About the Little Jake 
& The Soul Searchers

Little Jake Mitchell is an authentic blues child prodigy and R&B singer who works as hard today as he did in his appearances at the Apollo Theater; as hard as he did on tour as "Mr. Excitement" with R&B immortals James Brown, Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, and Bobby Blue Bland, or at the Pensacola Blues Festival, when B. B. King encouraged him to stay in show business.


Little Jake & The Soul Searchers—that's what you get when you combine Jake with The Silver-Sonic Horns and a powerful rhythm section. The band recalls authentic R&B stagecraft in support of a classic repertoire of soulful songs. Depending on the venue, Jake and the band treat audiences to sights and sounds seldom seen or heard since the golden age of R&B: opening singers, Tran “The Piano Man” Whitley and drummer, Hal "Halag8r" Saylor; a dynamic, audience-walking lead singer; a strolling horn section; a full-time emcee/announcer, Kenny "The Conductor" Eunice; and one of the funkiest rhythm sections around. The band's roots are deep, featuring sidemen who worked with Ike and Tina Turner, Billy Joe Royal, Ernie K Doe, Hues Corporation, and other R&B and rock pioneers.

The Silver-Sonic Horns, originally organized as The Blacklash Horns by Charlie Blade, trace their heritage back to 1969 when initially formed as the horn section for one of Florida's R&B pioneer band, Weston Prim & Blacklash: Blade on saxes, and long-time collaborator Brian 'T-Bone' Stevens on trombone. They are joined by Doug 'Skywalker' Meyers on trumpet. Classic R&B section-horn energy, funky improvisation by the whole horn section, a great appearance, and a topnotch sound system make The Silver-Sonic Horns an integral part of the Jake Mitchell experience.

The rhythm section features keyboardist and vocalist, Tran Whitley, holding forth on the real deal—a vintage Hammond B3 organ that anchors the band. Tran is joined by seasoned guitarist / backup vocalist, Charles Henry, who can play it funky, and does. On Fender bass, with years of experience beginning with Billy Joe Royal's road band, Allen McCollum keeps the bass line bumping and jumping. Providing energetic pulse and punctuation, and featured as an opening vocalist in every show: Hal Saylor on drums.

Little Jake Mitchell is one of Florida's great native-son ambassadors in rhythm and blues music. Little Jake & The Soul Searchers deliver authentic style and classic repertoire at every performance.



About the BBC

The Bradfordville Blues Club experience is like no other. It combines a truly unique location and atmosphere with the best the Blues has to offer. Hidden in a rural part of Tallahassee, the experience begins when you travel down the winding dirt roads and up the hill that lead to the Club.

Surrounded by fields of tall stalks of corn and old majestic oak trees dripping with moss, the one room cinder block "juke joint" has hosted an impressive list of nationally renowned Blues acts. The more than 50 original portraits autographed by the "Kings and Queens" of the Blues, which serve as table tops and wall hangings, attest to the quality of our entertainment. The Club is open on Friday and Saturday nights and offers a good selection of ice-cold bottled beers and wine.

For the serious Blues fan the BBC has a different artist each weekend, usually with different touring acts on Friday and Saturday nights. Club appearances in the past have included such notables as Bobby Blue Bland, Bobby Rush, the late Jimmy Rogers, Duke Robillard, Kenny Neal, Big Daddy Kinsey and the Kinsey Report, Big Jack Johnson, E.C. Scott, Eddie Kirkland, Johnnie Marshall, Darryl Nulisch, Sandra Hall, Ms. Lavelle White, Son Seals and a host of others.

The bonfire burns nightly under the large oaks and provides a great atmosphere for romance. You can usually meet the artists as they too enjoy the rustic surroundings out by the fire or you can just sit back and relax during the set breaks. So, please come join us for a memorable Blues experience at the Bradfordville Blues Club.

Just follow the years down the dirt roads into the past till you reach the juke joint under the stars. We'll keep the bonfire burning, the beer ice-cold and the music hot!

