Join the Embassy for JD Simo and Patrick Sweany in the Embassy Theatre Lobby

Fort Wayne, Ind. (October 10, 2022) – The Embassy Theatre is proud to present JD Simo and Patrick Sweany for a limited capacity intimate performance in our theatre lobby on November 11, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale.

JD Simo is a Chicago-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer who connects the missing link between Motown and Woodstock as he fuses fluid and fiery fretwork with vital and vulnerable vocals. JD has been acclaimed by Rolling Stone, NPR, Guitar Player, Relix, No Depression, and more. He has collaborated with Jack White, Tommy Emmanuel, Luther Dickinson and Blackberry Smoke, among others. He has graced the bills of festivals including Bonnaroo, Warren Haynes Christmas Jam, and Mountain Jam.

Billboard claimed that JD’s 2019 solo album Off At 11 “channels forbearers such as Jimi Hendrix, Santana and the Allman Brothers Band,” and Guitar World dubbed it, “another step toward the 34-year-old Chicago native establishing himself as a contemporary blues-rock giant.” His latest album Mind Control is a swirling mix of old-school blues of John Lee Hooker, Earl Hooker and Lightinin’ Hopkins as well as the raw fuzzy rock of The Stooges and Nirvana.

Patrick Sweany is an American blues-rock musician who lives for the grooves. Whether it’s the ones he records on his albums, the ones he lays down with his band on the stage, or the ones that define his days writing songs and living life in Nashville, the grooves are what have propelled Sweany through 20+ years of performing and recording across 8 studio albums and dozens of countries around the world.

Together with his touring band, Sweany reworked about a dozen older songs during the pandemic, and even tracked a cover and a never-released tune which resulted in the release titled Get That Feeling. Nine Mile Records released these recordings (volumes I & II) in 2020 and 2021 all while Sweany continued to write and record another full-length album of new compositions.

TICKETS: $35 (plus applicable fees) can be purchased at, and the STAR Bank box office at the Embassy (260.424.5665) at 125 W. Jefferson Blvd. in Fort Wayne.
