Joel  has recorded and performed with many other fine musicians including: Bonnie Raitt, Jerry Garcia, Little Feat, Danny O’Keefe, Spencer Davis, Linda Ronstadt, Iain Matthews, Earl Hooker, Johnny Shines, Magic Sam and Bukka White.   Some of Joel’s current musical focus involves performing with Danny O’Keefe and others in support of the Songbird Foundation ( and other charitable and environmental causes. 


Very Special Thanks to Cash America, Elliot Salter (Instant Loans), Capitol Loans Seattle, Pawn Pros and the countless other fine sources of affordable musical instruments.  And thanks to Guitar Center too.  They really do come though when it counts, bless their black, soft and fuzzy corporate hearts.
Thank You Alaska Airlines for fair treatment, affordable flights and for extra good care of my gear as I fly.
Also, special thanks to Martin Guitars for ongoing support and excellent guitar building over the decades and National Resophonics for customized help and design.
