Sunshine Jazz Presents Bluesman Joey Gilmore Feb 26, 2017 at Miami Shores Country Club

Sunshine Jazz Concert 
Series Presents
The Joey Gilmore Band!

Sunday, February 26, 2017 ~ 6-9pm

The monthly Sunshine Jazz Concert Series continues on Sunday February 26th with an appearance by the internationally acclaimed blues master, Mr. Joey Gilmore. In the words of our own China Valles The Mahj, “THE BLUES, The backbone of America’s music”, and nobody does it better than Joey Gilmore!

Joshua “Joey” Gilmore was born in Ocala, FL. An electric blues and soul blues singer, songwriter and guitarist, Gilmore has shared the stage with James Brown, Etta James, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, and Little Johnny Taylor among many others. His love for the guitar began in his teens, inspired by the local barber and minister who played a flat body, electric guitar with no amplifier. He hung around the barbershop and by watching and listening he learned to play the guitar and gained a reputation as a talented boy.

Since those early days, Joey has established himself as a Florida legend and a highlight at blues festivals and night clubs all over the world where he’s considered among the best soul blues and R&B singers in the business. In 2006 Joey Gilmore won one of the most distinguished and internationally coveted awards in all of blues, the IBC. He outscored all artists worldwide while showcasing his amazing talent at a blues industry event…In 2008 he was handed the Blewzzy Award for best song, BLUES ALL OVER YOU.

Don’t miss this special evening with a true King of the Blues. Sunday, February 26th from 6:00pm- 9:00pm at Miami Shores Country Club, 10000 Biscayne Blvd., Miami Shores, FL 33138.

UPCOMING PERFORMANCES

Saturday March 11, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. 
Two Time Grammy Award Nominee 
And the Award Winning 
Frost Concert Jazz Band 

“Berg burns hard, his fingers flying over the keyboard while his body nearly levitates off the bench. Exhilarating . . . filled with breakneck parallel runs, sudden rhythmic shifts and harmonic modulations that leave the crowd breathless!”?- L.A. Times Sunday Magazine

The All Music Guide says "Shelly Berg is one of the finest pianists around in the early 21st century playing modern mainstream jazz." His 2005 CD, Blackbird (Concord) reached #1 in US jazz radio (Jazzweek) and garnered Record of the Year and Artist of the Year nominations. Shelly maintains a busy worldwide schedule of jazz festival and club performances. He has performed, recorded and arranged for renown jazz vocalists Patti Austin, Nancy Wilson, Bobby McFerrin and Dionne Warwick to name a few. He has performed and/or recorded with a "Who's Who" of jazz legends.



Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. 
A night of Romance, Swing, and the Blues with the 
& The New World School of the Arts Jazz Band 

“The Genius of Modern Piano.” - Wynton Marsalis 
“His combination of talent, ambition, discipline, stylistic openness and resourcefulness suggest that he is a remarkable musician—perhaps even a phenomenon…” - Michael West, Jazz Times

Marcus Roberts lost his sight when he was just 5 years old. But that didn’t stop him from becoming one of the top pianists of his generation. A prodigious talent, Roberts landed his first recording contract at age 15. At age 21 he began touring with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Band. After six years with Marsalis, he left to tour to record with his own band. Roberts’ critically-acclaimed legacy of recorded music reflects his tremendous versatility as an artist; his recordings include solo piano, duets, and trio arrangements of jazz standards as well as original suites of music. In 2014, Marcus Roberts was honored to have his life and work featured on a segment of the celebrated CBS News television show 60 Minutes. The show, entitled “The Virtuoso”, traced Roberts’ life to date from his early roots in Jacksonville and at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind to his remarkable career as a modern jazz musician.

Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes - A name as recognizable as their "Jersey Sound"!

Exuberant 
Rhythm and Blues!

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 ~ 7pm 
Special guest opening act The Gary Douglas Band! -
Rhythm and Blues Infused Rock 'n Roll!
at the
Mt. Dora Community Center
520 N Baker Street

The Godfather of "the New Jersey Sound," Southside Johnny is again touring across the continent!

In a business where success is defined as getting a second single and longevity measured in nanoseconds, simply surviving for thirty-plus years is a rare accomplishment. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have not only survived, they have flourished: more than thirty albums, several EPs and a box set; thousands of live performances around the globe; a legion of dedicated and enthusiastic fans; dozens of classic songs; and a release named by Rolling Stone one of the “top 100 albums of the 70s and 80s.” Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes emerged from the New Jersey shore scene in 1974, and though they carried over a significant influence from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the Jukes evolved as more of a white R&B horn band in the Memphis Stax Records tradition. The band is well known for high-energy shows and no-hold barred songs, including I Don’t Wanna Go Home, Havin’ A Party, The Fever, Talk To Me, Trapped Again and This Time It’s For Real. Still tinged with the exuberant rhythm and blues feel that is the Jukes’ trademark, and loaded with the driving sound of the legendary Jukes horn section, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue to expound their signature Jersey Shore sound - all for the sheer joy of it!
