August 20 – JFP 8th Anniversary Party!

Jenni Finlay effortlessly shapes iconic careers. For the past decade, she’s consistently shot Americana’s finest toward the top of the charts. Now she’s turning potential into platinum more than ever: Finlay recently expanded into artist management (Jon Dee Graham, James McMurtry) . “At this point, there wouldn’t be much of a James McMurtry business were it not for Jenni Finlay Promotions,” says McMurtry, her longest running client. “Jenni is now poised to take over the world.”

Several from her singular roster – including McMurtry, Shelley King, Jess Klein and others soon announced – will gather August 20 at the Gibson Showroom, 3601 S. Congress Ave., Suite 400, to celebrate Jenni Finlay Promotions entering into its second decade.“For the past 10 years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with the best of the best in Americana music, truly the cream of the crop of the world’s singer-songwriters,” Finlay says. “I hope to further shine the light on all we can be with the recent expansion of Jenni Finlay Promotions.”

“Jenni’s used her natural intelligence and charm and titanium work ethic to reach a coveted level of success while retaining her integrity,” longtime client Noel McKay says. “I was lucky to work with her when she was first starting out and I’m exponentially luckier to work with her now. Jenni continues to work her ass off and the success of her artists is the proof.”



September 28 – Greg Trooper

Catfish welcomes Greg Trooper on September 28! Trooper is a singer/songwriter who has released 12 albums since 1986. Raised in the shore town of Little Silver, NJ he became enthralled by the greater New York area’s rich music scene. He discovered a sort of holy musical trinity in the work of Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, and Hank Williams, with their guiding lights of passion, literary dexterity and plainspoken honesty. It’s one reason Trooper’s music feels equally informed by Memphis soul, Greenwich Village folk and Nashville twang.

Trooper has made an impact on the music scenes in all the places he’s lived since leaving home after high school: Austin, Texas, Lawrence, Kansas, Nashville and New York. Music critics praise his poetic feel, infectious melodies and insightful lyrics. Americana star Buddy Miller produced 1998’s ‘Popular Demons’ album, while soul legend Dan Penn steered 2005’s extraordinary ‘Make It Through This World’. His songs have been recorded by numerous artists including: Vince Gill, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Robert Earl Keen, Maura O’Connell, Lucy Kaplansky and Tom Russell.

“The cool thing about Catfish Concerts is that it really has the feel of when I was a kid in South Austin, except you guys are way too calm and take it way to seriously.”                             – John Townes Van Zandt II

“Catfish Concerts is among the most intimate, friendly, inspired and inspirational house concerts in the country and most likely the world. It’s like hanging out with your favorite folks in a treehouse built by your favorite uncle, the one who paints and write poems all day. I’ll tell you what I think Catfish is: a genuine piece of heaven that you can touch with your hands while you drink good local beer and listen to great songs.  Thank you, Jenni and Brian, for creating such a space and event.” – Walt Wilkins
