Hailing from Miami, JUke is a new breed of blues-band fronted by a modern day bluesman. It is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/harmonica whiz, Eric Garcia, who was dissatisfied with most dated, non-threatening traditional blues.

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 the endless grooves from bassist, Taylor Byrd, have completed the unique hybrid that has become JUke.

Dark, hypnotic, and defiantly unpredictable, the group is not to be missed.
