Nader Issa is a classically triained bassist/vocalist with fluency in a variety of styles and techniques. His up-tempo pizzicato boogie riffs and heartwarming bow work showcase the versatile voice of the upright bass. His love and formal knowledge of Jazz, Classical, and contemporary music is apparent every night.

"The Reality" is a funkadelic foursome hailing from the sunny shores of Tampa, Florida, which has hit the bay area with a new sound that has the masses in a daze, like a hot summer’s day. With music as sweet and juicy as the first bite of one of the bands signature pineapples, pin your ears back and listen to their soul drenched music and see why fans are just begging for another sip!  They are known for their unique blend of funk, jazz, reggae and rock, the collective foursome has brought a fresh and exciting presence to the music scene, always daring to push the limits and break new boundaries. Fans compare us to the classics such as Pink Floyd, and Jimi Hendrix, mixed with modern sounds such as Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and John Mayer. 
Band Members
Dan Jones - Guitars & Vocals & Trombone
Caleb Bone - Bass & Vocals
Brian Jones - Drums & Vocals
Kyle Sareyani - Keys & Flute
Genre:  Funk/Jazz/Reggae/Rock

"Future Vintage" is bringing a whole new sound to the Southeastern US. Their name is synonymous with their sonic vision – presenting original music that bridges the gap between all great Funk music past, present and future. The music is rooted in the classic Funk of the 70’s and early 80’s with further influence from the Hip Hop and Neo-Soul of the 90’s and 2000’s and finally with an ear to what’s happening in Electronic Dance Music today.
Band members:
Future Vintage is led by Keyboardist/Composer Matt Giancola and features Trevor McDannel on Bass and Eric Layana on Acoustic and Electric Drums. Together they share years of combined experience cutting their teeth in various Funk outfits throughout the US.

It is with great pleasure that we are celebrating our 40th year, Dallas created something special back on July 7, 1977, and it is still thriving after all these years. The Patch has changed a great deal over the years, and we will be remembering the times we all had, and the people that made it all happen. There will of course be some great music, but we are also going to be setting up an area in the front for all the memories, there will be pictures, some videos, and hopefully some of the history and stories will be told. 
The music starts at 7:00pm and goes till 11:00pm on the main stage, but of course there will be after jams. There will also be a pot luck dinner so please bring a dish to share. The potluck will start about 8 PM or so.
 The doors will close at 2:00am.
Featured bands include:
Dylan Cowles: a Blueberry patch original artist. Dylan currently lives in Tampa and is a singer songwriter with plenty of original songs. He was also the front man for several other ventures including: Blue Gravy, Dylan Cowles and the Krowkness, and Kosmic Egg. Dylan also wrote a couple of versions of the Blueberry Patch song for Dallas, and we will all be singing the song at the end of his set. He also is a regular on the Florida Folk show and you can catch him at other venues around the bay area. We are happy to have him celebrate with us!

The Rosewoods will be finishing out the night!
Elliot Dickinson, John Macdonald, Kristina White, and Greg Baker have emerged from various influences and backgrounds to bring the music of The Rosewoods to life. Many aspiring musicians are touched by the spirit of rock ’n’ roll, but few create an original sound with as much heart as The Rosewoods. As first impressions from the Tampa Bay area have shown, this young group is sure to become a thriving act in the local music scene. In the winter of 2010 the group began writing and rehearsing its first batch of original songs and followed up the work with production of a home recording titled, Why Do You Do It. By late October of 2011 the band was performing locally and making up for lost time as well. After their first two shows alone, The Rosewoods, were offered in-studio air time at the local FM radio station 88.5 WMNF and managed to be booked through to January of the following year. The Rosewoods are continuously writing and arranging material that will shape the sound of music for the next generation. The band has influences in rock, soul, and blues and puts on a great show.

There will be limited vending for this event and will be set up on the Labyrinth side of the property, spaces are limited, and there will be a $25.00 vending fee. So if you are interested contact the BBP page for sign-up.

Our featured artist for the evening is singer/songwriter Daniel Stevens.   

Dan began his musical career in the 60's with his first band, The Rats. He grew up in Massachusetts, where, due to issues with curfews, bedtimes and a lack of transportation, he put his career on hold until the early 70’s, after high school. After a year, he left Beloit College (Wisconsin) and traveled to Guam, where he joined Bamboo, a horn band which played island nightclubs and concerts. 

Over the years, he's been one of the founding members of a number of rock n' roll/blues bands: Apathy, Cottonmouth, Windfall Prophet, Groove Moon and others. He's played across the New England states, in Texas and Colorado (Boulder,Telluride, and Colorado Springs), and, of course, all over Florida.

