Dana Paul is known not only as a singer’s singer, he’s regarded as a musician’s singer. His sensational vocal talents are internationally recognized and, paired with a charming personality and energetic stage presence, Dana has been on the A List for many years. His musical influences are easily apparent – from Tony Bennett and Joe Williams to Al Jarreau, George Benson, Frank Sinatra, Lou Rawls and Mel Torme to hipsters like Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling. His “Elektric- Fused Jazztet” promises to deliver an unforgettable performance of exciting Jazz. Dana Paul has a superb mastery of vocal performance and collaboration and, coupled with an immense passion for music and people, and joined by his stellar band mates, audience members will surely be taken on a fabulous musical journey.

Brian Murphy, joining Dana on Piano and Keyboards, enjoys a long and esteemed career. Brian created, supervised and recorded many special arrangements for the King of Latin Music - Tito Puente, and has been Music Director/Accompanist with artists as diverse as Ira Sullivan, Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Arturo Sandoval, Albert Collins, The Dance Theatre of Harlem, Dame Shirley Bassey, Dana Paul and more.

Drummer, Carlomagna Araya, has degrees from U.M’s Frost School of Music and formal training at Berklee College of Music. One of the busiest players on the scene, he has performed on two multiple-Grammy nominated albums, winning “Best World Music Album” and “Best Tropical Contemporary Album” with Ruben Blades. Araya’s versatility has earned him opportunities to perform in many prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, Apollo Theater, Olympia Theater (Paris), and Jazz festivals including Montreux, JVC, Hamburg, Monterey, and Puerto Rico’s Heineken Jazz Fest.

Bassist, Nicky Orta, is from a musical family and discovered his calling at a young age. He has studied with some of South Florida’s finest instructors including Vince Bredice, John Georgini and Whit Sidener. Nicky’s versatility has enabled him to play with many top artists including Arturo Sandoval, Randy Brecker, Wayne Newton, “Cachao” Lopez, Othello Molineaux, Toots Thielemans, James Moody, Duffy Jackson, Julio Iglesias and more. He received a Grammy nomination in 2006 for his work on the album “And Sammy Walked In" by Sammy Figueroa & His Latin Jazz Explosion.

jim gasior trio – Aug 27, 2010
mike gerber trio – Sept 10, 2010
john yarling and cut in/cut out – Sept 24, 2010

Jim Gasior has led the New World School of the Arts Jazz Ensemble to national success, recently winning the Jazz at Lincoln Center Essentially Ellington Competition. Mr. Gasior is well-known as a jazz and commercial pianist, keyboard and arranger. He has recorded and/or performed with Ed Calle, Arturo Sandoval, Duffy Jackson, Melton Mustafa, Kevin Mahogany, Alan Harris, Jay Leonhardt, Kelly Clarkson, Smokey Robinson, Patti Austin, Little Richard, Jane Oliver, Chayanne and Raul DiBlasio. He performs regularly with saxophonist Ed Calle, Wendy Pedersen, Fernando Ulibarri, and the Andrew Atkinson Quartet.

After devoting his youth to performing classical music around his native St. Louis, Mike Gerber discovered jazz in his late teens and developed a love for improvisation that flourishes today. A mainstay in the South Florida jazz community, where he's played on and off (but mostly on) since 1969, Gerber is admired for his dazzling, speedy bursts. He has recorded and performed with some of the biggest names in modern jazz, including Jaco Pastorious, David Liebman, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, and Pat Metheny. Mr. Gerber will be joined by Jamie Ousley on bass and Rodolfo Zuniga on drums.

