Big Stuff Happening at Jason Bradley HQ!

Jason and colored lights

We’ve got some big stuff happening over the next three weeks. The Super Bowl is over. Everyone is gone. So, we can stop acting like we relish the sub-zero temps. I know better, and you can’t snow the snowman. The good news? We’re on the upswing just in time for you to come on out and celebrate with me. This Saturday, I will be back at Maverick’s Wood Grill in Champlin at 9pm. Amazing food, it feels like family, and there’s a rock and roll show to boot. I hope that if you’re around, you’ll come on out. The following weekend (the 17th) I’ll be doing a conference in Mountain Lake, way down in the southwestern corner of Minnesota. Then on the 24th, I’ll be at Wild Mind Artisan Ales in Minneapolis from 7-10pm.

That’s a whole lot of rock and roll for your February! Get out your big red marker and circle the dates, because I know, as well as you do, that its been way too cold and you need a release. See you out there soon!

Happy New Year… It’s Go Time!

Pre concert room at Las Vegas House of Blues

First off, I want to take the time to wish you all a Happy New Year! Despite having to loading up the gear in sub-zero temperatures, and maybe drive through a blizzard or two, I am really looking forward to the next string of dates. January marks that time of year where we start over on another trip around the sun, and we continue the journey to become more of the us we really want to be.

This January, I’m picking up a new gig at J’s Down Under in Buffalo, MN. I’m excited for the opportunity! It’s been a while since I’ve journeyed out west to enjoy an evening of rock and roll with all of you. If you’re out in that area, I hope you’ll come out to say hi on January 19th. I’a doing some conferences and retreats around the state this year, so that will be a lot of fun. The Maverick’s gig is still going strong. They want to give me exclusivity on Saturday nights. That means I might be doing a lot more shows there, as well. Check out all of the dates here.

I hope to have a lot more goodies online this year, as well. Make sure to follow me on Instagram, as I’m putting up one-minute versions of covers and originals for everyone. Let me know if you want to hear something specific that’s not up there yet. I’m also getting some live tracks up on SoundCloud as I can.

I can’t wait to see you all out on the road this year. It’s 2018, and it may be as cold as the arctic outside, but I assure you that you will stay nice and cozy warm when you come and see me wherever I am playing. Who’s ready to take on this year with me? It’s go time!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends!

Tom Turkey with his tail fanned out

I’m not sure what I love more, the fresh cranberry sauce or the mincemeat pie (it’s probably the pie), but there’s something about Thanksgiving that I absolutely love. It might be the food, or that the Vikings are going to dominate the Lions and pretty much sew up the NFC North in Week 11… but I think that it’s more that I can kind of shut off my ever-working brain and think about the things in my life that I’m really thankful for. I believe that gratitude and thankfulness should be critical parts of our everyday lives. I try to remember where I’ve come from, where I’m headed, and who has helped me to get here. It might be something that I see as a victory. It’s not always a happy story at the time, but the things I take from those moments that make me better deserve as much thankfulness as the times that I come out winning. Either way, it’s important that we are thankful, and that we let those with an impact know that we are thankful for them. Like you… I’m thankful for you. If you come to my shows, read my website, download my music, tell someone about it… you are amazing in my book! Without you, I’m just making noise for the sake of making noise. Thank you for being there to receive the sounds I emit. This is an interesting journey… and I wouldn’t want to do it without all of the friends I’ve made along the way. I hope to see you all at Maverick’s 10th Anniversary party on 11/30/17. I’ll be on from 7 to 8pm, with my friends in the Redneck Hippies on after me. It’ll be an amazing time, with proceeds going to charity. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and I’ll see you all very soon!

Hear My New Song- The March

I decided to sit down with my phone in a big ‘ol room, pick a song I wrote, and see what comes out. I was so pleased with the outcome, that I thought I’d share it with all y’all. I think I will do a number of songs this way (some old, some new), just so that I can keep sharing. I’d love to hear your feedback. I’d also love it, if you like what you hear, that you might decide it’s worthy of sharing with your friends. Word of mouth is the best way you can be a part of the team. Your friends will be eternally grateful to you if you help them find something they enjoy. Be a good friend! Thank you all so much in advance for your time and attention. You have no idea how much I appreciate you!

Surprise Maverick’s Acoustic Gig

Hello, friends!!! I wanted to give you a quick heads up, to let you know that I will be at Maverick’s Wood Grill this Saturday night (7/30/16) at 9pm. This is kind of a last minute show, so it wasn’t on my schedule. I hope that you will consider coming out to sing along with me. We’re going to have some fun!

A whole mess of gigs, and winning awards

Foolish Pride Video Capture

Wow. Time is a cruel master. It stops for no one, and you either keep on top of the wave or the rip current drags you out to sea. I feel like there is so much that I need to tell you all about, while I’m finally able to catch my breath. It ‘s been a year of pedal to the metal, winning awards, and writing new material.

The short film that I did with Rob Kerr, At the End of the Line, as now won four awards (Near Nazareth FestivalHudson Valley, Back In The BoxBest Shorts Competition), including Best Song and Best Music Video. That’s exciting news as festivals around the world continue to take interest in our little film that could.

I’ve been up at Maverick’s Wood Grill monthly, and continuing with my weekly gig at Park. It’s been amazing to be able to play as much as I have. With over 100 gigs last year and a whole mess again this year, it has given me an opportunity that many other people aren’t fortunate enough to realize. Not a day goes by, that I’m not super thankful for the ability to be as active as I am in the music world. I owe that to all of you that continue to come and see me on a regular basis. You make each outing memorable, and have given me a network of people I am proud to call friends. Y’all have done a lot for me, and I know that you will continue to inspire me as I walk this road.

I’ve definitely got more plans on the horizon, so please bear with me as they come to fruition.

I can’t wait to see you soon! Make sure to come on out this summer and say hi!

It’s Patio Time Again!

Jason Bradley

Yes, it’s true! Temps are heating up again, which means that fine eating establishments are opening up their patios for live music! In addition to my usual Mav’s gig on Sat, May 16th (which is always fun), I will be on the patio at Maple Tavern on May 15th and 29th (weather permitting). I guarantee you will enjoy these special nights outside with a little music. I mean, what could be better?

See you soon!

At The End Of The Line Premier

Last Sunday, I attended the premier for the short film “At The End Of The Line”, for which I performed, recorded, and helped write and mix. Because of the subject matter, I knew I would be proud of this project. I did not expect, however, that as I watched the film roll by, I would get to the end and be held speechless. I’ve watched it five times, and have left with the same reaction each time. The film will be rolled out online soon. I will let you know when it is, so that you can see it. It tells an important story that I believe we need to reacquaint ourselves with, especially with world events, such as they are. I hope these photos will get you excited.
