On February 13, a thousand people rocked to the rhythm of Jocaine at the "Piggyback Ride EP Release Party". Jason Krause of Kid Rock's band Twisted Brown Trucker and Uncle Kracker jumped on stage and performed with Jo and the boys. It was an amazing night. Veteran Creem Magazine photographer Bob Alford said "I haven't been in a crowd that entertained since J. Geils in '81. I felt like a pinball. It was great!".
As good as that night was, the triumphant return home of the "Piggyback Ride
Tour" will blow your minds! With an all new stage show and new songs from the
forthcoming full Jocaine release never before heard in public, Jocaine is fired up to close this
tour with a bang you won't soon forget. Never has there been an unsigned act with this much
staging and few national acts bring the passion and performance you'll witness at a Jocaine show!

His crowds best national artists and his songs have inspired collaboration with Rap legend MC Breed on Breed's upcoming release and invitations to tour in support of some of today's hottest national acts. MC Breed will also be making a surprise guest appearance on stage.
