The Southern Arizona Blues Heritage Foundation and The Boondocks Lounge 19th Anniversary Celebration are pleased to present Blind Pig recording artists, Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King in a KXCI Presents concert. Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King have been playing red hot Texas blues together for 25 years. Their new CD “Fat Man’s Shine Parlor” is their 15th critically acclaimed recording. The new CD was just released on February 3rd. Smokin’ Joe Kubek grew up around the Dallas blues scene, playing in Freddy King’s band until King’s death in 1976. He spent time with R&B star Al “TNT” Braggs and hung out with Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King and more. He didn’t really hit his stride until he teamed up with jazz guitarist and singer Bnois King. Kubek invited King to sit in one night, and discovered King’s softer, jazz-based guitar and soulful vocals perfectly complemented Kubek’s more rock inspired playing. They are a study in opposites. From Kubek’s hard Texas blues, to King’s jazz and R&B, they are certainly one of the best guitar duos on the scene today. Smokin’ Joe Kubek and Bnois King are road warriors. They tour almost constantly, from Texas to Tucson, across the USA, and around the world. Their live shows are the stuff of legend. Raw and relentless Texas blues rock, tempered with deep blues and soul, delivered with passion and style keep blues fans coming back for more. This show will celebrate the release of the new CD, as well as the return of this fine band to Tucson. http://www.smokinjoekubek.com/
