Key Largo has never seen a lineup of Blues stars like this. Last year, the event drew enthusiastic crowds from all over, and Robert DiGiorgio, owner of Bayside Grille and Sunset Bar, promises that this year will prove to be even better.  Bayside Grille & Sunset Bar will bring these incredible artists with their wonderful, deep and rich musical history. For example, Nick Moss is a Blues legend and a 16 time BMA nominee. JP Soars and his two string cigarbox guitar is well known for being a monster guitar player as well as the 2011 International Blues Challenge winner. Todd Wolfe has been lead guitarist for Sheryl Crowe and Carla Olson, and his original songs have been covered by such great artists as Faith Hill and Stevie Nicks. Joel DaSilva’s résumé includes performances with heavy hitters like B.B. King, A.C.Reed, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Reverend Horton Heat, and he has been the opening act for J.J. Grey, Nick Curran, the Smithereens, Foghat, Los Lobos, The White Stripes, The Black Crowes, Nighthawks and Jimmie Vaughan. This year’s finale brings Mac Arnold’s Cornbread & Collard Greens festival to Key Largo for 3 nights, May 15, 16, 17.
 
Bayside Grille owner Robert DiGiorgio says, "We are thrilled to welcome such great international artists to Key Largo again this year. Last year’s, event along with the Downtown Key Largo Songfest has put Key Largo on the international music scene. The response has been overwhelming from both the performers and the fans. We have people planning their Key Largo & Florida Keys vacations around some of our performer’s schedules.”
 
When asked how he entices the artists to attend, DiGiorgio says it's easy. “I ask them if they want to come to exotic Key Largo in the winter. Once they get here and perform, they always want to come back. International Blues star Debbie Davies even took some time to swim with the dolphins while she was here. Many performers comment on how the Key Largo fans are some of the best. They really enjoy the music.”
 

 

The event is sponsored by DiGiorgio’s Café Largo and Bayside Grille and will be held at their location in Downtown Key Largo at 99530 Overseas Highway.
