Vassar, CDJ Reunite for Club Paradise Tour

Phil Vassar (“American Child”) will headline a limited string of dates with opening acts Carolyn Dawn Johnson and Sixwire. The Club Paradise Tour kicks off Sept. 20 in Lynchburg, Va., which is Vassar’s hometown, and runs through Nov. 24 in Reading, Pa. The tour’s aim is to recreate the energy of the early days when old friends Vassar and Johnson were aspiring songwriters. Johnson worked for two years as a bartender for Vassar when he owned a Nashville nightclub; Sixwire was Vassar’s house band. Vassar and Johnson will compete for the Horizon Award at the CMA Awards on Nov. 6. 09/11/02
