    You & I - Single by Jl Fulks



    Jeffrey Lynn Fulks Jr. now known as JL Fulks was born in Greenville, South Carolina in 1990. At age 13, he began playing guitar, after being inspired by his father's love for the blues.
    JL’s immediate prowess with the instrument led to him joining The Praise Band at a local Christian Academy. When his father noticed his son’s abilities, he gave him the Stevie Ray Vaughan
    album Texas Flood and told him, If you're going to play guitar, play it like that.” Soon after, JL joined an original rock band in high school.
    The group ended up winning his high school’s “Battle of the Bands.”

    In 2009, JL formed a rock band called Until Next Time, with three musicians from the local music scene. The band was very popular in the Greenville, South Carolina region and eventually won
    a Battle of the Bands competition, sponsored by Gorilla Productions. The band parlayed their success by winning the finals at Greenville's premier music venue The Handlebar.
    They were subsequently voted Greenville's best rock band and were awarded free recording time at Sit-n-Spin Studios, as well as a headline opportunity at The Handlebar.
    Things were looking up for the popular band as several independent labels were interested in signing them, but creative differences among the members
    led to the band breaking up before any success could be achieved.

    It wasn't long before his abilities were recognized and JL was being asked to sit in with many national acts. He has shared the stage with such names as:
    Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Matt Schofield, Chris Duarte, JP Soars and the Red Hots, Rickey Godfrey, Mac Arnold and the Plate Full of Blues Band,
    Victor Wainwright & The Wildroots, Damon Fowler, Southern Hospitality, Brandon Santini, Boo Boo Davis, David Shelley and Bluestone, Bob Corritore,
    Jay Stollman, Joey Gilmore, John Nemeth, Terry Hanck, Joey Gilmore, and many more.

    Persistence paid off when JL was approached by Brandon Santini in the fall of 2013. After seeing JL perform at the Funky Biscuit one night with
    David Shelley and Bluestone, Santini asked JL to play guitar for his band. JL relocated to Memphis, Tennessee in December of 2013,
    after three successful tours to play full-time in Brandon Santini's band.

    JL worked as Brandon's right hand man for eight months where he opened the show for Brandon and drove the band as his lead guitarist.
    He toured the country and headlined with Brandon at many great blues clubs such as Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago, Bradfordville Blues Club,
    Boston's on The Beach, The Slippery Noodle, The Rum Boogie Cafe, The Blues Hall and many others. Larger showcases became the norm as the band
    performed at some great blues festivals such as The Daytona Blues Festival, The Springing the Blues Festival, and the Southwest Florida Blues Festival
    where they opened for legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter. It didn't take long before JL's guitar playing was noticed by blues editors, writers, and legendary musicians.

    After JL's performance at The Southwest Florida Blues Festival, he was told by Johnny Winter's manager that Johnny was impressed by his guitar playing
    and that he insisted that she come find him immediately bring him backstage to meet with him. The Blues legend and the young guitar phenom had an
    encouraging conversation about music and life -- quite an endorsement for young JL Fulks. That night lives on every night he plays his Gibson ES-335 that Johnny Winter signed.
    Although now, to honor Johnny and to preserve the valued instrument, JL mostly plays a new, Heritage H150.

    Now, at 25 years old, JL Fulks has already lived the dream that most musicians work their whole lives to achieve. JL has relocated to South Florida and started
    fronting his own trio again performing at the best clubs and festivals in South Florida. JL continues to collaborate with many artists and plays as a part-time
    sideman for some legendary blues musicians. He is also a private gCoral Springs, FL.uitar instructor and a substitute teacher at the School of Rock in

    JL recently opened for Tab Benoit, Doyle Bramhall ll, Donavon Frankenreiter, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and Robert Randolph & Family Band.

    JEFF JENSEN - I'm Comin' Home - Earl's Hideaway, Sebastian FL - 04 21 2019
    See also:

    JEFF JENSEN - PRODUCER, COMPOSER, BLUES GUITARIST
    Sometimes all it takes is a tiny spark to ignite a raging inferno. For Jeff Jensen, the spark occurred in 2011. Feeling the need for a fresh start, he loaded up his car to head back to his boyhood home in California. Just as that journey was to begin, a deep and unexpected calling starting boiling inside, Jensen changed directions and headed to Memphis. There was no job waiting for him; no plan, no family, no band, just a lone friend with a temporary place for him to stay. But our intrepid guitar player felt it was the right move, the only move. In less than thirty hours after arriving, he met Brandon Santini and was offered the opportunity to be his guitarist. Soon after, Jeff became music director for the Brandon Santini Band.