South Florida Jazz Hall of Fame Induction & Celebration July 24, 2016


South Florida 
Jazz Hall of Fame
Induction Ceremony & Celebration!

Sunshine Jazz Organization is proud to announce 
this 7th installment of the very important tribute 
founded in 2009 by international recording artist, 
Jazz vocalist and SJO founding member, 
Ms. Alice Day. 

Sunday, July 24, 2016 ~ 6-9pm

“The South Florida Jazz Hall Of Fame idea had been on the back burner for far too long. The realization was past due and, in January 2009, the work actually began. In an effort to pay homage to, show appreciation for, and pay tribute to some of South Florida’s legends, present and past, this is a mere “thank you”. We honor those who made/make it possible for us to participate and prosper, and those who have made an impact in the world of Jazz on these South Florida shores, and on the world stage. 

We are proud of our heritage and of the contributions South Florida has made and continues to make for the preservation and authenticity of a culture, of a people, and of America’s classical music, Jazz. Although we feel this acknowledgement is gaining ground, it was, as stated above, long past due. We have so many who are deserving of this distinction, so we can look forward to many more induction ceremonies." - Ms. Alice Day

This year we celebrate the induction of our chosen 2015 honorees:
1. Tony Castellano - Piano *
2. Don Cohen – Promoter *
3. John “Spider” Martin – Saxophone *
4. Nicole Yarling – Vocalist/Violin/Educator
5. Dr. Lonnie Smith – Hammond B3 Organ
6. Duffy Jackson - Drums

* Posthumously

Please join your South Florida Jazz community as we bear witness to this wonderful and historic annual event on Sunday, July 24th, 2016 at Miami Shores Country Club. The festivities will be presented from 6:00PM until 9:00PM so come prepared to have a very good time – eat, drink, be merry and honor those who have kept, and continue to keep, the Jazz flame burning! The Sunshine Jazz Organization will also sponsor a Silent Auction featuring some great Jazz memorabilia.

The Jimmys - Bringing Good Times with Good Time Blues to Florida in 2017


THE JIMMYS
COMING TO FLORIDA'S
STAGES IN 2017!
THEY JUST DON'T KNOW 
WHERE OR WHEN YET!
AWARD-WINNING,
MUSIC-MAKING,
GOOD-TIMING,
CROWD PLEASING,
TOO POPULAR FOR THE MIDWEST,
THE JIMMYS!

One of Summer Festival Season’s Top Ten Acts
"I’d never heard of Madison, WI’s The Jimmys before I saw them at Bluesfest. Led by Jimmy Voegeli on keyboards and vocals, they upstaged Dave Mason and blew the crowd away with their swing blues (Voegeli also got up to jam with Tinsley Ellis). Watch out for the Jimmys, a band on the move." - Arnold Goodman, Elmore Magazine.


The Jimmys have been tearing up stages with their blend of blues, soul, funk and R&B for nearly 10 years. Award-winning keyboardist/singer/songwriter Jimmy Voegeli has assembled an all-star lineup: Perry Weber, veteran guitarist/singer/songwriter brings an authentic blues sound; Mauro Magellan, of the Georgia Satellites, drives the band with some mighty drumming; John Wartenweiler ties it up with powerful bass lines and a deep groove. The Amateur Horn Stars - Pete Ross, Saxophone; Darren Sterud, trombone; and Mike Boman, trumpet - combine 50+ years' experience touring the world, playing with Clyde Stubblefield, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Davina and the Vagabonds, Youngblood Brass Band, B.B. King and his All Stars, and many others.  

With multiple awards under their belts, and a growing legion of fans, the band will crush anyone in their path on their way toward absolute galactic domination [we're pretty sure no one ever reads this far]. Get yourself to the next performance and see what everyone is hollerin' about.

Keep up to date here and on FACEBOOK & TWITTER for 
show dates, pictures, and video from the road. Or get it
direct by signing up for their EMAIL LIST.

The Jimmys know how to have fun,
and know we have fun here in 
Florida, and they want in on it...
Ask your favorite venue/festival 
to make that happen!
