The Honeyslides are a six-piece southern-fried funk, blue-eyed soul and scorching slide guitar band from Orlando, Florida. 

Besides the music, there will be a bevy of craft beers and gourmet food trucks.

Tom Craig Band On Tour Playing Indoor and Outdoor Florida Clubs in November

"MY GOAL FOR THIS RECORD 
WAS TO MAKE IT 100% BLUES"

“On Christmas Day, 1977 I got my first record player and my first record, ‘Bobby Bland and B.B. King Together Again...Live’. Three days later, on my 11th birthday, I got my first guitar. I was too young to understand where Blues music came from or what it was about, but I felt it touch me deeply. Today, I feel privileged to be part of this uniquely American artform. I am grateful for all the Blues artists who have had a sincere effect on me.” - Tom Craig

Good Man Gone Bad is ONLY available at shows.

“Good Man Gone Bad’ is just out and about to make
 a big splash in the blues world.”  – Tas Cru 

"Tom Craig is a bad man. Enjoy his new record, I do."

"An Intimate Evening With..." A Peter White Christmas in Hallandale Beach - The Ultimate VIP Concert Experience


PETER WHITE 
CHRISTMAS 2021 
with Mindi Abair and Vincent Ingala 

Saturday, December 11, 2021 ~ 8pm
Sport of Kings Theatre at Gulfstream Park
501 S Federal Hwy
Hallandale Beach, FL 33009
MAP 

Make your list and check it twice! This holiday concert is more than just nice!! A Peter White Christmas with Mindi Abair and Vincent Ingala is coming to town. Contemporary jazz lovers eagerly await this annual fun-filled concert, which has packed fans into halls and arenas coast to coast year after year. 

Peter White is an extraordinary and fluent acoustic guitarist whose skills are world-renowned. Revered saxophonist Mindi Abair returns with her dynamic vigor ready to captivate audiences far and wide. Vincent Ingala is no stranger to contemporary jazz audiences—his charisma, energy, and musicianship will put a smile on anyone’s face. 

Peter recalls, “My earliest memories of Christmas were probably not much different from many other people: snowflakes, tinsel, Santa Claus, reindeer, and the opening of presents surrounded by family. As a child, my father taught me to play Christmas music on my first instrument, the recorder, and my love for Christmas music has endured throughout the years. I hope this tour will be an opportunity for many Smooth Jazz fans to enjoy their favorite Christmas songs in a family setting. You know, I might even bring my recorder!” Peter White’s classic acoustic guitar style can be enjoyed through an ever-growing and best-selling catalog, including his latest release Music for Starlux Airlines (2019).
 
“Growing up, my family would get together for Christmas every year” Mindi reminisces. “My grandmother would cook oyster stuffing and rhubarb pie, and we’d all play and sing together. I still make a rhubarb pie every year in her honor. My grandmother gave me great advice early on, ‘If you play the piano you can be the life of any party!’ She was an opera singer and would sit and play piano and sing Christmas songs. My father would take over and play more rock/blues/jazz versions of Christmas songs and we’d all sing. And of course I’d pull out my sax and play along with my father on piano. What an amazing way to grow up, with music surrounding me, and weaving into my life so seamlessly from a young age.” Mindi’s newest release is her first “Best of” (2021) compilation on Pretty Good For A Girl Records which consists of 19 songs including her biggest hits, previously unreleased gems, a few of Mindi’s personal favorites, and her brand new single “April”.

Vincent Ingala - “I can vividly remember not being able to fall asleep waiting for Santa Claus to arrive on Christmas Eve. Somehow though, he always managed to get the job done while I was sleeping, and before I could catch him! I remember feeling extra special that Santa would place all of the gifts around the fireplace like a display, as opposed to them being wrapped under the Christmas tree. I would sneak downstairs multiple times with my flashlight to get a sneak peek before the sun would rise on Christmas morning! Memories such as these I will always continue to hold in my heart, and they are what makes Christmas a very magical time of the year.” Vincent’s latest release is Echos of the Heart (2020) on Shanachie Records.

Detailed schedule TBA.
at
This is an indoor festival that spans across 5
venues at the Marriott & Sheraton Hotels on the
Gulf of Mexico in Clearwater Beach, FL. Music
lasts all day and into the late evening.

Guitarist Nate Najar is making it known world-wide that he is one of this decade’s finest modern jazz exponents, and not by saying it, but rather playing it. He uses a distinctive technique to convey his artistic prowess- not many artists play acoustic classical guitar with right hand classical technique, yet it is the perfect choice for Najar’s comprehensive approach. Not restricted to single notes or chords, Nate seamlessly weaves melody, harmony and rhythmic freedom. The result is music that is swinging, emotional, inventive and interesting.

Enjoy Nate's Recorded Music:

A Taste of Jazz at Bailey Contemporary Arts features entertaining and educational encounters with the musical genre, accompanied by wine tastings. Join Martin Hand and the Gold Coast Jazz Quartet as they explore the origins of the music of jazz, how it moved throughout America and became the music it is today Jazz is the original music of America and is the basis for the popular music of the past and today. The Gold Coast Jazz Society has been a major presenter of jazz concerts, jazz education and jazz outreach programs in Broward County since 1992. They have maintained and preserved the heritage of jazz by presenting the music celebrating jazz's evolution over the past 100 years.

We welcome our patrons back to Bailey Contemporary Arts Center for our in-person A Taste of Jazz program. Every second Thursday join us for a new kind of combo featuring entertaining and educational encounters by Gold Coast Jazz Society musicians as they explore the origins of jazz, how it became the music it is today and the basis for the popular music of the past and present.
