JD & BLUESBOX DELUX - AT STEVE & COOKIES IN MARGATE
An Acoustic and Electric, Original and Classic Blues, Roots, Soul and Rock Band, features two seasoned performers, lead singer/songwriter/guitarist, Joe “JD”, DiBartolo and his longtime bass player/back-up singer, Frank Barbera, complemented by the youthful “Wonder Twins” (riveting guitarist, Frank Kozak, and savvy drummer/percussionist, Ryan Huff). Kozak, producer of BLUESBOX DELUX’S debut CD, “Boxing Day” and JD’s solo original CD, “Before the Night is Through”, adds an edge to BLUESBOX that he acquired while performing with original bands before he discovered his spiritual connection to the Blues. Together, “JD” and Kozak create a rich tapestry of Blues and original music that reverberates with their own individual sounds. From intense dueling guitars, to hauntingly harmonious sweet riffs the two disparate guitarists artistically combine their strong improvisational skills that’s at the core of the band’s inspired eclectic mix of interpretations of Classic R&B, Soul, Blues and Rock. Deeply rooted in South Jersey history, the band’s diverse repertoire is illuminated by JD’s brilliant vocal and guitar styles that draw upon his major musical influences: Otis Redding, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan.

MATT AVERY - AT JJ'S BREAKFAST SPOT IN MARGATE
He was voted Key West's #1 Entertainer of the Year, appeared on the Tonight Show and on American Bandstand with Dick Clark. He even won Star Search! It’s Matt Avery, a.k.a. The Human Jukebox with a mental library of over 4,000 songs. Not only is his songlist vast but, his ability to sound like the original artist is uncanny. Matt's talents are the result of over 25 years of professional entertaining and selling many records (yes, records!), with his early 80's glam-band Scarlet. He also scored a record deal with his L.A. band, The Touch. In 1990 Matt put together his solo acoustic act and took it on the road. He became the #1 draw at Ohio's Put-In-Bay, one of Playboy magazine's top 10 pickup spots in the world. His promo slogan, "Matt Avery, where are you?....Averywhere" was well known. "All one must do is walk down Duval Street at night in Key West to witness Matt Avery's huge influence on the music scene there. They're all doing a variation of his show while some are carbon copies! Alas, Avery's heart and attitude are two things that can't be imitated or copied and that's where the others glaringly fail” - Miami Music Review. Contact: MattAvery.com
