A Gulf Coast Juneteenth
Featuring Bobby Rush
@Miller Outdoor Theatre
Saturday 6/19/2021 8:30 PM
Miller Outdoor Theatre this weekend will be bringing us their annual Juneteenth blues and creole festival featuring Grammy award-winning blues legend Bobby Rush!
This story telling bluesman boasts gritty, sensuous vocals and impressive harmonica chops that wow audiences wherever he goes! After decades of tearing up the chitlin’ circuit on a nightly basis with his sweaty, no-holds-barred funkfests, Bobby has thoroughly broken through to the mainstream. He won a long-overdue 2017 Grammy for his spectacular album Porcupine Meat and consistently tours the globe as a headliner.
This revered legend, well past 80 years of age, is bigger and badder and bolder than ever. “I’m a bluesman who’s sitting on the top of my game, proud of what I do and proud of who I am and thankful for people accepting me for what I am and who I am,” says the charismatic Rush. “I’m happy about what I’m doing and still enthused about what I’m doing. This show promises something for everyone.
Rush wails on pungent harmonica throughout the set, his vocals as sly and sensuous as ever while elastic grooves simmer and surge behind him. Rush has been a master storyteller for decades. His work is influenced by a slew of blues greats, including Louis Jordan, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin’ Wolf, Bobby Bland, BB. King, and Junior Parker to name a few. “I guess you can find about 20 guys that I like, and when you hear my music, you can hear a little of this, a little of that, a little up, a little down. You put ’em all in a bowl and stir ’em up, you get a Bobby Rush. That’s called a Bobby Rush blues soup,” Rush said.

Flowery Branch, Georgia native Andrew Jannakos grew up in a small-town neighborhood where barbecue parties and backyard soccer games were everyday events. Today, that sense of community translates to his nearly one million followers across Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok. Since Jannakos first teased his breakout single, “Gone Too Soon,” in a viral clip now viewed over ten million times, that community is only getting stronger.
“It’s been so amazing seeing it all happen,” Jannakos says of his social and streaming success. “Especially when I first posted, being an independent artist at the time. One moment no one knows who you are, and then something goes viral. Then the numbers keep going up, and you realize it’s something more.”
Many of Jannakos’ initial followers knew him for his illustrious run on season 16 of NBC’s The Voice, but it wasn’t until a year later, in July 2020, that his then-girlfriend (now wife) posted a video of him cooking dinner while singing along to “Gone Too Soon” to his TikTok and took his social stardom to new heights.
“My grandfather played in a bluegrass band for years and years in Georgia,” he says. “So I was raised on country: Waylon, Hank, Whitley, Brooks & Dunn. My earliest memories of singing were in the car going to elementary school, when my mom and I would just belt Shania Twain the whole way there.”

It has been reported tbe Austin native got his name in an unusual way. His music combines blues, folk, country, and rock and roll. Rose-Garcia (aka Shakey Graves) received his stage name at Old Settler's Music Festival back in 2007 after a stranger, apparently high on LSD, rambled "spooky wagons". Then he and his friends jokingly gave each other Native American guide names over a campfire. After an inspired night of playing music, he decided to keep the name.
Shakey Graves became known for his one-man band set up and most of his 2011 self-released debut album "Roll the Bones" features him playing solo. This set up originated after he grew tired of having to borrow kick drums and high hats in order to perform. His solution consisted of a modified suitcase that functions as both a kick drum and a tambourine stand built by a close friend.
