New Invisible Joy is an amazing band from Pittsburgh. They have a great British-pop/rock sound. Check out their site by clicking on the link below.

The first time we saw New Invisible Joy was at the Harrisbury Hilton on Feb 17, 2001 for the Millennium Music Conference. We met the guitarist in the women's bathroom...his name is Mike...We were mesmorized by their sound!! They were great!


This is a picture of New Invisible Joy. It was taken by (ironically enough) in the men's bathroom. In the back is John Schisler, the lead singer. In the middle, from left to right is Brian Colletti, the drummer, and Evan Handyside, the bassist. In the front is Mike Gaydos, the guitarist.

On March 30, 2001 we went to Pittsburgh. Friday night we saw Grapevine, and on Saturday night (March 31), we saw New Invisible Joy at Club Cafe. It was wonderful to see them again! They sounded teriffic!! We had fun listening to them play and talking to them for awhile.
Here are some pictures we took at the show.

I traveled once again to see New Invisible Joy, this time to Burgettstown for X-fest on May 18, 2001. They were great! The fence in front of the stage was a nice touch, and it was hillarious when the security guard warned us that there might be "surfing". We had a blast all day watching bands perform and running in to people, but NIJ was definately the highlight.
Check out some pictures of New Invisible Joy from X-fest below.

After a slight change of plans due to a car accident, we decided to stay in Pittsburgh Sunday May 20. New Invisible Joy was playing at the Shadyside Street Festival, so we decided to catch one last show.
It was so fun! There were sidewalk sales going on, and other bands playing before NIJ.
The band was a bit suprised to see us, and it was kind of a shock to us that we were there...we had planned to see No Show Ponies at Kite Fest in Camp Hill, but we didn't want to risk speeding home in the rinky-dink rental car that Mom still isn't comfortable in (she just doesn't realize that she has a REALLY BIG Logan...).
We're glad that we stayed. We had a great time.
Check out some of the photos we took Sunday.
