BILL WITHERS TRIBUTE SET TONIGHT!! 

TONIGHT at 7PM PST, I'll be playing an entire set of classic BILL WITHERS songs in honor of a brilliant man, legend and friend. 

I once invited Bill Withers to go see Michael Kiwanuka and the Alabama Shakes play at the Fonda Theater. Surprisingly, he said he'd love to go. I got it all set up for us to sit VIP in the center of the balcony and it was just me and him watching the show having a great time. I knew Michael covered one of his songs, "I Don't Know" and didn't say anything about it. When Michael got to the song in his set, I saw Bill lean forward listening closer in a quick moment of confusion until he realized what it was. Once Michael started singing, he leaned back and said, "I thought something sounded familiar". Haha. It was such a cool moment. 

Here's my favorite photo from that night I'll never forget.

Joel Eckels at Hotel Cafe - 8.23.17

The Hotel Cafe, 1623 1/2 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90068

As many of you might know, I am involved in all different sides of music and I love all of it. I've spent the past few months out on the road with LUKAS NELSON & PROMISE OF THE REAL as their tour manager and sound engineer, which has been quite the rock n roll experience. Such a great band and a cool bunch of guys. We've been fortunate enough to have been on the road with Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Margo Price, Nicki Blum, Jason Isbell and even Bob Dylan! It's certainly been a trip and I've learned a lot.

Now that I'm home for a minute, I'm dying to play some music. Join me at the Hotel Cafe Second Stage on WED, AUGUST 23RD at 10pm. I'll be playing a set of tunes from old to new and maybe a few twists. I'll have some talented friends joining me as well. Cant wait. See you there.
