stuff. Growing up in Southern California ĎPopí, as he is known to his close
cool friends, cut his teeth on the Rhythm and Blues of the late 50ís and
Now living in paradise, Salida, Colorado,
Papa J. is an icon of the cool days of Rock and Roll. He has brought the
experience of the years to his latest album "Party God".
Papa J. will be the first to let you know
that he has a "spiritual connection" with South Louisiana and New
Orleans. As he puts it, "New Orleans is the Mecca of Rock and Roll."
He practices what he preaches. Heís been

Mister", a soon to be Mardi Gras classic, with Pulitzer Prize nominee Ken
If youíre ever in Salida take a
walk over to the Victoria Saloon. Ask Peter about Papa J. Peter will let you
know how soulful Pop is.
Itís worth the trip.
