JOHN BULL TRIO
From Montgomery Alabama Blues singer/harmonica ace John Bull takes his blues all over the southeast but is most at home in the real deal Juke joints of Alabama and Mississippi.
His relaxed delivery is the result of decades spent in entertaining in these venues.
John Bull is backed by organ and drums, giving a unique twist to an organ trio vibe.
International Performing & Recording Artist Joel DaSilva is an American/Brazilian/Ukrainian guitarist, singer and songwriter hailing from Chicago, Illinois, and currently based in Florida.
Joel’s combustible new blues sound combines elements of lo fi garage blues with a driving roots beat. He delivers the horny lyrics in a voice that recalls vintage rockabilly, but his lacerating leads are as potent as any laid down by the late great Hubert Sumlin.

JP SOARS' GYPSY BLUES REVUE
featuring Anne Harris
JP Soars is certainly not a typical Blues musician or a typical musician by any right. He encompasses a multitude of influences. While Soars has been an avid student of the Blues for many years in the late 90’s and early 2000’s he also immersed himself in the complex style of Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Jazz. Soars has been incorporating this style into his own shows for a long time and this certainly helps separate him from the rest of the pack. The Gypsy Blues Review ensemble is fronted by JP Soars and Anne Harris - singer, songwriter, violinist, recording artist and actress based in Chicago, Illinois. Her music has been described by various writers as incorporating a variety of influences, including traditional Celtic music, American folk-rock, Afrobeat, Soul, and chamber music.
