Joe "Survival" Caruso
Peter Karp

The Bradfordville Blues Club

-- by Gary Anton

Cruisin' along with two shows this weekend. Raw blues from Joe Caruso and gritty roots and blues form Peter Karp.

Joe "Survival" Caruoso - Friday June 23rd at 9:00 PM.
The Joe "Survival" Caruso Band returns to the BBC Friday, June 23 at 9:00 pm. 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 from his 4 piece band. Blues to the bone--a perfect fit for the ol' juke. Good stuff!

Peter Karp - Saturday, June 24th at 9:00 PM
On Saturday, June 24 Peter Karp & The Peter Karp Band fire up the corner stage at 9 pm. Peter Karp is the real deal--a creative and talented songwriter/storyteller and multi-instrumentalist who alternates between rockin' guitar, searin slide guitar, blues harp and barrel house piano deftly mixing blues, roots, Americana and alt-country. Quite the entertainer, too.

“An underground genius…like Jackson Browne and John Prine, with a healthy dose of blues, too. Karp’s a soulful storyteller. The man can write.” Blues Revue

“Karp is his own man, an artist who blends roots music styles into something that transcends blues, country, R&B and swamp. John Prine’s wordplay, Joe Ely’s rocking instincts, Billy Joe Shaver’s fatalistic outlook.” J. Poet []

"Peter Karp blends blues, folk and rock, drawing from the roots of American music...His influences come from folk, blues and a little country--Dylan, Phil Ochs, John Prine, Bill Monroe, Freddie King, Jimi Hendrix... ....Like Hendrix, Dylan, Vaughn and Waters before him, he veers from barriers and twists the sounds, taking it to places he loves." Mary Jasch, The Princeton Packet

Peter opens the doors to a raucous, energetic night of blues and blues rock. He is backed by a hot and tight rhythm section providing rollicking, smokin', fast paced, hip shakin', roots and blues. Really good stuff. Highly recommended.
