It's All Veillette At Joe's Gig!
August 20, 2015

I'm always proud of my talented husband Joe and his beautiful instruments, but a special treat is the fact that he performs a lot, of course with his own guitars! But this past weekend, Joe and his dear friends and bandmates Dorraine and Mike performed a set at The Woodstock Volunteer's Day ( avery special annual event in our town) and the whole band was playing Veillette!!!

Joe Veillette, Dorraine Scofield and Mike McDonough all playing Veillette Guitars/Basses on "Southern Cross" at Woodstock Volunteer's Day, 2015. Mike on Paris fretless 4-string piezo-only. Dorraine in Studio 15" acoustic. Joe on Flyer 6/12 doubleneck piezo-only.

I loved it. Hope you do too-Kim (Joe's Wife)

It is so gratifying to see what our instruments can do in the hands of a brilliant, creative musician!
