JD Simo blew us away when he opened for The Allman Betts Band at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in 2019. We've been eager to have him back ever since! Happy that is finally happening with the special, very intimate show. This will be a seated show, limited to 100 people.
JD Simo, the Chicago-born, now Nashville transplant, is like a one-man crusade dedicated to keeping music real, raw, and honest, no matter the setting and no matter his role (whether it's wingman or bandleader).
JD's presence infuses the situation of the moment with the music that's been fueling him pretty much his whole life, spiced with influences that straddle both decades and dimensions.
As a songwriter, guitarist, and producer, he has worked with the likes of Jack White, Tommy Emmanuel, Luther Dickinson, Dave Cobb, Blackberry Smoke, and even been a member of Grateful Dead founder Phil Lesh's "Phil & Friends."
His latest album, Mind Control, is his most unique, original and rawest effort yet. Hill country trance blues of Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside and Asie Payton. Hypnotic Afro Beat of Fela Kuti and Tony Allen. Psychedelic warps of Captain Beefheart, Funkadelic, and Jimi Hendrix. The old school blues of John Lee Hooker, Earl Hooker and Lightnin' Hopkins. As well as the raw fuzzy rock of The Stooges and Nirvana. It's raw, funky and real. Such is life.
