Here's a direct message from Dominic Benecasa about Daytona Blues Festival
I started the Daytona Blues Festival as a non-profit organization several months ago to bring great national acts to the Daytona Beach, Florida area into a 3 day weekend festival setting. We are working real hard to make this a great weekend and give everyone who attends a feeling of money well spent for a great time.

We have 14+ acts set for the weekend with the first one starting about 6:00 p.m. on Friday night, that would be acoustic blues great Ben Prestage, followed by Tampa's own Damon Fowler, then Blues music award winner for best song of the year Mike Zito (Pearl River) and finally that Blues Guitar Legend that you remember from the movie The Blues Brothers, Matt"Guitar" Murphy backed the unique and very talented South Florida Band, The Nouveaux Honkies.

Saturday will be a long day for all you blues aficionado's, we are starting at High Noon with the swing/blues sax playing 6th Street Rhythm and Blues Review, followed by the Nouveaux Honkies doing what they do best. Next coming by way of France via Chicago/ South Florida Harmonica extraordinare Nico Wayne Toussaint his band is followed by Daytona's own Homeboy Victor Wainwright and the Wild Roots who have become the boogie piano band from Beale Street. Finally our "double Headliners" Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King, the Texas Bluesmen who will get you rockin' with there new album that's been the most highly downloaded album off of the "net".

And finally that special Lady who really sings the blues all the way from California, cancer survivor Candye Kane, who we absolutely love, her voice will get in your head and just stay there.

We have a VIP after party on Saturday night for VIP ticket holders with a very special performance planned. Sunday begins at noon with Albert Castilgia, replacing Samuel James on the lineup. Followed by Sean Carney's band out of Ohio, Sean started Blues For A Cure. Then little miss Boogaloo from Mississippi, Pinetop Perkins award recipient, Eden Brent, followed by South Florida's own J.P. Soars and the Red Hots. And finally the harp player of harp players all the way from California, Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers.
