Backtrack Blues Band

CD Release Party

$5 Cover

The members of the Backtrack Blues Band have extensive experience in the blues music world which includes both performing at and producing blues music shows. The founder of the band, Sonny Charles, is the director of the Tampa Bay Blues Festival in St. Petersburg, Florida, which is one of the largest blues music events in the country. The Tampa Bay Blues Festival was the 2011 recipient of the prestigious “Keeping the Blues Alive” award (KBA) given by the Blues Foundation in Memphis.

The band members consist of Sonny Charles on lead vocals and amplified and acoustic harmonicas. Kid Royal plays lead guitar and provides vocals. Little Johnny Walter also provides rhythm guitar and vocals. Joe Bencomo, a gifted jazz and blues percussionist, is the band’s drummer. Stick Davis performs on bass.

The band was co-founded by Sonny Charles and Little Johnny Walter in St. Petersburg, Florida, in 1980. The band takes its name from the Little Walter instrumental, “Backtrack”‘; and the band is heavily influenced by the Chicago blues sounds of the 1950s. The members of the band are serious students of blues music history and give special acknowledgement to the great African American performers who transformed the course of modern popular music.
