DYSON HOUSE SHOW JULY 14TH, 2018 

Patrick Johnson will be performing alongside Nick Butitta & Kyle Melancon at Dyson House Listening Room with very special guest Joel Neely on Saturday, July 14th, in a reunion show of music & storytelling.  

Opening the show will be Joel Neely, original guitarist/vocalist for several bands from the 1960s and 70s, including The Shepards, Jimmy and the Off Beats, Isosceles Popsicle, and The Lively Arts Quintet. While a member of Isosceles Popsicle, the band was fortunate enough to have their music featured on American Bandstand. 

Johnson and Neely share and unique back-story that spans over 26 years. 

After several years performing as a professional musician, Neely left the music business in 1985 to open a martial arts school in Baton Rouge. Johnson became one of his students in 1992 at the age of 16. 

Neely and Johnson worked together as Instructor/Student, then as Employer/Employee until 1999 when Johnson left to finish his degree and pursue a career in music. 

Over the years, Neely owned and operated several martial arts schools in South Louisiana (as many as 5 at once), and eventually sold all but one, which is located on Coursey Boulevard. 

Neely never ended his musical career, as he frequently plays, and has decided to return to the stage in recent years. 

Johnson and Neely met up again at Johnson's CD release show and decided to put together a musical extravaganza that the two never would have thought of as possible before now. 

Please join us to celebrate Patrick Johnson's new album, and welcome Joel Neely back to the stage in a show entitled "Full Circle" on Saturday, July 14th at Dyson House Listening Room. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com.  $15 General Admission, $25 V.I.P., and $20 the day of the show. BYOB!