His cds have all been produced by Lis and Lon Williamson, of Gatorbone Records and Studio, who also work with bands like Flagship Romance, Chelsea Saddler, Grant Peeples and many others. Pete Winters, of Winterstone in Tallahassee, mastered all four cds.

Dan is almost retired from "the road," though he's still happy to play here and there. Just ask.

You can check out some of his music:

Troy Youngblood & the SoulFish
Genre: Blues, Funk, Soul, Roots

“If I was knocked out by TEB’s voice, I was totally unprepared for what happened next. Troy Youngblood and the SoulFish hit the stage, and Youngblood’s amazing voice filled the entire fest. There simply aren’t many male singers of his caliber in these here parts. Youngblood also played a mean guitar, fronting bass, drums, keyboard, and trumpet! “Just Another Day in My Life” had me thinking of my all-time favorite singer, Tim Buckley, among others. “Long Tall Ride” was an enjoyable romp, and during “Let Me Go” I was hearing Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Please do not misunderstand me: Youngblood is all his own man; I was just finding comparisons with my favorite music. The band had a ball performing “The Devil Smells Like Bourbon.” I’m hoping to see this band again soon, maybe this weekend!”

Not only is he a phemonimal musician, he also possesses an amazing ability to captivate his listeners by radiating genuine love and kindness from the stage.  An evening with El Dub at the Blueberry Patch is not just a concert...it's an experience.   

Lee "El Dub" Walsh: Lyric Extraordinaire, Musician, Composer, Multi-Instrumentalist, and Vocalist, with a love of music to no end and an even bigger passion to share it!

El Dub is what you call a "looper" or "One man Band". He plays all instruments live including, beat boxing, guitar, bass, keys and harmonizing vocals and loops them into layers that end up sounding like a full band with just one guy. El Dub uses the RC50 Loop Station as well as a Godin Synth Guitar, and Roland GR55 guitar synth pedal for sounds like horn sections, flutes, organ, piano, and wah clavi, which help him create the staple sounds of a true funk band. You may recognize this type of performance from other "looping artist" like Zach Deputy, and Keller Williams.

Genre: Funk. Reggae, Blues, Hip Hop

Brand New CD "Feelin' Alive" Available NOW at www.eldubmusic.com

Make sure to make a stop near the front of the stage to show us your artistic skills.

When the amplified music ends at 11pm, head over to Ringside Cafe, downtown St. Pete, for the OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY with The Juanjamon Band and NoNeed!

Dalton Trumbo was an award-winning author and screenwriter who was blacklisted from the film industry from 1947 until the early '60s due to his Communist ties. He is credited with two Academy Awards for work he did clandestinely during this time. 

"The blacklist was a time of evil, no one on either side who survived it came through untouched by evil. Looking back on this time it will do no good to search for villains or heroes or saints or devils because there were none; there were only victims"

NoNeed is a four-piece Alternative-Reggae band thriving in Tampa Bay, Florida, but quickly stretching its influence across the state and Southeast United States. The band’s sound is rooted in a rock-alternative foundation with reggae and fusion undertones. The band has two releases under their belt: All That We Are (2013) and their brand new EP titled The Beginning available worldwide on July 23rd 2016. The band considers themselves road warriors as they have toured extensively throughout the entire state of Florida since 2013. They began to tour nationally since the Summer of 2015 stretching through the east coast and up the Midwest with hopes of putting in many more miles for years to come. NoNeed brings an uplifting and energetic presence to the stage; Products of USF’s Jazz School, the band shows off their musical merit with instrumental breakdowns, three part harmonies and audience interactions sure to keep the crowd entertained.

Before jumping into a task, be sure to speak with someone in charge to determine which project needs your assistance. Lunch will be provided to those who have already put in an hour or more of work.  So be sure to arrive early if you want to eat!

We open the gate at 11:11am and work until our planned projects are finished. Don't forget to ask for a "volunteer pass" before you leave!"

Volunteer

The Blueberry Patch opens each and every Saturday to volunteers who are ready and willing to lend a hand. Volunteers are welcome to come help us clean the property, decorate and create recycled art. We open the gate at 11:11am and work until our planned projects are finished. Lunch is provided to those who are working. This is a great opportunity to meet the board, meet new friends and be able to see what goes on “behind the scenes”. Remember to ask for a Volunteer Pass before you leave!

Please contact us at volunteer@blueberrypatch.org if you are interested, or just show up on Saturday at 11:11am!

Peace, Love & Blueberries!
