Black Joe Lewis is the realest motherfucker there is. When Covid sidelined his touring this past year, he started laying concrete to help support his baby mama and his kid. That's fuckin' real. When Joe and his band, the Honeybears, popped onto the national stage over a decade ago, many critics embraced him but still, there were some that maintained that they hadn't paid their dues.
Joe's still here. Still going. Still cashing checks and snapping necks. The dues of hard work; the delirious heights of the industry, as well as the disappointments and low-hanging fruit. Through this all, Joe's only honed his mastery over gut bucket blues guitar and his true voice. It's a vital and distinctly American voice that never anticipated the attention he wound up receiving, never went looking for it either. It just started happening.
The garage, the blues, the propulsive and synergistic live performances that inhabit the spaces of James Brown, Lightnin' Hopkins, and the MC5... those things happened naturally from the very beginning and could only be accurately communicated in the live experience, not a press release or a slick brand campaign. Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin Malcolm, The Dirtbombs, Detroit Cobras, the Strange Boys; these are some of the artists that Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears shared countless bills with; almost a roll call of the most influential soul and garage bands of the last twenty-five years.
Formed in 2004, Felix y Los Gatos is a national touring act with their roots planted firmly in the desert Southwest. With 16+ years of stage experience, the Gatos have an improvisational style that is uniquely their own. "Zydetejano Blues," as the band refers to their sound, is a unique blend of Latin, blues, Tejano, and rockin' outlaw country. The Gatos have been featured at the Telluride Blues Festival, Durango Blues Train, Zion Canyon Music Festival, and countless other large national festivals. Their undying passion to play music has allowed them the privilege of sharing the stage with acts such as Grammy award-winning Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers, Tab Benoit, BeauSoleil, Ozomatli, Wayne "The Train" Hancock, as well as featuring John Popper of Blues Traveler on the track "Hot Damn" from their album OCHO. Felix y Los Gatos remains one of the most popular and musically diverse sounds in the Southwest.
