Sunday, September 1st, South Florida Blues Society turns Cheers Food & Spirits in Fort Lauderdale into a “Roomful of Wind” for music lovers.
For the 11th year in a row, this special event is a showcase of the some of the best Blues Harmonica Players in South Florida that take a break from their regular bands to display their talents, specifically focusing on harmonica. The show assures no duplication, with each player performing his selection of songs, combining vocal and “inhaling/exhaling” talent with a finale featuring all players at the end of the show. This year’s performers are: Willy Lojo, Pix-E Ensign, Cadillac Chuck, Clay Goldstein, Nick Trill, and Dr. Lee.
All players will be backed by R.J. Harman and Company. Richard “RJ” Harman, also a featured harp player in this year’s show, is a two-time first place winner at the Florida Harmonica Championships. He and his four-piece band were semi-finalists at the International Blues Challenge (2012) in Memphis, TN after winning at the Central Florida Blues Challenge in 2011.
The show runs from 3:00 to 8:00 pm with doors open at 2:00 pm to get the best seating. Cost is $10.00 for non-members, $8.00 for current card-carrying* South Florida Blues Society members.
*(must show current membership card). You can join at the door to get your discount for this and other South Florida Blues Society events. It’s a great day of music with a very friendly, large “Blues” family at Cheers located at 941 E. Cypress Creek Road (off Dixie Hwy.) located just east of I-95. Phone: (954) 771-6337.
