Joey Gilmore came to South Florida in the ’60s and has been there ever since. Gilmore found his niche playing behind all the great soul, blues and R&B stars that passed through town, as well as leading his own successful bands and recording along the way.
Joey is a true Blues and R & B master who incorporates new and varied styles in his music performing original compositions mixed with traditional standards in his high energy live show. His tenor/baritone vocals belt out tunes with a loss abandon reminiscent of Blues Legends from the 1940’s and 1950’s.
This Blues man’s major influences are apparent without sacrificing his unique style. Artists Joey has shared the stage with include; James Brown, Etta James, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, Johnny Taylor and numerous others.
In January 2006 Joey traveled to Memphis to compete in The International BLUES Challenge. This is the most distinguished and internationally coveted award in all of blues. The Joey Gilmore Band outscored all bands worldwide while showcasing his amazing talent at a blues industry event as the best unsigned band on the planet.
Joey is proud to represent the Blues Foundation as the winner at every sponsored event, being an ambassador of the Blues for the Foundation and Blues Community. In 2008 Joey was awarded the Blewzzy award for best song, All Over You.
