JJ ROME featuring Jerome Smith
The Fyrefly will host The JJ Rome Blue Moon Invitational!
JJ Rome is pet project of New York born Australian based music man Jerome Smith. Once in a blue moon, Jerome gets together with a dazzling roster of excellent players to play songs as varied as Audioslave’s “Cochise”, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Cold Shot”, The Bee Gees “To Love Somebody”, along with Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Johnny Winters classics and a handful of excellent originals.
Jerome has a resumé unequalled by anyone in this town. When he takes the stage, he brings his huge personality and sense of humour, and the years of his experience from working with Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, The Divinyls, Billy Thorpe, Barnesy, Ian Moss and probably just about everyone else who features in your music collection.
Jerome said, “ I’m over the moon to present this show! And it really does happen but once in a blue moon! These players are all in constant demand so I feel pretty special that they would deem to come with me to present this show. We’ve put together a dynamite show for y’all, with lots of surprises and some of the best songs ever written here on planet Earth across the decades."
