Joey Shaheen aka: "The Wrong Omar" has been touring the US and Canada, singing his "sidewalk confessionals of bad choices" with a tongue-in-cheek curmudgeon persona for old souls of all ages. His solo acoustic show follows a string of radio and TV performances throughout the Southeast and Mid-West. Soulful work on the piano leads to a set of guitar/harp and foot tambo songs that can be best described as: "crying tears of joy while making love". You might also laugh yourself silly with some of his stories. Be warned: you may walk away with these tunes stuck in your head, and you will be encouraged to sing along at times too.
The Wrong Omar presents a night of roots/folk/rock with blues harp, stories and rock&roll; aphorisms.
