I will be on the road for the entire month of May. Please see the “Performance Calendar” link for details. I’ll be traveling solo this time and using three different bands to back me up, as my regular rhythm section can’t travel. I’ll be doing a mix of full-band and solo acoustic material on all of the stops, except for Pomeroy, IA and a house concert near Calgary, where I will be doing strictly solo acoustic performances. Also, this will be my first time to British Columbia, CA and I’m extremely excited to come over there and share my stuff. I hope that you’ll help me spread the word and also that you’ll follow me on Instagram by clicking HERE. I will regularly be posting pics and video from the road.

We're currently in the mixing process for the Live DVD that we filmed last year! If all goes well, we should be able to have it in your hands by summer. Also, check the calendar for upcoming tour stops in May and come see me if you are close. I will be in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, Alberta and B.C. (Canada), and who knows where else! I hope your year is off to a great start and I look forward to sharing a song with you soon. Cheers! - Jason
Hello and Happy Halloween to everyone! We have a cool event coming up on December 15th at THE SANCTUARY in McKinney, Texas. We will be shooting a live concert DVD which will be released around the middle of 2018. This is a very beautiful and intimate room and it's a great place to see a show. There will be a professional film crew capturing all the cool elements of our show. We strongly urge anyone who can to attend and be a part of Hoodoo Witch history. You might even make it onto the DVD itself! Get your tickets now before they sell out. There are tables close to the stage, regular seating, and general admission tickets available. Here is the link: https://www.showclix.com/event/JasonElmoreMcKinney. See you in December! Cheers.
Jason will be hitting the road in September for a short tour of the Midwest and Canada. Joining him on bass will be Chris Gipson (Zac Harmon Band) and original Hoodoo Witch drummer Beau Chadwell (Jim Suhler & Monkey Beat). They will be hitting Wyoming, Montana, Edmonton, and Calgary, with 3 dates at The Blues Can (a favorite venue of the band). Check the "performance calendar" link for details and venues. Please spread the word and come see us when we're in your area!
We have begun writing and debuting some new material lately! Lots of hard rocking, Van Halen-inspired, guitar-oriented stuff has been showing itself in the newer songs. Could the next album be an all hard-rock endeavor? We'll have to just wait and see how the cookie crumbles. In the meantime, check the 'performance calendar' and come see us when you're able. We'll be busting out and tightening up the new stuff at venues that are appropriate for heavier music but we will also still be throwing down our signature blend of blues, classic soul, and rock as we always have, wherever we go. See ya out there! Please be sure and say 'howdy' if you make it out. We love to visit with our friends. Cheers!
5/1/2017 We are hitting the road this week for a short tour with Bobby Chitwood (Bugs Henderson & The Shuffle Kings original bassist) substituting in for Brandon on bass. We are excited to reconnect with our old friends in Kansas City MO, Lincoln NE, Pomeroy IA, Springfield IL, & Indianapolis IN. Check the 'performance calendar' section of the website for venues and showtimes. Come see us and let's do the damn thang!
Jason and the boys are gearing up for a couple of tours in March, April, and May! In March, Jason will perform solo acoustic shows in Rapid City SD, Helena MT, and Billing MT. Then Hoodoo Witch will rock Canada once again when they return to The Blues Can in Calgary and Blues On Whyte in Edmonton. Then in May, the band embarks on a trip through Kansas City MO, Lincoln NE, Pomeroy IA, Springfield IL, and Indianapolis IN with the legendary Bobby Chitwood filling in on bass guitar. Check the 'Performance Calendar' for exact dates and venues. Tell everybody big enough to tote money! We'll see y'all out there.
As we near the end of 2016, we just want to thank you all for your continued support for our album, Champagne Velvet, which released in September. A digital download or physical copy of the CD would make a swell gift. You can order both from the 'STORE' section of our website. As the band continues to grow and prepare for the next project, we would like to wish you and yours the very happiest of times this holiday season. Be safe, treat each other good, laugh often, and keep supporting live music! Happy Holidays and warmest regards from the entire HW crew.
Thanks to all of your support, our latest album "Champagne Velvet" has done exceptionally well since it's release date last month. It has enjoyed several consecutive weeks at the top position on Roots Music Report's 'blues' and 'blues/rock' charts, and has maintained the #1 position on the Texas Music Charts for 4 weeks straight. Additionally, it debuted at #13 on the Billboard Blues Chart. None of that would have been possible without your support for our work so THANK YOU!!! You can order the CD and/or a digital download of the complete album or individual songs in our 'STORE' section of the website.
We will be putting on one final CD release show at THE GUITAR SANCTUARY in McKinney, TX on November 11th. We will be playing the entire album live from start to finish, as well as several other cool tunes. We strongly urge that you show up and be a part of Hoodoo Witch history by seeing this album performed live and hearing some backstory about the tunes. We will have some cool new merchandise for sale such as several t-shirt designs, posters, CDs, and some cool jewelry made from Jason's guitar picks by the lovely and talented Lauren Elmore. To pre-order your tickets or reserve a table, please go to https://www.showclix.com/event/JasonElmoreMcKinney
Thanks again, folks. CHEERS AND WARMEST REGARDS FROM THE ENTIRE HOODOO WITCH CREW!
