Jo Burt & The JBEx
The last few years have seen Jo making a name in his own right with his project The Jo Burt Experience (also known as the JBEx). Jo's writing style is based on his background of rock, with a southern-style influence and a very English Beatles-esque twist. To use his own terms – 'Anglicana' and 'psycho-country'.
He is an hypnotic performer, drawing in his listeners with tales from his recording and touring past, and telling gripping and intriguing stories through his songs themselves. His warm and enthusiastic approach never fails to endear him to his audience and the connection and friendship with his band is equally apparent as they clearly thrive on performing Jo's music. It shows - together with his band, Jo continues to electrify his audience with the mixture of honesty, intensity and humour that he brings to each performance. The show comprises tracks from the brand new album 'Spontaneous' together with audience favourites from previous releases 'Indestructible' and 'Seven Seeds'; and is interspersed with Jo's own versions of some of the huge hits that have shaped his amazing career (Wild Thing, Paranoid, 2-4-6-8 Motorway etc).
“Packed full of brilliant tracks” Evolver Magazine
“A thoroughly enjoyable release” The Rocker Magazine
“Jo is a virtuoso musician, and also a very talented vocalist, with a great gift for song writing. His supporting band are incredibly talented musicians and vocalists and the combination of Jo’s talent, embracing personality, clever song writing and his ability to connect effectively with the audience makes The Jo Burt Experience an extraordinarily entertaining event which will resonate with you and your audiences long after the final note has been delivered.” Kelowna Theatre, BC
