Joe Bourdet Band
Joe Bourdet and Band is a versitile country-esque rock combo that can range in style from gently loping acoustic ballads with delicate harmony vocals to intertwining slide guitar leads and tastefully vintaged-out rock sounds. The themes can involve pastoral imagery, sometimes betraying a love for the Sierra Nevadas. Often with a subtle spiritual subtext, the band presents the music of a seeker, one perceiving beauty, reaching for something that can't be fully articulated or understood, and thats OK.
Joe Bourdet is from Nevada City CA. He currently resides in Los Angeles CA. b. 1981.
Creds: Co-produced two full length albums with the band Whispering Pines. Composed the musical soundtracks for the films 'Patagonia Trips -- #Yuki_Surf' and 'Fishing for Unicorns.' Additionally, music has appeared in the TV series 'Dusk Till Dawn,' 'Damages,' 'Franklin and Bash,' the documentary 'The Pioneertown Palace' and probably some other stuff that the artist can't remember now.

THE PARTY TAKES ADVANTAGE OF BOTH THE ECHO'S MAIN PERFORMANCE SPACE AND ITS SUNNY BACK PATIO, WHERE RAY'S BACK PATIO BBQ SERVES UP SLOW-ROASTED PORK ON A WHITE HAMBURGER BUN FOR $6 A POP. KIDS ARE WELCOME AND RUN FREE WITH JOYOUS ABANDON; HANDSOME YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN LOUNGE AROUND WITH CANS OF BUD; VINTAGE WESTERN SHIRTS AND COWBOY BOOTS HANG FOR SALE ON RACKS BY THE SIDE OF THE STAGE.

"That's just one example of the type of collaborations in store at the Grand Ole Echo, whose definition of Americana is much more wide-ranging and diverse than its Nashville namesake, booking everything from southern rock to psychedelic alt-country to bluegrass to old fashioned honkytonk." - Jonathan Bernstein, American Songwriter
The Echo Park crowd knock back longnecks and listen to bands that can include (former) local fixture, Mike Stinson,or former members of the Blasters. Members of Wilco, and The Black Crowes have been known to show up and even take the stage.” - Los Angeles Magazine
“Sunday afternoons, put a kick in God’s day with the Grand Ole Echo, a downhome celebration with three live bands plus and old-timey jam and bbq on the back patio.” - The Pasadena Weekly
