With so many talented artists to showcase,the South Florida Blues Society (SFBS) has decided to hold not one but two showcases this year! The 13th Annual Guitar Showcase will be held Sunday, May 19th, 2019 at The Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton. This annual event features many of the finest blues guitarists in South Florida. Several of the showcased “guitar heroes” are former International Blues Competition winners, however, this event is not a competition but rather a celebration of the talent which we have right here in our own backyard.
Doors open @ 3:00 pm and the show gets started at 4:00 pm. Part II with even more “guitar heroes” on Sunday, July 14th, 2019. More details can be found following this event at the SFBS website.
- Joey Gilmore (2006 International Blues Challenge Winner)
- J.L. Fulks (2017 International Blues Challenge Semi-Finalist)
- Jon Zeeman
- “Famous” Frank Ward
- Jack Levy
- John Earl Walker
- “Good Rockin'” Johnny Wenzel
- Robert Ross (N.Y. Blues Hall Of Fame Inductee)
- Christopher Dean
* No particular order. Lineup subject to change at any time.
The Rhythm Section backing up all these fine guitarists will be The Drew Preston Trio with Craig Stevens on bass & “Muff” Cunningham on drums.
Don’t see your favorite guitarist? Chances are they’re either on the road, have a conflicting gig, or will be in the next Showcase scheduled in July.
