If you want to hear what a sticky hot evening in the heat of a Florida summer sounds like – listen to JJ Grey & Mofro.  Take the song, “Fireflies” – when JJ poses the question “where did all the fireflies go?” you can almost feel the thick southern air and on “Lochloosa,” JJ waxes poetic about the Florida swampland he calls home.   

JJ Grey’s music reflects his deep love of the slow-paced patch of dirt where he grew up and still lives on a chicken farm.  He brings that southern blues out of the swamps and mixes it with some funky soul to give his music a blues/rock edge that stands out from the crowd.       

JJ Grey’s legendary live performances are a must-see and his tour almost never reaches the California coast, so don’t miss this opportunity to experience JJ Grey & Mofro at the 20th Annual Doheny Blues Festival on Sunday, May 21st.  www.dohenybluesfestival.com/tickets

Mavis Staples

From Mississippi to Chicago

From Gospel to the Blues

From Curtis Mayfield to Wilco

Mavis Staples – is a legendary blues and soul singer who has done everything from Freedom March with Martin Luther King Jr., hang out with (and almost marry) Bob Dylan, perform with The Band and record with Prince.

Born to a blues guitarist from Mississippi, Roebuck “Pops” Staples, Mavis first sang with her musical family in church in Chicago.  According to Mavis, Pops taught his children to sing like “old folk” which gave the young Mavis her old-soul sound that belied her age.  Initially recording gospel and folk music, once they landed at Memphis-based Stax Records in 1968 and were backed by members of Booker T. and the MGs, the Staples Singers came into their own as soul legends with hits like “I’ll Take You There” and “Let’s Do It Again.”

The Doheny Blues Festival is proud to present this Grammy Award-winning blues legend during our 20th Anniversary celebration on May 21st at Doheny Beach in Dana Point.  Don’t miss your chance to see Mavis in person, get your tickets at: www.dohenybluesfestival.com/tickets

DANA POINT, CA – Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Blues on the Beach in Southern California, the DOHENY BLUES FESTIVAL announces its final lineup for this year’s event, held in Dana Point Harbor on May 20 & 21, 2017. Headlining this year’s anniversary celebration is the legendary JOE WALSH, MELISSA ETHERIDGE’s MEmphis Rock & Soul, JASON BONHAM’s Led Zeppelin Experience, roots rocker CHRIS ISAAK, and soul legend MAVIS STAPLES.

For 20 years, the Doheny Blues Festival has created a festival environment like none other. The cornerstone of the event is three alternating stages of blues, rock and soul music, with legendary artists alongside rising stars, all held at the beautiful beachfront venue of Doheny State Beach. This year’s lineup may be the strongest in the event’s history, led by legendary Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh and platinum-selling artist Melissa Etheridge.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame guitarist JOE WALSH is best known for his contributions to legendary sound of The Eagles, as well as his early work with the James Gang, and his guitar work on “Hotel California” has been named the #8 Greatest Guitar Solo by Guitar World Magazine.  Also headlining the festival is Academy Award and GRAMMY-winning artist MELISSA ETHERIDGE. One of rock music’s great female icons, Etheridge will take the Doheny stage with a revamped horn-driven band to perform songs from her latest album “MEmphis Rock & Soul,” a soul-ute to Stax Records.

Joining Joe Walsh and Melissa Etheridge is JASON BONHAM, son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, as he continues to carry on his father’s legacy in a tribute to one of the biggest rock bands of all time. Plus, hit-making crooner and acclaimed roots rocker CHRIS ISAAK will make his first appearance at Doheny Blues, along with Blues Hall of Famer and recent Kennedy Center Honoree MAVIS STAPLES.

“Year 20 is a proud milestone for any festival, so we want to celebrate the history of American Blues & rock music with a star-studded lineup,” says Rich Sherman, festival producer and president of Omega Events. “Given the recent passing of Chuck Berry and James Cotton, we feel an honor to feature music legends, while continuing to introduce our fans to exciting new artists.  This year’s lineup may be our strongest in Doheny’s history.”
