History

The first Sunshine Music & Blues Festival took place in 2013. It called to the blues fans of the Boca Raton area and they showed up in droves to see some of their favorite groups perform live. Although there some inclement weather threatened to put the music on hold, the show went on and not even the weather could dampen the spirits of the music fans who showed up for the event. Legends like New Orleans native Dr. John brought the house down with his intense set. His wild look and voodoo charm made him even more of a spectacle to behold. Other artists like Matt Schofield and veteran guitarist Joe Louis Walker also took the stage, giving fans a taste of the blues-rock they came to hear. Then there was the headliners—the Tedeschi Trucks Band—who were every bit of the headlining act they were billed as. They brought an electric vibe to the traditional blues-rock genre, which made for a memorable concert experience.

This year's festival promises to be just as exciting, with the Tedeschi Trucks Band headlining once more. And with addition of other amazing acts like Galactic, Hot Tuna and The Ringers, the two-day festival of intense music and all of the most delicious local cuisine you could ask for will be an experience to remember.


Trivia

At last year's star-studded Sunshine Music & Blues Festival, fans were treated to three days of amazing music and memorable appearances from some of their favorite artists. Fans were so devoted to the artists and to the festival, that they even trekked through mud and inclement weather to be a part of the event. They showed up to watch blues rockers, funk jam bands and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers caked with dirt and ready to rock. Despite the less-than-ideal conditions, fans didn't seem to mind. They were right there, rocking out to every song as if it really were a "sunshine" music festival.


About the Artists

Each year the Sunshine Music & Blues Festival brings all of your favorite blues-rock acts to the sunny Florida for two days of amazing music, food and fun. This year's lineup is not to be missed. Here are a few of the bands who will be performing.

Tedeschi Trucks Band, who headlined last year's event, is coming back for more. They are giving fans a taste of the music from their second studio album, Made Up Mind, and selected songs from their first effort, Revelator, which won the Grammy Award for "Best Blues Album" in 2012. They will be bringing their gritty, blues-rock to their large following of devoted fans who seem to show up in droves to all of their performances.

Galactic is a funk and jazz jam band from New Orleans has been performing together since the early 90s, and includes bassist Robert Mercurio, guitarist Jeff Raines, organist Richard Vogel, drummer Stanton Moore, saxophonist Ben Ellman and guest vocalist Corey Glover. The group began when Raines and Mercurio, who were childhood friends, moved to New Orleans to attend college. They became obsessed with the jazz and funk bands of the area and soon joined forces with other aspiring musicians to create this award-winning group.

Hot Tuna is a blues-rock band that is a spin-off of the popular band Jefferson Airplane. They perform mostly acoustic and electric versions of classic blues songs. The band first gained fame in the 1970s, and has continued to have a consistent presence in the blues-rock world. In 2011, the band released their first album in more than 20 years, and has seen renewed interest and devotion to their band from old and new fans.
