Bay Area legend Country Joe McDonald will make a rare appearance performing classic material from the era of Country Joe & The Fish – the Berkeley group who today widely acknowledged as pioneers of psychedelic rock music.

The programme will include in it’s entirety Country Joe & The Fish’s landmark 1967 debut album “Electric Music For The Mind & Body,” along with an acoustic segment. On the former material, Joe will be backed by the Electric Music Band, a quintet led by Grammy-nominated writer and archivist Alec Palao. Joining him to accompany McDonald are guitarists Matt Piucci (Rain Parade, Hellenes) and Derek See (Gentle Cycle, Strangers In A Strange Land), Jozef Becker (Thin White Rope, Loud Family) on drums and Andrea Hensler (Flower Furnace, Jean Genies). EMB will be opening the show with a set of classic covers from the era. Palao assures that the proceedings will “exceedingly psychedelic”.
