”
“We were stuck playing over 290 times down in a dinky Liverpool basement club called “THE CAVERN” for 3 straight years!”
“OK, OK, Richie. Baby, you can drive my car.”
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! Do YOU GUYS need an opening act at “PHILLY’S” on July 17?”
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! You guys start at 6:00 at “PHILLY’S?” Good!
Then I can get the EARLY BIRD SPECIAL!”
“HEY, HOLLYWOOD! Did I leave my guitar in your basement?”
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! You want HOW MUCH to sing on my next record?”
“We’ll see how good the fish and chips are at “THE ORCHARD TAVERN” on Friday, July 18!”
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! At “THE ORCHARD TAVERN,” are we splitting that SIX WAYS?”
“RICHIE, I just spoke with Dave Clark. He says he’s sorry you missed his call 52 years ago when he was looking for a sax player!
Dave sends his regards and hopes you’re “GLAD ALL OVER!”
“HEY, JOE’S BOYS! Meet me at my plane at Albany Airport at 10:00. We’ll grab some dinner. In Cannes.”
“Hey, JOE’S BOYS! Which way to “NIGHT MOVES?”
“HEY, LEGEND!” Here’s Ringo’s phone number. Give him a call. He’s got a dentist’s appointment on the 25th and needs a substitute! 011-44-20-ru4real.”
“What do you mean, you lost the master tapes to Sgt. Pepper that I lent you?”
“HEY, MAESTRO!” I’m getting the old band back together!
Have your people call my people!"

JOE’S BOYS AND “THE RUMBLE ON REMSEN STREET!”
SOMETHING SPECIAL'S HAPPENING AT SMITH’S OF COHOES!
THIS FRIDAY, APRIL 11 AT 8:00!
JOE’S BOYS ROCKS REMSEN ST. - AND SMITH'S OF COHOES!
So, last week, in between sets at the Klamsteam Tavern, the talk turned to cars - and to hear Joe and Richie talk, you might have thought that we were all back in high school, getting ready for the big dance!
“My wheels will absolutely blow the doors off of yours, Joe,” yelled Richie, as he was strapping on his tenor sax.
“Oh yeah? Eat my dust, Spike!” (Nice one, Joe. Pretty original!)
Well, it looks like these two might settle things THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, APRIL 11 - in downtown Cohoes!
JOE’S BOYS is going to try to close off Remsen Street about a half hour before we hit the stage at one of our favorite places to rock - the incomparable “SMITH’S OF COHOES” - 171 Remsen Street - otherwise known as “The Finish Line” for this grudge race!
Here are the guys, ready for “THE RUMBLE ON REMSEN ST.”
See you there! -
And inside “SMITH’S OF COHOES” at 8:00!
JOE’S BOYS ROCKS “SMITH’S OF COHOES!"
FRIDAY, APRIL 11 at 8:00!
171 REMSEN STREET - COHOES
But before we tell you all about the 'BOYS at the RUSTIC BARN -
Check out the story just below that will bring you up-to-date on everything that happened to the 'BOYS AND THEIR BANANA just a couple of days ago - IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC OF ALL PLACES!
Well, we kind of lost track of our banana boat - it just disappeared from the JOE’S BOYS WAREHOUSE a while back - and we had given up hope of ever riding on our yellow fruit frigate again - that is, until last week when Maestro, while walking along an incredible stretch of beach in beautiful Punta Cana, spotted our banana boat doing about 65 mph out in the Caribbean Sea with six thieves riding on the yellow peel!
Well, when these guys on our banana boat spotted Maestro running after them on the beach - they all jumped off and swam away in different directions! Maestro quickly put on his flippers and nose plug, swam out to the now pilotless banana boat, put the tow rope between his teeth, and then heroically swam to shore with the ‘BOYS’ banana boat following close behind!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
So, Maestro dragged our banana back to his hotel (oh, yeah, Carole and the kids were really thrilled to see this out in the hallway), then he deflated it and brought it as a carry-on on the plane home - and JOE’S BOYS has their banana boat back! And we’ll be riding it once again as soon as the temperature jumps, oh, about 50 degrees or so from what it is today!!!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
But, until then, we’re riding the JOE’S BOYS TOUR BUS just across the Hudson River to Troy’s amazing RUSTIC BARN this Friday, March 28 when the ‘BOYS bring their incredible “UMPTEENTH WILD WINTER TOUR” to a roaring close!

