Harvey's Kitchen — Joe Garrigan

3 Comments 03 Feb, 2009

Resident of Greensboro. Army Brat. Child of a musical family. Promoter. A food enthusiast. An accomplished drummer. He told me the other day he wants to start a live Karaoke band. He means it. For several years he’s been running the Joe G Cover Band Explosion which has drawn large crowds and brought disparate musical cliques together under the same roof at the Blind Tiger.

Both of his brothers have been signed onto major labels while Joe has been playing drums in an entire litany of bands all over the triad and triangle.

He’s also been in all of our 48 hour films. Best line so far, “Sweet. 1943 Canine Division.” If you live in Greensboro, without a doubt you either know him personally or you know someone who does.

Chris Jackson from Citified suggested I ask Joe to bare his chest. If you see him playing drums, you’ll see him without a shirt and maybe you’ll see it here too. Thanks Joe. A true friend. Mr. Greensboro.
