Former Chicago frontman, Jeff Coffey, returned to the stage in The Woodlands, TX, for a special one-night-only duo acoustic performance with Rex Schnelle.
Online PR News – 25-September-2021 – Houston, TX – On Friday, September 17th, former Chicago frontman and current bassist for Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles), Jeff Coffey, returned to the Dosey Doe Big Barn stage in The Woodlands, TX for his special one-night-only duo acoustic performance with Rex Schnelle. This marked Jeff’s first time back to Dosey Doe since 2018 and his first live show as a solo artist in over a year. The evening ended with an encore performance and two standing ovations for the veteran musicians.
The set included music from Jeff’s 2020 album, “Origins-Singers and Songs That Made Me,” which features his take on classic rock favorites from the 70s through 90s from artists like Paul McCartney, Journey, and Rod Stewart, among others. These tracks blended seamlessly with singles from his latest release, “This Time Around,” and the fan-requested Chicago covers that were sprinkled in throughout the night. Fans cheered and sang along to classics, including; “Maybe I’m Amazed,” “Ask The Lonely,” and “If You Leave Me Now.”
Halfway through the show, Jeff stopped to thank our first responders for their ongoing efforts and later paused to reflect on the growing division in our nation and his hope for unity, which was met with applause and praise, before performing his single, “Someday.”
“...the song reflects on the division, which is a poison in this country. But, in the end, it always remains hopeful that maybe, someday, we’ll figure this out to coexist with one another in harmony.” -Jeff Coffey
Jeff currently has a few projects in the works and is gearing up for a promotional tour for “This Time Around” as more of the country continues to reopen. Over the past year, through all of the uncertainty of venue closures and ongoing show cancellations and reschedules, Jeff used this time to reconnect with his fans, playfully nicknamed “Coffeymates,” through virtual shows and social media. While demand for his solo live shows is rising, he is hopeful for a full tour announcement for 2022.