IT WAS A “JOE’S BOYS CHRISTMAS MIRACLE”
AT “SMITH’S OF COHOES” THIS PAST FRIDAY!
Everybody was in an incredible festive mood at Smith’s, dancing in the aisles and singing along with JOE’S BOYS - when it happened!
An older couple walked into Smith’s - had a drink or two at the bar - and then, of all things, whipped out about 50 copies of “The 12 Days Of Christmas” - passed them out to a bunch of the holiday revelers - and then disappeared into the night! Jimmy swears that the guy had a short white beard, a twinkle in his eye, and was wearing red socks… but we’ll never know!
Well, everybody at Smith’s was in the mood, so they gathered around Maestro’s keyboard - and, would you believe it, everybody in Smith’s sang “The 12 Days of Christmas” with Joe’s Boys!!!
Well, almost. You know something’s going to go screwy when Richie starts leading a singalong - and he didn’t disappoint us this time, either!

Joe’s Boys drummer, Steve "Legend" Colfer and his wife, Carm, just sheepishly reported that they fell asleep at the Saratoga Racino, and two hours after closing time, woke up to see this thing hovering right over them!
At first, poor Legend thought this was the gateway to heaven! When he regained full consciousness and realized that it wasn't a spaceship that came down to get him, he figured out what had occurred and simply summed it up by saying, "Lucky Joe" is usually how we describe how our Joe must feel playing with the 'Boys!
Oh, just kidding, Joe!

But, we’ve got to tell you, we’ve NEVER seen this go down on
the floor of a bar!
In the daytime, this woman is a distinguished CPA in one of
the Capital District’s largest accounting firms.
But, ten minutes after coming through the doors of the
Rustic Barn and listening to Joe’s Boys - this is what the
‘Boys’ music had her doing!
“There's Still Something About Smith's!"
JOE'S BOYS - A GREAT NIGHT AT

“There’s Something Special About Smith’s!"
It was an extraordinary night at the legendary SMITH’S OF
The place was packed for Joe’s Boys - and we put on a show
that everybody will be talking about for a long time! It’s
always great to see normally mild-mannered men and women
going nuts, dancing in the aisles and singing along with all the
songs that they loved when they were just a little younger!
This kind of stuff goes on time after time when Joe’s Boys
plays their special "Good Time Rock ‘n Pop!"
And we’ll be back at Smith’s in December!

JOE'S BOYS WELCOMES THE NEW PRESIDENT
OF THE JOE'S BOYS FAN CLUB!
THE HON. GERALD D. JENNINGS
Mayor of Albany, New York!
What a day it was for Joe's Boys! As you know, the 'Boys
were the headline musical performers at the always incredible
Hudson-Mohawk Marathon and Half Marathon, where
thousands of runners, friends and fans descended upon
Albany's Corning Preserve for the great festivities at the
And the 'Boys were honored to have Albany's Mayor Jennings
pay us a visit right by our stage just before showtime!
The Mayor is really into the music that the 'Boys play
practically every week for our friends and fans throughout
the Capital District (and beyond) - and we'll be bringing our
special brand of "good time rock 'n pop" to a great place
right near you real soon!
Check out some more scenes from the 'Boys' appearance at
the great Hudson-Mohawk Marathon and Half Marathon -

