J. Geils and his friends were invited to the TRI studios in San Rafael, CA by Bob Weir (founder of Grateful Dead) to do a live internet broadcast of their show which has sold out 24 straight times in 6 different states in the northeast! J. Geils is a legendary Rock Hall of Fame nominee, fresh off his tour with the J. Geils Band, and is also a producer, writer, sports car restoration expert, and is a rockin’ master of the blues, known for several huge classic hits and a soulful approach to the blues. One of J Geils special friends is Jeff Pitchell, who had a CD (Heavy Hitter/EMI) reach #7 on the Billboard Charts. Jeff Pitchell has shared the stage with B.B. King, Bo Didley, Buddy Guy, Joe Cocker, and now with J Geils. They have now collaborated on a newly released CD “American Girl,” named after a new movie directed by Ocsar nominee James Woods. Woods asked Jeff Pitchell to write these songs for his movie. This nine person show, with J Geils’ rock energy and Pitchell’s deep blues wisdom, will make for one huge memorable night.

“A sold out house packed The Bull Run on Saturday to hear classic blues-rock style of J Geils, who recently teamed up with International Songwriting Contest winner Jeff Pitchell. Together with Texas Flood they brought the house repeatedly to its feet during their performance. ..The performers were back on stage for one last set beckoned by a wave of chanting started by happy patrons begging for an encore……” Bonnie Toomey, Worcester Examiner

“If you haven’t seen them together, do yourself a favor and check out this Geils/Pitchell super-group. You will dance; you will party; you will go home happy! The supporting cast of Gerry Beaudoin, 3 x Grammy nominee, the J Geil’s Band drummer.,, the former sax player of the Temptations, the back-up singers etc.. alone are worth the price of admission…” Owner, The Bull Run venue
