On Thursday, June 5, 2014, Poel will join his friend and ex-bandmate Andrew to revisit some band day songs and some new materials by Andrew in acoustic format. Poel will be mostly singing, and playing some guitar. This will be around 8:00PM at Balconi Coffee Company.
All three shows above will not have any entrance fee.
Poel has been working closely with A. Yamauchi to put together a group of recordings. Many of them are older materials but some are solo renditions of songs performed with Raanen Bozzio Gene Migaki and Poel. Some songs feature guest appearances by Poel’s friends. There is no set date on when those recordings will be made available for purchase but “Heart,” “This Song,” and “Thinking of You” can be heard on the soundcloud page (click on photo to be taken there).
Meanwhile, Raanen Bozzio Gene Migaki and Poel group has been working on yet more material.