One of the most versatile drummers on the scene today, John Yarling originally hails from the Motor City, Detroit. His great sense of timing and sensitivity is derived not only from his years of playing in a wide variety of musical settings, but also from his well-rounded studies (which include classical percussion at Florida State University and Jazz Studies at the University of Miami). His studies at the U of M were pleasantly interrupted by a year-long stint with multi-instrumentalist Ira Sullivan. John left Sullivan's band upon persuasion by the great trombonist, Curtis Fuller. Fuller encouraged John to take his talent to the Big Apple, where he recorded with Fuller and Pepper Adams, and worked with the Jaki Byard Trio & Big Band, among others. Eventually, John decided to return to South Florida, where he's become somewhat of an institution. He regularly performs with several of South Florida's most popular bands, he records, and he has established and teaches a percussion program at the Florida Youth Conservatory. He will be accompanied by Chuck Bergeron on bass, Nicole Yarling on violin, and Alex Weitz on tenor saxophone and Fernando Ulibarri on guitar.

North Central Florida Blues Society to host Band Competition


The North Central Florida Blues Society announces The 2010 Blues Challenge

Winners of the competition will represent NCFBS at the 2011 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, to be held Feb 1-5, 2011.

The NCFBS Blues Challenge will be held
Sunday, September 19th at 7:30 PM
At the Emerald’s Lounge
2441 Nw 43rd St, Gainesville, FL 32606

There are 3 classes of competition: band, single/duo and CD.

The rules for the band and single/duo competition are:
1. Groups must be from Alachua, Marion, Levy, Putnam, Gilchrist, Columbia, Union or Clay counties. The majority (>50%) of members in the group must reside in one of these counties. NCFBS wants to highlight blues musicians from the region we serve. That is why we have this rule.
2. At least one PERFORMING member of the group must be a full (non-Student, non-Honorary) NCFBS member. Managers/agents/representatives do NOT count toward the membership requirement. NCFBS feels that if you want to represent us at IBC Memphis you should be supportive of our overall goals and objectives enough to have a minimum of one active member from the performing group.
3. The entry fee for a band is $25, single/duo $20. All fees and door receipts will be distributed to the winners to defray travel costs to Memphis using a pro-rated system based on the number of performing individuals in both categories.
4. Bands will play a 25-minute set, with 15-minute setup. Points will be deducted for going over time per the IBC official rules (see item 5).
5. A limited backline and drum set will be provided. Personal amps are not allowed. The NCFBS follows the rules for the Memphis challenge at www.blues.org. In particular, see “Staging and Equipment” in the Official Rules page. NCFBS will provide PA and microphones.
6. NCFBS requires the winner to compete in Memphis, thus the expectation is that if you compete and win, you will attend. NCFBS will only provide funding from the entry fees and door receipts, no other funding from NCFBS will be provided. Thus it is incumbent upon the winner that they are capable financially of attending the IBC in Memphis. Why do we have this requirement? Entries into the IBC in Memphis are becoming more limited due to the popularity of the event. The Blues Foundation (the sponsoring organization of the IBC) has indicated that if blues societies fail to send a representative, they are in danger of losing their opportunity to send entrants in future years. Thus if you win and do NOT attend you endanger future entries for NCFBS!!!
7. Bands considering competing should contact Rico Morales (rico_moe@comcast.net, 904-655-0628). A firm schedule will be available on September 15th.
8. There will be several judges drawn from the regional music community. They will be using the same scoring criteria that will be used in Memphis, which is available at http://www.blues.org/ibc/#ref=ibc_scoring

The rules for the CD contest are:

The CD must be self-produced between November 1, 2009 - October 31, 2010
There is a $10 entry fee for CD’s
Five copies of the CD must be provided to NCFBS no later than September 10th

The 6th Annual Provincetown Jazz Festival™ will be held on August 13 - 14, 2010 at the Provincetown High School in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

For 2010, the Festival will celebrate the survival and revival of New Orleans Jazz as we commemorate the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. A portion of the proceeds from the Jazz Festival will be donated to the New Orleans Musicians Clinic which provides a health clinic for the uninsured jazz musicians and artists in New Orleans, and was founded and is directed by Bethany and Johann Bultman of Provincetown and New Orleans.

Paul's trip is sponsored by Threadhead Records, a fan-funded and volunteer run record company dedicated to helping New Orleans musicians rebuild their lives.

New to the festival and opening for the concert will be the BERKLEE RISING STARS featuring CLAY LYONS on Sax and MATT JOSEPH on Trumpet.