The "Fabulous Fall Fresh Air Gigs" of ours were outrageous!
And our friends and fans couldn't get enough of them!
Take a look at what went on on a THURSDAY night
around the warm firepit out on the incredible patio of the
MILL ON ROUND LAKE!
Kind of looks like a night in Paris!
P.S. Joe’s backyard will never be the same!
"SMITH'S OF COHOES!" "YANNI'S CUCINA!"
You all know that Joe’s Boys always step into their musical
timemachine everytime we go on stage - going back and forth
in time and space to the ‘50’s, the ‘60’s, ‘70’s before zapping
into the 21st Century - and even “traveling down the
Thruway” to visit recording artists on Manhattan’s Upper
East Side, Central Park West, and even Bay Ridge in
Well, Joe just did a no-no. He took the ‘Boys’ timemachine
for a spin on his own, twirling a bunch of dials, pushing
buttons like crazy, and didn’t even top off the tank before
he blasted off! He had no idea where he was headed for!
Serves Joe right! By the looks of this picture, Joe landed
a job playing accordion in the lobby of a hotel - in 1957 -
right near the Trevi Fountain in Rome!
Listen, do us a favor. If you see Joe in the next couple of
days, toss a few coins in his fedora – and tell him to get
back to the Capital District pronto! We have a gig this
Come Home From A Joe's Boys Gig?
Joe’s Boys' Guest Stars! What A Crew!
Adam, "Frank Sinatra III" - at the Van Schaick Country
Club, "The Guy With The Long Hair At Smith's" and so many
more "Joe's Boys Guest Artists" have given incredible (and
memorable) performances with the 'Boys throughout this past
BUT HERE ARE THE 'BOYS' FAVORITE GUEST STARS!
JOE'S BOYS LOVES KIDS!
Joe's Boys went to SPAC this summer to see the incredible
BEACH BOYS, who have been around just about as long as
Ever since, we've been playing a ton of Beach Boys tunes
during our current Summer Tour!
Er, do you think we've gotten carried away???
CATCH A WAVE WITH JOE'S BOYS!
You've read all about the numerous outside business interests
that Joe's Boys has gotten involved with in the past - the
parasailing school, the auto body shop, and even the
petrified creatures museum. Just scroll down to the bottom
of this page to bring yourself up to speed with those
But, that isn't enough for the 'Boys! Joe's Boys are
entrepreneurs of the highest order - and we want you to
be among the first to see what we're up to lately.
First of all - there's the energy industry - oil and natural
gas. Jimmy (Hollywood) Hyde brought this one to our
attention, and, boy, are we glad he did! So, we've invested
in an outstanding high tech petroleum products company, and
the new name of the company, as seen on the side of our
company's newest state-of-the-art transport vehicle, says it
We're getting into the restaurant business, too! Yeah, we
know that we have restaurants and bars all over the country
that serve as our unofficial clubhouses (read all about that
'way below) - but Joe's Boys is proud to be from the Capital
District, and we will never forget the people of this great
region that helped make us what we are today! So, in an
effort to give back, to create a terrific, comfortable place
where all of Joe's Boys fans can come with their families to
relax and eat in a beautiful, casual environment not far from
home - and to, perhaps, meet one or two of the 'Boys and
take a picture or two - here's a look at one of the first
photos of Joe's Boys' latest investment endeavor located on
Rt. 7 in nearby Latham - and we hope to see you there soon!
And here's a real treat! Whenever Joe's Boys is in town,
Joe, himself, will, most likely, be right there at the door to
greet you with his trademark, "GET OUTTA HERE!"
Wait a minute! Wait a minute!
Looks like Jimmy's been salting away his Joe's Boys earnings!
Hey, Hollywood! Who's your investment guy?
Joe's Boys are playing a ton of private events and holiday
parties in November and December!
But, don't worry! The 'Boys are playing at some great bars

