Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King: Blues On The Coast 2009
Arena Theater's Blues On The Coast proudly presents Smokin' Joe Kubek & Bnois King. There's no question why they gave Joe Kubek the nickname "Smokin'." He's one of the hottest electric guitar players on the blues scene today. Kubek has the technique and the chops to burn up any stage and has been doing so for the past 30 years. A guitar prodigy at the age of 14 the Texas guitar slinger frequented the Dallas bar scene during the 1970's and early 80's playing with Stevie Ray Vaughan and people like the three Kings, B.B., Albert and Freddie. Kubek didn't hit his stride, however, until he teamed up with jazz guitarist and singer Bnois King of Monroe, Louisiana, in 1989. Kubek found that King's softer, jazz based guitar and vocals perfectly complimented his own headier rock-inspired guitar work. The combination just clicked, resulting in a seamless mesh of styles.
Joe and Bnois are a study in opposites. Kubek explodes on stage with blazing blues/rock style born from the guitar traditions of Texas. King finesses fat chords with a hollow body Gibson and belts out blues with his whisper to growl voice, his sound rooted in the jazz tradition of Louisiana. Together, they form a musically intuitive partnership. Their band has been touring nearly steadily for the past 11 years building a loyal following while earning a reputation as one of the baddest-ass blues bands in the land.
