Last night I had the privilege of not only listening to, but photographing a blues legend; Mr. Joey Gilmore. Music was provided by the Joey Gilmore Band and was hosted by Cadillac Jacks which is quickly becoming the premier spot for incredible blues music. A special thanks to Willie Miller of Mill-Jenn Entertainment for providing this incredible experience.
I was fortunate enough prior to the show to meet a couple of the band members including getting to shake the hand of the legend that handles a guitar as if it were a fine glass of wine. Such a wonderful thrill to meet Joey Gilmore. Joey’s band consists of R Hi-Hatt Carter who provides a silky bass undertone, the man Willie Miller on drums who also hits some incredible vocals and Sonny Boy Williams tickling the keys with a flair of a true bluesman. This four-piece ensemble was such a treat to listen to, each instrument was highlighted as well as each member lending their leads on vocals as well as back up. So much talent in one room should almost be illegal!
Joey Gilmore Band captivated the audience and provided a great evening of entertainment.
Cadillac Jacks is quickly becoming South West Florida’s premier spot for blues. If you live in South West Florida and not been out on Saturday to have dinner and catch a show you are missing a wonderful experience. Last night included members from the South West Florida Blues Society who truly enjoyed the experience.
If you find you want to enjoy a great evening out, head on over to Cadillac Jacks Blues night every Saturday put on my Mill-Jenn Entertainment. And on a side note, the onion rings are to die for!
