The blazing hot guitar licks of North Longboat Key blues shredder RJ Howson & Friends. Howson cut his teeth sitting in with countless greats at some of Chicago’s most legendary blues clubs, and has maintained a steady stream of major festival appearances since making the move to Florida.

Belmont & Jones is the stage moniker for the superb, Tallahassee-based country-blues duo of Charlie Engstrom and Carrie Hamby.
With Engstrom deftly picking National Steel, and Hamby providing standard-acoustic accompaniment, the pair conjure early blues greats such as Memphis Minnie, Ma Rainey, Charley Patton and Blind Willie Johnson.
Both partners are strong, natural singers. Their repertoire ranges from familiar staples such as Tommy Johnson’s “Canned Heat Blues” and Fred MacDowell’s “Shake ‘Em on Down,” to obscure gems such as Geeshie Wiley’s “Skinny Legs Blues” and Frank Stokes’ “Bedtime Blues.” And, their originals sound authentic enough to have emanated from the grooves of an old 78.

Things really get cookin’ as Bradenton’s premier rockabilly blues hounds Doug Deming and the Jewel Tones proceed to get the crowd jumping, jiving and wailing. Backed by Andrew Gohman on upright bass and Devin Neel on drums, Deming summons the spirit of blues legends like T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian. The Detroit native honed his style over years backing up greats such as Louisiana swamp bluesman Lazy Lester, Chicago’s Johnny “Yard Dog” Jones and A.C. Reed, and Detroit’s own Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams. The band’s latest album “What’s it Gonna Take” spent two months on Living Blue Radio’s Top Ten Chart after being released through the Vizztone Label in October 2012.
