The Blues Hounds
The Blues Hounds were formed in early 2006 by guitarist/vocalist JP Soars, who is originally from Arkansas. After backing up numerous high-profile local blues acts for years such as The Regulators, The Shadow Casters, Joel DaSilva and the Sideburns, The Nucklebusters as well as The Dave Shelly Band; Soars decided to form and front a band of his own. His three-piece band plays “Arkansas Blues,” paying homage to the likes of T-Bone Walker, Johnny Guitar Watson, Muddy Waters and Albert King, while incorporating some rock influences. The Blues Hounds are currently working on a full-length CD due to be released this fall.
Han Bennink and Misha Mengelberg
Han Bennink and Misha Mengelberg are without a doubt among the most influential and famous European jazz artists active today. Their individual and collective careers began in the early 1960s, with numerous award-winning recordings and collaborations with American music masters such as John Cage, Eric Dolphy, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Ben Webster and Wes Montgomery. True music pioneers, they have individually participated in the creation of a European style of jazz which has evolved into an independent identity, apart from the genre’s traditional American roots. You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to experience these two jazz masters from Holland up close and personal for their first-ever performance in Florida.
