w/ Joint Operation

Live at Buffalo Iron Works


Twenty6 Productions & Buffalo Iron Works Present: Pasadena w/ Joint Operation for a very special New Year’s Eve concert!


Pasadena was founded in 2000 by Joey Harkum on acoustic guitar and vocals, Aaron Hooper on bass, Will Finley on lead guitar and Ben Cowdery on drums. The band started out as a group of three friends from Pasadena, MD – Joey Harkum, Will Finley and Aaron Hooper. “We were too young to get into open mics, so we repeatedly sneaked in and performed anyway in and around our hometown. Eventually the three of us began to be referred to as “the boys from Pasadena,” and the band name “Pasadena” was born.” 

The band is known as an “originalist” in a business that loves cover songs, they only perform their own work. Describing them can be a challenge. A mixture of “singer/songwriter driven rock, reggae and ska” does a good job of covering most of what they produce when together but really just begins to scratch the surface. The band built up a strong following in their hometown and throughout the U.S., connecting with audiences through original music marked by smooth bass lines, personal lyrics, infectious rhythms and lush harmonies.

However, in 2017 after relentless touring across the US, the band decided to hang it up. Inevitably the retirement was short lived as they decided to play again with a reunion show to a sold out crowd at Baltimore Soundstage show in August of 2019 and the itch to start playing again started. The band is currently still only playing sparingly but enough to keep their fans happy and wanting more. If you see them coming to your town make sure you don’t miss it because it might just be your last chance.

Joint Operation

Joint Operation is a powerful rock n roll group from Baltimore, MD. This explosive four-piece has made quite a presence up and down the East Coast and throughout the Midwest. JO has been billed with some of the biggest names in the genre, and played some of the biggest stages in the Midatlantic.

Looking into the core of their music, you can hear influences of bands they all grew up loving. A little like the musicianship of the Beatles mixed with the funkiness of RHCP, followed by a smooth crisp Rock feeling, and you got JO.JO is a power duo of singer/songwriters Josh Lewis (vocals/guitar) and Fabrizio Scotto (vocals/drums). The two met as teenagers in Baltimore playing in small local bands. Once they met and combined forces, the mid atlantic/midwest funk-rock scene has NEVER been the same.

Accompanied by Mike Busch’s savory guitar licks, and you will be up and feelin’ the music in no time. The rhythm section is made up of Jesse Johnson’s funky bass hits that are always right in the pocket with Fabrizio’s hard-hitting fills and snaps. Joint Operation values the idea of connecting with others through their music, while giving the audience a live performance they will never, ever forget. The band hopes to create music and play live shows to help others forget the struggles of life, while screaming out their problems at the top of their lungs. JO brings feeling.
