Stars Align for A Sweet Relief Tribute to Joey Spampinato on True North Records, Out June 25


True North Records announces a June 25th release date for A Sweet Relief Tribute to Joey Spampinato, which features a lengthy list of friends and fans of the NRBQ founding member/bassist saluting him with 14 versions of their own previously unreleased takes of Spampinato-penned songs.

A Sweet Relief Tribute to Joey Spampinato is an inspired album recorded by an astounding group of musicians who are all generously donating their proceeds from these recordings to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund to support Joey with his current health issues. The Sweet Relief Musicians Fund provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability or age-related problems.

Joey Spampinato, a singer, songwriter and bassist, was co-founder of the legendary NRBQ, a rock quartet whose genre-defying music continues to inspire generations of music fans and fellow musicians. Many of those musicians answered the call from Joey’s wife Kami Lyle and producer Sheldon Gomberg when they contacted them about recording one of Joey’s songs for an album to help raise funds for Joey when it was revealed he was battling cancer.

  1. I just wanted to reach out to Joey and wish him the very best. I first met him on Elder Avenue in the Bronx. Where I guess it all got started in a way. He might remember me if you mention that I am Frankie Gadler's cousin from 1141 Elder Avenue.

    Joey was so nice to everyone. I remember him as a really nice down to earth guy. Always seemed to be in a good mood and with a smile on his face. That's how I remember him.

    It's almost 60 years since since my days on Elder, but when I saw this i just felt the need to each out and tell Joe that I'll always remember how you treated this kid from Elder and I pray for your speedy recovery !!
