Ghost Town Blues Band
Ghost Town Blues Band
Out of Memphis comes the Ghost Town Blues Band. With the warning that they are “not your grandpa’s blues band”, they offer an understanding of what makes Blues such a loved style of music, but with a unique contemporary approach. Horns, harmonies and homegrown instruments combined with an energetic and roots rich festival set makes Ghost Town Blues Band one of the “must see live bands on the festival circuit today.” Both Andrew McNeill behind the drums and Matt Karner on the bass guitar are a punishing rhythm section behind multi-instrumentalist/frontman Matt Isbell with raunchy cigar box guitar licks and raspy “Dr. John-like, whiskey and gravel-soaked vocals.” With the addition of Trombonist Suavo Jones, Cedric Taylor on B3 and Taylor Orr on lead guitar, the grooves go from funky to “funk-nasty” as the band gains more notoriety in the blues festival and jam circuit. They were the 2014 International Blues Challenge Runner-up.
“GTBB shows what can happen when the past is distilled through young sensibilities, voices, and instruments. This is 21st century blues at its best.” -Living Blues Magazine
Betty Fox Band
Betty Fox Band
With an extensive background in gospel and a lifelong passion for soul music, the Betty Fox Band has burst onto the Florida music scene in a whirlwind of controlled yet unabashed passion and has taken the hearts of anyone wise enough to lend her their ear. At age 27, this fiery songstress has her own musical project with quite a few heart wrenching, lyrically driven and musically sound original tracks that beg the question “What kind of life must this old soul have lived?” To support her talent, she has carefully selected musical heavyweights Josh Nelms on guitar, Matt Walker on bass, and Sam Farmer on drums to set herself up for nothing less than well deserved success. Fox was a 2015 International Blues Challenge finalist.
Bridget Kelly Band
Bridget Kelly Band
Inspired by classic and electric Blues, the Gainesville-based Bridget Kelly Band has placed their unique stamp on the Blues genre, with high-energy live performances and a hybrid sound that mixes Texas and Memphis Blues with various southern Blues traditions. The powerful and sultry vocals of singer Bridget Kelly along with the incendiary lead guitar work of Tim Fik forge a signature hybrid sound that combines female urban Blues with riff-driven rockin’ Blues guitar. Boasting a rock-solid rhythm section comprised of the powerful and dynamic Tim Mulberry on drums and the seasoned Mark Armbrecht on bass, their star continues to shine and rise.

Their continued success has been largely attributed to its insistence of giving it their all, every time they take the stage. Their passion for the music is evident in the energy of their live shows.

"Kelly’s voice is always powerful and pure, pushing through the ripping fretwork of her blues-partner and band guitarist Tim Fik, a guy with chops, licks and riffs to spare." - Iain Patience, Blues Magazine.
