  • Joe Locke is honored to be recognized once more as the recipient of the award for the Northwest Concert of the year for 2007.

    Joe and I have both had the pleasure of making many friends in the Northwest and we hope to make many more and continue to have the opportunity to perform here often in the future.

    Joe and I extend our best wishes to all the fans and great musicians in the Great Northwest.
