The Fountain Blues Festival is back! Come listen to blues artist J.C. Smith, get a sneak preview of the artist lineup from FBF Artistic Director Ted Gehrke, and get the chance to win a pair of tickets to the event.
J.C. Smith began his performing career as drummer for the Back to Back Blues Band. In 2000, he emerged from behind his drums, armed with a Gibson 335, and attacked the Blues as if masters like T-Bone Walker, Albert King, and Johnnie Guitar Watson were guiding him. Smith has toured throughout the United States, Eastern Europe, Mexico, and South America to sellout crowds and feels that his goal in life is “to keep the Blues alive and take the message to the people.” The J.C. Smith Band’s current release, Defining Cool, entered the Living Blues Radio Charts at #16 and spent 20 weeks on the Roots Music Report. He recently shared the stage with Chris Cain and Maxx Cabello Jr. at our San Jose Jazz Winter Fest this past March.
Mention San Jose Jazz to your bartender or server, and a portion of your purchase will go to support our education programs. Thank you!
