Blues Concert with Florida Legend Joey Gilmore

Blues Concert with Florida Legend Joey Gilmore In-Person

It's time to feel the blues and be moved  by the Joey Gilmore Band.  While you are at the concert be sure to explore our current exhibit 'Florida's Got the Blues'.  Florida legend Joey Gilmore is a distinguished figure in the world of blues and soul. He has played at festivals and venues all over the world, sharing the stage with greats such as James Brown, Etta James, Johnny Taylor, and Bobby Bland, among others. In 2006, Gilmore won the IBC, the most distinguished and internationally coveted award in all of blues. This is just one of many awards and honors bestowed upon Gilmore. 

As a teen he began his love affair with the guitar, learning from a local barbershop owner who was also a preacher. The minister’s electric guitar fascinated Gilmore and he would hang around the shop just to get his hands on the guitar. After learning through observation and practice, Gilmore’s talent would shine. Decades later, he’s well established and still getting better.
