January Blue Tuesdays’ performances:
January 2: Change of Tune. JL Fulks started playing guitar at age 13. He was inspired by his father’s love of the blues. Fulks made a name for himself playing in rock bands until a few music courses opened his heart to the blues. In 2016, the JL Fulks Band won South Florida’s Regional Blues Challenge. He is currently on an international tour.
January 9: Triple Threat. Rachelle Coba is a songwriter, singer, and guitar player. Her skill and intensity set her apart from the pack. This soul-gripping songstress has the ability to capture an audience and hold them spellbound throughout her performance.
January 16: The Best of the Beat. Rockin’ Jake has been hailed by many as one of the premier harmonica players in the country. He’s conjured up his own sound, which is a hybrid of second line, swamp funk, blues, and zydeco. Jake and his band pour their souls into every performance, consistently bringing the audience to their feet. He is a five-time winner of OffBeat Magazine’s coveted Best of the Beat award for best harmonica player.
January 23: Blues Poetry. Tas Crus is considered one of the most unique bluesmen in the trade. His paradoxical performances are described as raucous and rowdy, yet gentle and sweet. While Crus describes himself as a storyteller, Down Beat magazine calls his music “blues poetry.” The passion and power Tas Crus brings to the stage leaves his audience intoxicated.
January 30: Best of the Blues. Joey Gilmore taught himself to play guitar at an early age and began performing soon after. His band of youths played in local clubs they were too young to legally enter. He became a popular figure on the blues scene accompanying famous names like James Brown, Etta James, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, and Johnny Taylor. In 2006, The Joey Gilmore Band was proclaimed the Best Blues Band in the World, taking first place honors at the International Blues Challenge.
