SAN FELIPE - Blues and Arts Musician Spotlight

Blues and Arts Musician Spotlight ~ Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies!

San Felipe International Blues & Arts Fiesta 2011 welcomes the return of Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies to our magical venue on the Sea of Cortez in San Felipe. On Saturday March 26, 2011, our friends from Seattle bring their Texas/Chicago style band to deliver high energy Blues like nobody else. Becki Sue & the Daddies guarantee a GREAT stage show. Count on blazing guitar talent, smokin' sax and blues harp riffs, and powerful & sexy Becki Sue vocals who sizzles along with two male vocalists & upright bass. Our friends from Washington know how to draw & keep a crowd by firing up high octane blues fuel!

Hailing from the South Puget Sound region of Washington state, Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies formed in 2003 by the band's guitarist Tom "T-Boy Neal" Boyle. Since then the band has risen to elite status among blues bands in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. A new CD, "Big Rockin' Boogie" released on Underworld Records on June 15, 2010, shows off the group's 'under the radar' songwriting skills as well as significant musical growth. The Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies style is steeped in the blues vein and laced with plenty of startling originality.

Music awards range from "Best Blues Band" (Washington Blues Society in 2006 and 2007) to "Best Regional Band" (Oregon's Cascade Blues Association in 2008) to "#1 Best Band in Western Washington". Becki Sue & her Big Rockin' Daddies! is one tight outfit. Plus the gang fits right in here in San Felipe. Last year's performance at the Blues & Arts Fiesta brought down the house, and while the band arrived as pros on the road, they left for the north after a stunning turn at the show as our real friends. This band gets the groove and will brings it on while performing at this year's premier fund-raising event in Baja California: Blues & Arts Fiesta 2011.
