Two of the funniest entertainers on today’s music scene. – The Boston Globe
Leave your worries at the doorstep and join Christine Lavin and Don White as they present a night of comedy unlike any other, The Funny Side of the Street: A Night of Brighter Laughter. Since 2008 these two veteran performers have brought their unique brand of clean and hilarious musical comedy to audiences across the US proving night after night that comedy can be smart, friendly, and breathtakingly funny without being vulgar or pejorative. This is a show for anyone who wants to laugh, whether it’s a group of friends or a family gathering, and feel good on their way out of the venue.
With all the performers out there, an artist has to go beyond good…and Joe does.–Sing Out Magazine
Joe is a master storyteller capturing the essence and character of the people he meets on life’s journey in setting to song their memories, experiences and dreams. In concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next. Examples of his themes are the stories of troubled youth with whom he worked in prison and his own grandfather’s story of helping construct the runways for the atomic bomb attacks on Japan. Joe wrote the music for the documentary film “Blue Tattoo” which is about his friend Dina Jacobson, a survivor of the Holocaust.

Folk on steroids! Brother Sun melds heart-lifting anthems with the art of harmonic massage. Nimble, strong and soothing all at once!—Mary Sue Twohy, The Village Folk Show, Sirius XM
From three major points on the map— Boston, New York, and Chicago—Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor, and Joe Jencks have blended themselves into Brother Sun: a unique celebration of the amazing power of singing together. As they will tell you, the music of Brother Sun is not resident in any one of them—but rather it exists in the space between them. Audiences feel this sincerity immediately. Their combined musical skills make for an unforgettable experience—three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, piano, ukulele, and bouzouki.
