Recap: Finnegan’s, The Hutton, and Groove on Grove

Here’s a recap of my recent performances.

Friday, April 20, 2018 – Toll Collectors at Finnegan’s

This was a really fun show at Finnegan’s Pub in Hoboken, NJ. We were without Ty on guitar for most of the show and it was fun to explore these songs sans lead guitar. As usual, we all crammed ourselves on this stage…

And then we played a nice mix of originals and covers! Here was the setlist.

Saturday, April 21, 2018 – Josh and Ty at The Hutton

The next night, I was joined by Ty Tuschen as I did my singer/songwriter thing at The Hutton in  Jersey City, NJ. After fueling up on a delicious meal, we played for more than two hours straight, mixing my original songs with some wide-ranging covers.

We didn’t actually get through the entire setlist, but we had good intentions! Here it was.

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 – Toll Collectors at Groove on Grove

The weather finally turned warm and sunny in a major way… and just in time for the first Groove on Grove of the season! It was a pleasure to kick it off by playing with Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors.

We played outdoors at the Grove Street PATH Plaza.

This was the setlist. The keys and mic stand kept it from blowing away in the wind!

The day ended with a beautiful sunset. Here’s the pedestrian plaza on Newark Ave. in Jersey City just down the block from where we performed.

The Hutton Recap 2/24/18

I had such a great time on Saturday, February 24th playing for a great crowd at The Hutton in Jersey City Heights. Ty Tuschen joined me on guitar for an epic two and a half hour set with no break! We simply didn’t want to stop playing.

Here was the setlist.

What a fantastic night!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 21st when I’ll be playing at the Hutton again!

Banding Together 2017 and Maxfield’s Recap 10/14/17

Doubleheaders aren’t only for sporting events.

This past Saturday, I spent the afternoon playing as part of the Banding Together 2017 fundraising show at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ and the evening playing with Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors for three sets at Maxfield’s on Main in Boonton, NJ.

#HEARTxSOULNJ Recap

JoshBicknell-SticksandStones

I had  such a great time playing at Sticks and Stones in Hawthorne, NJ for the Hope with Heart Benefit on Saturday, September 9th. The event raised over $2,200 for the kids.

The night was filled with art and music. I even sold two photographs. All proceeds went directly to the foundation. If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the event, it’s not too late. You can still make a contribution at www.hopewithheart.org.

Some photos of my photos!

And the setlist!

Latest Noise Showcase Recap 7/28/17

It was a fantastic event at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken, NJ, beginning with spoken word and moving into music. The energy was high and all six members of the Toll Collectors were there. A rarity for this band! We had a blast delivering an all-original setlist. Thank you to everyone who attended!

This was my perspective from the drum seat.

The band is all here!

An all-original song setlist.

Next show is coming up on Friday, August 4th at Maxfield’s in Boonton, NJ! Can’t wait!

Maxwell’s Recap 05/04/17

A huge thanks to everyone who came to Maxwell’s last Thursday. Ty and I had a blast! Here’s a nice photo captured that night.

And here was the setlist. It was slightly modified due to special requests, like one for Springsteen’s “Atlantic City.” For the most part, though, it remains accurate.

Thanks to everyone who came. Hope to be back at Maxwell’s soon!
