Phil Joel Bio:
For over 17 years, New Zealander Phil Joel has been a mainstay in Contemporary Christian music with his upfront role as bass player and vocalist for the Newsboys along with the music of his six solo CDs. January 07’ marked a new chapter for Phil after announcing he would be stepping out of the band after thirteen years to focus on new music that would serve to support his growing desire for more hands on ministry.

Whether with his band or in an acoustic setting, Phil’s music is always delivered with a passion and a smile. He draws from his 6 solo albums and multiple Newsboys CD’s to communicate the story of a life radically changed by God.

Join us to see Peter Furler in Concert, with his special guest Phil Joel!

I hope to see you there!

Yours in Christ,

Timm Dalman

The Mississippi Valley Blues Society presents "Prince of Blues" Chris Beard PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Music & Entertainment
Written by MVBS   
Friday, 27 July 2012 08:10

The Mississippi Valley Blues Society presents Chris Beard and his band on Sunday August 5 at The Muddy Waters, 1708 State Street, Bettendorf IA. The show begins at 5:00 p.m. Admission is $8 for MVBS members and $10 for non-members (member applications will be available at the door).

When you grow up in a house filled with the blues, when your father grew up on Beale Street, when music was in your DNA, then blues is who you are and what you do.

Born in Rochester, New York, Chris Beard is the son of well-known bluesman Joe Beard. He took the first step of his musical career at the age of five when he picked out the melody for "Green Onions" on the guitar. It was a prophetic beginning, as the funky mix of blues and instrumental panache of the classic Booker T and the MCG's soul instrumental continues to be a hallmark of his style today.

"I grew up as Joe Beard's son in the house of the blues, around Buddy Guy and Matt Murphy," says Chris. "Matt always told me that the guitar has to become an extension of you, and that will always stick with me."

On Sunday, August 5, Beard will be backed by a band of musicians that Beard has recorded and traveled with for many years. (One of the stops on their 2011 tour was the Bandshell stage at the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival.)

The objective of the Blues Society is to educate the general public about the native art form of blues-related music through performance, interpretation and preservation, thus enhancing appreciation and understanding. The Society will make all events sponsored by it accessible to the general public by being non-profit and using volunteers.
