Mad Dogs & Englishmen - 50th Anniversary Celebration of Joe Cocker’s Concert Experience

Hartford celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Joe Cocker’s groundbreaking 1970 live album and tour, MAD DOGS & ENGLISHMEN on APRIL 10  starring soul sensation REMEMBER JONES and a 20-piece band. Serving as a dedication to Joe Cocker and Leon Russell, the show will be recreated with the exact 20-piece personnel from the original tour including a full choir, two drum kits, horn section, piano, Hammond B3, two guitars, and more surprises.

This event will include all songs from the entire tour beyond those on the original album release, with interpretations of songs by rock and soul greats including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Leonard Cohen, Traffic, Leon Russell, and more. Songs from the original tour include: “With a Little Help from My Friends,’ “Give Peace a Chance,” “Let It Be,” “Feelin’ Alright,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “Cry Me a River,” “Delta Lady”, "The Letter", and many other favorites.

Taking on lead vocals is national soul sensation Remember Jones, a notorious and bombastic vocalist and persona, called "fiercely passionate frontman... one for the ages..." by Live for Live Music, "...uncanny magic... remarkable vocalist..." by POPDOSE, "powerhouse soul singer" by American Songwriter Magazine, "New Jersey's most ambitious song interpreter" by NJ Arts, and "truly captivates audiences every time he performs" by BroadwayWorld. He has shared the stage with Darlene Love, Ronnie Spector, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Nigel Hall, Robert Randolph, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, and more. His first released debut album, Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!, featuring members of his touring show band, was recorded with a 25-piece soul orchestra in front of a live studio audience that raised $19,000 in it's funding and a 2017 release “Tranquilizer!” produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes) in Nashville, TN. Remember Jones and his collaborative band have a stronghold on Asbury Park, NJ's thriving music community and continue to tour the US to great acclaim.

Artist Bio

Remember Jones is a one-of-a-kind soul/pop singer, storyteller and bandleader with a throwback vibe and authentic energy. Collaboratively supported by a large ensemble of musicians (often featuring female backing vocalists, a horn section, and a six-piece rhythm section), the band has played to countless packed and sold-out ballrooms, clubs and theaters throughout the country.

Remember Jones’ debut album, Ladies and Gentlemen, Remember Jones!, was created after raising close to $19,000 through nearly 300 small donations via IndieGoGo, and created in front of a live studio audience with a 25-piece band. Their subsequent release, Tranquilizer!, was recorded at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN, under the production of Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Langhorne Slim). Remember Jones was named one of Paste Magazine and Daytrotter’s Top 10 R&B/Soul Artists of 2017.

In addition to touring and supporting two albums worth of original material, Remember Jones presents and fronts multiple productions which have also gained wide popularity. back to BACK TO BLACK, a recreation of the entire Amy Winehouse album with an orchestra of 12, and Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs and Englishmen in a 20-piece arrangement, have helped Remember Jones develop a diverse audience as the band opens each performance with a set of original music. The company has performed Jeff Buckley's Grace album in its entirety as a collaboration with Grammy-nominated guitarist and Grace co-writer Gary Lucas, a 50th Anniversary concert experience of the musical HAIR, and a live revival of Kanye West’s 808s and Heartbreak with a 25-piece orchestra. 

Remember Jones has shared stages with George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Ronnie Spector & The Ronettes, Darlene Love, Buster Poindexter, Nigel Hall, The Hip Abduction, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, and more. In the vein of putting their spin on others’ material, Remember Jones released Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?!, a single in celebration of Dean Martin’s 100th birthday, sharing studio time with Dean’s daughter, Deana Martin.

Whether you see him fronting a piano, a four-piece band, or with a soul orchestra of 25, Remember Jones evokes the energy of the great front men and women, with one of a kind song styling and expert storytelling that keep audiences on their toes and emotions in the moment.
