Crazy Joe and the Mad River Outlaws
By Matt Clevenger
Crazy Joe and the Mad River Outlaws will make a special appearance at Peach’s Grill in Yellow Springs on Saturday, November 20, presenting a one-night-only reunion show with original drummer “Punkin” Pat Lee.
Based in Enon, surf-guitar master Crazy Joe toured with Deke Dickerson and has been featured in both Guitar Player and Vintage Guitar magazines. His group, the Mad River Outlaws, has also developed an international following, releasing a series of critically-acclaimed surf/rockabilly albums.
Saturday’s show will be a one-night-only reunion of the original Mad River Outlaws line-up, including founding members “Crazy” Joe Tritschler, “Hep Cat” Matt Duffey on standup bass and drummer “Punkin” Pat Lee. The original, Dayton Band Playoff-winning trio hasn’t played together since 2005 and will commemorate the event by offering $5 copies of their first album Chopped, Slammed & Twangin.’
Tickets for the show are $5; music starts at 10 p.m. More information can be found online at HYPERLINK “http://www.crazyjoe.org” www.crazyjoe.org or www.peachsgrill.com
