“The show has grown enormously,” says Joe Neri, the show’s producer and co-owner of The Well Red Coyote bookstore, “starting out in 2006 as a small acoustic show in our bookstore and evolving into a major stage show at the Old Town Center for the Arts. We sold out last year and I expect the same this year. We have some new talent that should make it even more exciting and entertaining than previous shows.”

Bob Dylan Birthday Party with Joe Neri

Neri and the Mystery Tramps, his backing band for the Dylan shows, will be joined by a long list of some of the best musicians in Northern Arizona.

Every show has been different, with hundreds of Dylan songs to choose from, and every show is full of surprises. One very popular part of the show for the past four years, and will definitely be included in this seventh annual show, is an audience participation singing of “Desolation Row,” with Neri singing the first two and the last verses of this 10-verse Dylan epic and individual members of the audience coming on stage to sing the middle verses.

“And, we always sing “Happy Birthday” to Bob Dylan, and then break for birthday cake,” says Neri.

“There’s a very special feeling that’s shared by the entire audience, from revisiting these classic Dylan tunes,” William Eaton remarked. “Joe Neri and the Mystery Tramps are great, they’ve made this event a real tradition for Northern Arizona.”
