This Sunday, September 1, the South Florida Blues Society turns Cheers Food, Drinks, Sports and Music in Fort Lauderdale into a “Roomful of Wind” for music lovers. For the 11th year in a row, this special event is a showcase of the some of the best blues Harmonica Players in South Florida that take a break from their regular bands to display their talents specifically focusing on the harmonica. The show assures no duplication, with each player performing his selection of four to five songs combining vocal and “inhaling/exhaling” talent with a finale featuring all players at the end of the show.
This year’s performers are Willy Lojo, Pix-E Ensign, Cadillac Chuck, Clay Goldstein, Nick Trill, and Dr. Lee. All players will be backed by R.J. Harman and Company. Richard “ RJ” Harman, also a featured harp player in this year’s show, is a two-time first place winner at the Florida Harmonica championships. He and his four-piece band were semi-finalists at the International Blues Challenge (2012) in Memphis, TN after having won at the Central Florida Blues Challenge in 2011. The show is from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. with doors open at 2:00 to get the best seating. Admission is $10.00 for non-members and $8.00 for current card-carrying Blues Society members. You can join the SFBS at the door to get your discount for this and other South Florida Blues Society events. It’s a great day of music with a very friendly, large “blues” family at Cheers located at 941 E Cypress Creek Road located just east of I-95. Phone 954-771.6337. www.CheersRockBar.com .