    The inferno has been building ever since. After two years, almost 500 shows and three recordings with Santini, Jensen re-formed his band with long-time friend and musical collaborator Bill Ruffino (bass). Then they recruited Memphis native Robinson Bridgeforth as drummer. They hit the road and never looked back.

    Most people are in for a shock the first time they experience a Jeff Jensen Band performance. It starts with the trio mixing an eccentric blend of soul, rock, and American roots music with a deep blues influence. Suddenly Jensen feels the spirit, transforming into a whirling dervish of sight & sound as he bounds across the stage, barely able to contain himself as he wrenches stark, biting six-string explosions from his guitar. His passion is there for all to see, a rare occurrence in these times of buttoned-down music-making. At first, the sheer emotional force he creates can be a bit overwhelming. Then you realize that all art is an expression of the soul, of the power of the life-giving force that created the universe. And Jeff feels it is his responsibility to make the effort to communicate his passion with each member of the audience every night. After all, music is art, and art is the physical form of emotion.

    In 2015, Jensen released the vibrant Morose Elephant album that captures the flavor of the band’s creative force. Combining seven originals with covers of songs from Memphis Minnie and Amos Milburn plus a traditional gospel hymn, Jensen articulates the depth of his musical vision with help from a number of friends including Victor Wainwright, Reba Russell, and Annie Harris. The disc received even more critical acclaim as the band’s previous release, Road Worn and Ragged (2013), both produced by Jensen. This led to two consecutive Blues Blast Music Award nominations in the Sean Costello Rising Star category (2014/2015).

    The band continues to tour the US, Canada and many European countries relentlessly, as the inferno shows no signs of burning out. Whenever there is a break in the schedule, Jensen switches roles, acting as the producer with other artists including Mick Kolassa, John Parker and co-producing Santini’s This Time Another Year, nominated for a Blues Music Award in the Contemporary Blues Album category (2014). *Biography written by Mark Thompson

    Joe “Survival” Caruoso with Bootsy Taylor
    Friday May 17, 2019

    The Joe “Survival” Caruso Band with Bootsy Taylor bring their Sunshine Blues to the BBC following a sneak preview at the Guitar Shorty show on Sunday.

    Joe Caruso - guitar/vocals:
    Bootsy Taylor - vocals:
    Wayne A. Pollock - bass - :
    Kenneth Dillard Sr - drums.:

    Joe is a survivor from tours in Vietnam to the devastation of Katrina that wiped out Joe’s house and belongings in New Orleans. Currently living in Debary, FL, his music is infused with the spicy rhythms and blues from his New Orleans roots as a teenager in the Big Easy with his first band, Survival. He opened for Etta James, Hank Ballard Ernie K-Doe, and Aaron Neville that led to a career of world-wide touring with a variety of musical genres.

    Make no mistake, though, Joe is a bluesman through and through from his slinky guitar playing and soulful tenor vocals to straight ahead 12 bar blues and funky road house rhythms. Joe is backed by his 4 piece band. featuring the unmistakable soulful vocals and stage presence of Bootsy Taylor Blues to the bone–a perfect fit for the ol’ juke.
    A BBC crowd favorite. Good stuff!

  • JOE CARUSO & BOOTSY TAYLOR - Something Strange & I Got The Voodoo - Earls Hideaway 06-30-2019

    15:33

    JOE CARUSO & BOOTSY TAYLOR - Something Strange and I Got The Voodoo - at Earl's Hideaway, Sebastian, FL 06-30-2019




    Joe Caruso grew up in a New Orleans musical family. The legendary Club Desire, just across the street from Joe’s house, was where he first learned the sounds of Blues and Rhythm and Blues. In the Summer of ’69 Joe received his draft notice and spent a year in the tropical paradise of Viet Nam. Later, Joe moved to Oakland in 1984 and had many successful years playing there until he moved back home to New Orleans in 1992.

    In September of 2005, Joe left New Orleans with his elderly mother on a Friday to play a gig with Al Little Fats Jackson at the Grand Casino in Kinder, Louisiana, located in the northwest part of the state. While there, Joe received a telephone call from a friend in New Orleans warning him not to come back home because a storm was approaching. Joe didn't know then that this storm would become the very powerful Hurricane Katrina and that everything he owned would be lost except for his love of his family and the Blues.

    Joe moved his Mom to his sister’s house in Deltona, Florida, to keep his family together and safe. Always a “Survivor,” Joe has created this collection of his songs for your enjoyment and wishes to dedicate it in memory of his Mother, Verdadelle Adams, born in 1928, who passed away during the making of this recording.
