Sean Chambers Band
August 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $10
Florida born Sean Chambers is one of those musicians who has stood the test of time, playing with greats like Hubert Sumlin and headlining Blues festivals near and far. But he is equally comfortable playing an impressive gig circuit which takes him all over Florida and throughout the Southeast. Described as “A bad ass, a monster and the torchbearer that’s leading and lighting the way for the next generation of players and fans,” by Chris Spector of Midwest Record Chicago, Sean is fast to pass credit on to his band.
It’s always interesting to learn when an artist of any medium discovered his talent. Was it hard-earned, where hours and days in musical classes taught proper technique and a discriminating palate for certain musical genres? Was a teenage band an escape from the everyday doldrums, creating a person who couldn’t function in a 9 to 5 setting and who craved to be on a stage? For Sean, who at the tender age of 10 years old knew he loved music and wanted to perform, a sensible solution from his parents set him on his way. His second choice was guitar (first was drums, vetoed by his parents) and though he found the lessons tedious, his parents insisted he attend each one. While his mother listened intently to his practice sessions, Sean wavered from the monotonous teachings his musical teachers had in mind and began to jam by ear. He quickly learned he could play almost anything by listening and eventually taught himself to read music. So, in Sean’s case, it was more a matter of being born with a talent that patient and supportive parents nurtured. He had discovered his passion which would turn a boy with a dream into a blues musician with a plan. He began working hard at his dream and has not wavered from or regretted his decision.
