As of May 28th 2014 Mark Tortorici and Torch Music & Entertainment / Torch Presents
is NO LONGER associated with Joe’s Great American Bar & Grill /Thompson Capital, LLC,
in any way, and will no longer be booking, promoting, nor performing at Joe’s in any capacity.
It's been one hell of a roller coaster ride the last 9 years! So many incredible memories made, amazing music experienced from both on and off the stage, and most of all, meeting and hanging with a giant music & dancing "family" of sorts. THANK YOU all for your talents, support, friendships, and love. I am proud of what I accomplished there during my time, with the bare minimum of resources and tools provided to me... and it couldn't have been done without so many folks help. You know who you are and my gratitude is heartfelt. I left on my own terms and am happy about my decision.
When not performing, playing, or recording music, I will ALWAYS be involved with promoting and booking great music, and I am sure you will hear from me soon about new venues and projects I am involved in. One is already underway- a weekly live music series at the SUNSET STRIP MARKET, L.A.’s hippest new Farmer’s Market, every Thursday evening May thru September- FREE for all ages. www.torchpresents.com/venues/sunset-strip-market.html
I'm also working on a few new releases on my record label, as well as getting ready for some touring and more recording in the fall and early next year. Joe's is a closed chapter in my life. Yet though I am gone and no longer associated with the venue, Lorenzo will continue on with Happy Feet Mondays, and I strongly encourage your support of him WHEREVER he may take the night, as there are few people I know who have as much passion and love for the music as he does.
I am in the midst of changing and updating my various websites, etc, so be patient with me and check back from time to time as I move forward. If you’re not already on my email list, please get on it so I can let all you good people know where I’m going to be and what new trouble I’m stirring up! Thank you again for your support and friendships- this means the most to me of everything. I am CERTAIN I will see you on down the road very soon….from the stage, on the dance floor, or at the bar…!
