picJoe West & The Santa Fe Revue is an emotionally moving and, at times, hilarious musical commentary on the "offbeat" life of award-winning, Alternative Country singer-songwriter Joe West, accompanied by his longtime backing band with special guests. "Shortly after I returned to Santa Fe in the late 90s," says West, "it didn’t take me long to notice my old home town had become a hotbed for so many accomplished musicians. Recently, I’ve been fascinated with world of Mark Twain, Will Rogers and the era of old wild-west shows and traveling carnivals. Back then, for the price of just one ticket, the audience got to enjoy an amazing, amusing and sometimes bizarre range of entertainment. So with that idea in mind, I thought it would be a lot of fun to perform my music with the help of a rotating cast of the most talented, offbeat and interesting Santa Fe folks I know."

After an early career in the New York theater scene, Joe moved to Austin, TX and formed a group called Joe West & the Sinners. His bizarre Alt-Country band created an immediate buzz, attracted lots of fans and landed a regular spot at Austin's world famous Continental Club, sharing the stage with such Texas legends as Jon Dee Graham and Wayne "The Train" Hancock. In 1999 Joe's first self-released CD, Jamie Was a Boozer, was voted "Top Ten Texas Platter" by the Austin Chronicle’s Critic's Poll and "Top Ten Male Vocalist " by the Chronicle’s Readers' Poll. He began to tour the U.S. and Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Arlo Guthrie and the Violent Femmes. Joe and his music seemed to be on the verge of widespread notoriety. But much like fellow poets Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, Joe answered a call deeper than show biz reality.

At the turn of the century, Joe returned to his home town of Santa Fe where he led several different bands and musical projects, most notably the Santa Fe All-Stars, which was voted "best band with twang" four years in a row by the Santa Fe Reporter's readers' poll. In 2005, Joe's CD The Human Cannonball reached #2 in the European Freeform Americana Charts. In 2011, with the help of producer and music guru Arne Bey, Joe created The Santa Fe Revue, which performed for sell-out crowds and even earned the dubious honor of headlining the 2012 UFO Festival in Roswell. His latest album, Blood Red Velvet, is a character-rich exploration of northern New Mexico’s dark mystery and magic and is off at the printer as we speak.  The crew will be previewing lots of new material at this show.