"Ralph Will Be There To Show You His Moves!"
WOWIE! JOE'S BOYS PACKED THE PATIO!
These pics say it all!
Joe's Boys' Fans Come From All Walks Of Life! Everybody loves the 'Boys!
You know, we can't even begin to tell you guys the number of
times Joe's Boys is asked each week, "Hey, Joe's Boys! You
guys have been playing all over the place for soooo long!"
What keeps you guys going???
DOES THIS ANSWER YOUR QUESTION?
The more that Joe's Boys tours, we're finding that our fans
want more of us!
Lately, Maestro - Mike Bieber - has really had a rough time
getting around without being hounded by our fans!
Look - He simply went to Price Chopper last week for a loaf
of Wonder Bread and some salami - and here's just a sample
of what he was faced with - and this was just in the deli
Poor Maestro was a little under the weather the other day,
and went down to the Chelsea drugstore, to get his
prescription filled (how many of you recognize that line???)...
and, somehow, a couple of hundred girls heard about
him, made a bunch of signs and camped out in front of CVS
waiting for him to come out!
The last straw - and it was a shocker - was when Maestro
opened up his garage door early one morning to take out the
garbage, and was met with this -
Maestro's security people took care of this one pronto!
Maestro's a bit bewildered by all this attention, and it's
really thrown him for a loop!
He keeps walking around, asking anyone who will listen -
"WHERE THE HELL WERE THEY 45 YEARS AGO!!!"
MANY THANKS TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND FANS
WHO FOLLOWED US DOWN CENTRAL AVENUE TO
ALBANY'S LEGENDARY MECCA FOR GREAT LIVE MUSIC!
PAULY'S HOTEL WAS HOT!
It Was A Great Night For The 'Boys!
AND WE WON'T FORGET THIS ONE FOR A LONG TIME!
One Of The Greatest Nights In Joe's Boys History!
The 'Boys sounded incredible at Smith's of Cohoes!
There's something about this former 1920's speakeasy that
brings out the best in Joe's Boys - and everybody that
comes out to see us and have a great time!
Best of all - just look at this crowd! And this is just one
corner of the place! Ya think, maybe, the waiters had kind
of a tough time getting around this joint while the 'Boys
Our Friends And Fans At Smith's Are Among The BEST!
You've got to answer a question for us!
How does Willie always find out where we're playing???
We saw Joe doing a polka with half the crowd at our recent
gig at the Polish-American Club! Not a very pretty kielbasa!
Now, if Joe gets any ideas about doing a jitterbug at
Albany's Appletini's on Friday, May 18, Jimmy has used his
extensive "professional contacts" to make an advance
reservation at these "deluxe accommodations" where Doppler
Joe can "cool his heels" until Joe's Boys finish their show!
For the 3rd consecutive year, Joe's Boys was proud to be
the headline musical act at Michael's Banquet House where
they performed at the Annual Jazz/Rock Brunch that
generated thousands of dollars to benefit the Little Sisters
of the Poor and Our Lady of Hope - a wonderful senior
living and skilled nursing facility in Latham!
The 'Boys were, once again, joined by Julie Chapman, YNN's
co-anchor of Channel 9's morning newscast, who served as
the mistress of ceremonies at this huge Capital District
And the Little Sisters of the Poor, of course!
And now, Joe's Boys adds yet another well-known individual
who has become a huge fan of the band!
If you've been to Atlantic City - you know her and love her!
If you've seen her, you'll never forget her!
A fixture on the boardwalk of AC - she's one of a kind, an
incredible talent! Ladies and gentlemen, the world-renown...
"I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE JOE'S BOYS!"
Joe’s Boys knows that everybody loves our drummer
extraordinaire - Steve “The Legend” Colfer!!!
That’s why the ‘Boys are a bit mystified as to why we didn’t
receive an invitation from the Lake Placid Mayor’s Office
when they dedicated this beautiful park overlooking Mirror
Lake in “The Legend’s” name!
The invitation must still be in the mail!
Note to the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce: Move that
apostrophe over to the left a little bit to more properly
honor our 'Boy! Like one space over to the left!
Oh? What's that you say?
The park actually honors a bunch of guys that did some
heroic sports stuff in the town?
Oh yeah??? Why don't you tell us about it?
What's gone on in Lake Placid that could compare to doing 3
sets at Smith's in a spot big enough to handle only an
And then get up the next morning and perform at a bar
mitzvah for 400 people at The Waldorf Astoria?
Now, that's a story for the ages!

IN 4 HOURS AND 5 MINUTES!
Well, that's how long we played at the FINISH LINE of the
unbelievable Hudson-Mohawk River Marathon - right at the

It was great to see so many of you at the Marathon!
As you know, Joe's Boys was, once again, invited to be the
headline musical act at the terrific HUDSON-MOHAWK
RIVER MARATHON and HALF MARATHON!
Incredible weather, incredible finish line location at Albany's
Corning Preserve, and incredible people that volunteered and,
of course, ran, in this great Capital District event!
Here are a couple of super pics from the 'Boys' personal
photo album - just for you!
The crowds started lining up in the early morning at Albany's
Corning Preserve to catch a glimpse of Joe's Boys!
They used all kinds of modes of transportation to get to the
'Boys performance alongside the spectacular Hudson River!
Take a look!
You just never know who's going to show up at a Joe's Boys gig!
And you really never know what's going to happen at a Joe's Boys gig!
(That's the top of the 'Boys' music tent right behind the newlyweds!)
As usual, it was another incredible Joe's Boys performance!
A number of our fans had to be treated at the Medical Tent for physical and emotional exhaustion after going nuts watching the 'Boys do their thing throughout the afternoon!
Oh yeah. There was a race going on, too!
