Share this

The festival has become a haven for thousands of Blues lovers who gather on the grounds of Cape Coral’s German-American Social Club each year. Those who attend enjoy a day of live music, browsing vendors, and soaking in the atmosphere.

Each year the festival mixes a diverse group of both national and local acts to fill the day with genuine Blues music. This year the headline act for the festival will be Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King. The Texas band has been a mainstay on the Blues live circuit all around the world. With King’s soulful vocals and Kubek’s fiery guitar work, the band has been a favorite to Blues fans since 1991.

This year’s festival will also present such acts as; Samantha Fish, Tommy Lee Cook and the Boys of Buckingham with Candace Zona, Southern Hospitality, Ellie Lee and Blue Fury, and local band Deb & The Dynamics, who will feature special guest Deborah Coleman. This will be Coleman’s second time playing the festival; she headlined the show in 2004.

Deb and the Dynamics have become a mainstay in Southwest Florida, performing at a variety of clubs and events around the area. The group has also become a staple at the festival. For this year’s festival, the band the band has hooked up with Cape Coral’s Trafalgar Middle School’s Choir for a special performance that they say will sure to amaze the audience.
