The Sugar Thieves have a sultry blues roots foundation and powerhouse delta sound that will take you back in time. They also come equipped with a fresh new style, high-energy showmanship, and an original song list that brings music enthusiasts of any age, to their feet to shake that meat! The Sugar Thieves won the Phoenix Blues Society's Arizona State Blues Competition this year, for the third time. In 2008 and 2009, The Sugar Thieves won and went on to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (Feb. 2009/Jan. 2010) where they were voted one of the top ten unsigned blues bands in the world in 09, and won the “People’s Choice” award at the Old Daisy Theater in 2010. This Jan. 2013, The Sugar Thieves will be competing in Memphis once again, and are ready to take it all home. www.sugarthieves.com


YOU’LL KNOW EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MISSY ANDERSEN shortly after she hits the stage in her “cute shoes.” Yes, she really has a voice -- powerful, passionate and satiny at the same time -- and she’s fun, with a coy, sexy-girl-next-door way about her, and a sly sense of humor. Audiences love Missy, because she brings personality and passion to her performances ... and that voice.


Michele Lundeen, dubbed "The Queen of Steam", returns for her 5th appearance in San Felipe. Michele  is universally recognized as gifted interpreter of blues oriented songs.  And her high energy performances tell the story of songs in a deeply emotional way, hitting listeners right in the gut.  Stirring vocals and her hot stage presence visibly moves audiences everywhere.  Humor, empathy, and that VOICE!  Michele sings from the heart with a soul-revealing intensity rarely matched today, and evokes the very best comparisons with Joplin, Midler, and Raitt. 


Love of the blues. Love of Stevie Ray Vaughan. The love of re-creating a feeling that so many enjoyed -- and so many missed. These are the things that drove the creation of Crossfire, a Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute band that strives to capture the essence of a Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble concert with authenticity, respect, and yes, love. www.alaniglesias-and-crossfire.com.


Chet & the Committee front man Chet Cannon is a self-described “terminal blues fan” who once attended 26 blues concerts in 29 days. “We pour our heart into every performance. Our main objective is to make sure it’s a good time.” The band’s Don’t Get Me Started! CD was SDMA-nominated in 2006 for Best Blues Album. Source: San Diego Reader online.


San Diego’s favorite Zydeco band, with a sound straight out of Louisiana’s dance clubs, bayou festivals and backyard crawfish boils, the BAYOU BROTHERS will rock you right on into “Fat Tuesday” with their extensive experience and endless enthusiasm to deliver a rousing, rollicking, heart thumpin’, foot stompin’ musical gumbo y’all won’t soon forget!

Artist - Barbara Peacock

Barbara Peacock
Art, of all types, is my passion. It has always amazed me that so many little nothings can become one beautiful something.....be it grains of sand or strokes from a brush!
As I have grown into the realm of art.... it has all become limitless. The best work I have ever done, in any medium, I’ve taken on without a clue as to just how capable I actually am of completing it “to my own satisfaction”. But I have never been a quitter and I try to never doubt my own ability. I also will never make "the second one"- no series- each one leads to the next. I find that “Once I master the art form in my heart of hearts.....it is time to move on to the next challenge, the higher mountain, and see where it will lead me.” Does a true ‘artist’ only work in one medium....or in many?
