DELPHOS — The Canal Days Committee has announced the entertainment for the 2014 offering set Sept. 18-21.
Joe Denim will liven up the Social Tent from 8 p.m. to midnight on Friday after his local debut at the Toast to the City on Thursday evening.
“Joe is the brother-in-law of Core Committee member Jim Grothouse so we had someone from the inside to help us secure him for the The Toast and Friday night,” Canal Days Coordinator Diane Sterling said. “He’s really good and I think people will like his sense of humor and his parodies of famous songs.”
For the past 10 years, Denim has been playing all over the country in front of hundreds of thousands of people with such acts as Uncle Kracker, on the Kenny Chesney Tour, Jaron & the Long Road To Love with Toby Keith Tour, Steve Holy and Jack Ingram. Denim is a classical-trained pianist and writes or co-writes his stand-up material and his songs. Denim’s blend of quick-witted stand-up and music connects with the audience regardless if he is performing at a rough biker bar or a comedy club in Nashville.
