About this event

* We’re all vaxxed and boosted and trust you are too. I don’t wear a mask while performing but whatever you choose is cool.

This will be a one-of-a-kind evening of music where every audience member is a VIP: see me perform my life's work and together we'll make a happy ruckus in an airy, colorful room surrounded by great books. (Designed by lovely & talented Elizabeth Rogers).

I've been lucky, played lots of exciting gigs in cool places, but Roebling concerts have a magic vibe all their own. It’ll get (comfortably) loud but includes sweet spots where you can hear a pin drop—with dynamics unattainable in a larger venue. My nifty stereo Bose system sounds great so you'll hear exactly what I hear. You'll see why Roebling is my favorite Cincinnati area bookstore and place to play (Remember, this is the Newport location.).

I've thrown everything into a career-spanning show performing songs I wrote for The Raisins, The Bears, psychodots, my solo albums. If you’ve watched Fetters Is Cheap! on Youtube over the last couple years you’ll get the idea….

The concert features stripped-down acoustic / vocal renditions and plenty of rocked-out electric ones backed with studio tracks custom-mixed from source sessions, with cameos from notable musicians. I play my ass off keeping up with it all. My son Sam describes the concert as “performance + guitar lesson + recording workshop + storytelling time". We’ll break midway so you can freshen your drinks (BYOB!) and grab a snack. We'll provide water, ice, cups, etc.

Only 35 seats are available for this event so please don't wait to grab a ticket: small shows sell out quickly. This is looking to be my last public show in 2022.

Doors at 6 p.m. Show at 7 p.m. sharp.

*** Please: No talk , no cell phones and No Recording during the concert; that shit’s a buzzkill. In between tunes we'll converse about anything—that's part of the fun. Selfies are swell during intermission and at the end.


What can I bring into the event?

BYOB! Bring alcoholic beverages because we can't offer them. Roebling has tasty snacks for purchase and will provide cups, ice and water.


Yes! Merch Girl Swany Fetters will offer a nice assortment of goodies, most rare. Plus, it's a curated bookstore you may find irresistible.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No minimum age – but adult themes, humor, and a gleeful obscenity or two always pop up during a Fetters show.

What are my parking options?

Plenty of space on the streets around the bookstore.

What's the refund policy?

Due to limited seating there are no refunds, so yes: please commit. Otherwise we’re stuck with a seat we could have filled.

Oh, the horror ! In that case is my ticket transferrable?

Yep, just make sure the transferee is as nice as you are and lets Swany or Richard know upon arrival.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

A screen shot on your phone will suffice. We'll have your name on a list in case of tech problems.

Wheelchair access?

Yes. Roebling has a ramp, wide hallways and it'll be a snap to move chairs around to accomodate.
