The Joe Iconis Rock and Roll Jamboree, according to press notes, is "a laid-back evening of Iconis tunes, featuring cuts from Joe's recently-orphaned musical The Black Suits, and a bunch of new songs. Songs of hate and hope, suburbia and pornography, cougars and jailbait, dead people and livin' things and more sing-alongs than you can shake a glass of whiskey at."
Joe Iconis, who received his MFA from the NYU/Tisch Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program, is a recipient of both the Jonathan Larson Award and the Daryl Roth Award. A production of Iconis' Black Suits, which was scheduled to begin in May at MCC Theatre, was recently canceled.
