Hailing from Miami, JUke is a new breed of Post-blues and the brainchild of singer/songwriter/harmonica whiz, Eric Garcia, who was dissatisfied with most dated, non-threatening traditional blues. Eric felt the need to bring the angst and power back into the type of music that seemed to lose some of it’s relevance and impact. Teaming up with guitar phenom and singer, Evan Lamb, was the catapult that made JUke go and realize Eric’s vision.
The addition of powerhouse drummer, Brian Lange, and now the the great Max Farber on keys/bass, have completed the unique hybrid that has become JUke.
JUke’s songwriting is one of the things that separate them from the pack. The subject matter and lyrical content has long been hailed by their fans and only adds to their legend.
Couple that with their performance and musicianship, and you have a band you can learn to love.
JUke’ʹs first album, ” Lungbutter‑the Blues Basement Tapes”, is available on iTunes.
The recording of their sophomore album, ” Down Low Cool”, is out now as well. Their new release, “The Junglehouse Sessions” is available for free download on their website, www.jukepostblues.com!
JUke’s in-your-face live shows and stories of love, loss and pain make them the band to see!!!
