Enjoy! -- JB

A Sonnet Roughly The Quality Of Our Van. . . .

Our van is white and kind of like Smigel

An orange light sits atop as a beacon

(we can't turn it on -- it is illegal)

Holes in the floor, the rooftop is leakin'.

Upholstery: there's none of it inside

Tho we duct taped down some cheapo carpet

Five dudes in 10 square feet, no place to hide

I believe our cooler smells like armpit.

The back benches were welded to the floor

It was originally for cargo

We replaced an axle at the car… Continue

Jonny's Food Blog - Perfect Mole Sauce in Salt Lake City - The Red Iguana

You know a local place is gonna be fantastic when you hear it from all sides, and Salt Lake City's, Red Iguana definitely fits that criteria... First off, an old buddy recommended it (thank you E-Man!), then we got an email from a local (thank you Dave!), and every site I checked out raved about it. When I went saw the menu AND the fact that Los Lobos… Continue

Jonny's Food Blog - Denver - Tommy's Thai and Burrito Amigo

When in doubt, ask the bartender at the club... I'm learning that this really works. The good folks at the Bluebird Theater in Denver all recommended that I walk across the street to get what is known as the best Thai food in Denver - Tommy's Thai.

They weren't far off - it was awesome. I kept it simple and got some green curry with vegetables/tofu, brown rice, and a Thai iced tea.…

Jonny's Food Blog - Omaha's Big Fred's Pizza and Competitive Eating on I-80

Sam did a pretty good job describing our amazing show situation in the strip mall in Omaha, so I won't go into that, but I will send our favorite Omaha family, The D'Agosto's, a HUGE shout-out for taking care of us while in town... We love you lots...

Ok - now to the food. Omaha might not be between Chicago and New York, but their pizza definitely is... Our buddy Nick D and his family treated us to a local Husker favorite, Big Fred's Pizza. It was thick, stout, gooey, goodness with… Continue

Jonny's Food Blog - Boise's Best French Fries - The Idaho Fry Company

So we're driving through Idaho and I know it's cheesy, but I didn't care - I wanted French Fries and wanted them bad... After a bit of research, I found that most of the spots that seemed to be the highest rated were closed on Sunday, but I came across a new joint in Boise - The Idaho Fry Company.

It must have been destiny because their "Bourgeois" fries might be the best… Continue

Jonny's Food Blog - Jerk Chicken and Lightning in St. Louis

Ok - This is something I've always wanted to do and now is as good a time as any - so here's my food blog... I'll start it from the road, but continue once I get back to NY.

First stop - St. Louis... The first stop of our tour, we pulled into the venue "Off-Broadway" which was a bit too far from the BBQ place I wanted to check out, so I asked the bartender, Johnny, where I should go to get something awesome. He threw out a couple options but when I heard "Jerk Chicken," I was sold...… Continue

I've a feeling we're not in New York anymore. . . .

Being on tour is a unique experience. You live in a crappy van where taking a nap, talking on the phone and stretching your legs out between the piles of banjos and spilled Cheerio boxes are all colossal feats of mental fortitude. When you tell that friendly someone at the Bucks General Store gas station that you are in a band and out on tour, their parting words are invariably 'Well, have a great road trip,' and it's all you can do to keep from going a little nuts: 'Do you think I'm the kind… Continue

Live at 92Y Tribeca this Friday


We'll be kicking off our June tour this Friday with a show at 92Y Tribeca. The bill will include Shannon McNally, who is not only talented, but looks to be a dead ringer for Lost's Evangeline Lily. Come out and enjoy a great night of music and help us prepare to hit the road in our trusty JSS Beacon van! Tickets are $12 and the show kicks at 9:30pm.

We'll take our positions in the van the following week and will travel until the end of June, riding shotgun with Ben… Continue
