Singer/Songwriter Jody Joseph performs a theatrical celebration of the music of Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks…two women who have influenced her career and life.

Who is Jody Joseph, the performer? If you mix the classic rock and roll style of legendary singer, Janis Joplin with the bewitching femininity of rock and roll’s beloved gypsy, Stevie Nicks, you have a recipe for success. Jody Joseph, a talented singer/songwriter in her own right, gives a riveting performance which pays homage to these two legendary rockers who have inspired her. She shines through as an individual who has earned her right to take the stage and entertain people of all ages.

This production will be delivered in three flowing sequences. Jody will not only perform as these two extraordinary entertainers, but she will emulate the magic that has invoked thousands of fans to love them. The show will include wardrobe changes in which Jody will appear to look like Janis and Stevie. She will also appear as herself and perform her original songs….the rock and roll daughter of these two women.

Jody Joseph has inherited her incredible talent from her musical family. Jody is first cousin to rock sensation, Jon Bon Jovi, and is a cousin to the great opera singer, Mario Lanza. Music is the blood that courses through her veins and she personifies a rootsy/blues mystique that is captivating. Joseph is backed by a band of exceptional, seasoned musicians who have supported her for years.

In 2006, she toured with Big Brother and the Holding Company for a brief time and has an open invitation to join them again. Jody fronted Janis Joplin’s original band and brought Janis to life, if only for a brief time.

Fans of Joplin and Nicks will get blissfully lost in her performances as these two ladies and become exhilarated upon encountering the magic that Jody, herself, will generate. For years, fans of Joseph have remarked how much she sounds and looks like these two legends and yet never mistake her originality. They know who she is and will follow her for years to come.

Jody once again performed this show at Brookdale College PAC to a packed house on September 25, 2010, where it received rave reviews.

On October 22, 2011 the show was performed at the Pollak Theater, Monmouth University, West Long Branch NJ. A portion of the proceeds from the show were donated to The American Cancer Society – Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

On Saturday, April 27, 2013 the show was performed at The Strand Center for the Arts, in Lakewood.

“The Common Thread”

Celebrating Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks

In an intimate setting, Jody Joseph unveils her feelings about life and love through the powerful songs of two legendary rock and roll goddesses. She talks about the common thread that weaved its way thru her own musical DNA, and also shows the parallels in her own songwriting.

Unlike the full stage production where she performs in complete character and likeness, this particular show, where she is performing as herself, is up front and personal, riveting, witty, and real.
