After touring with Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, Melody Trucks immersed herself in the increasingly rich and diverse music scene in Jacksonville, Florida. The Melody Trucks Band came together in early 2017 as she encountered each member within this extended musical family. Their individual styles and influences run the entire span of every music genre: rock, blues, jazz, funk, classical, country, thrash metal, and even world music. This has culminated in fresh and unique interpretations of iconic songs from the genre of Melody’s extended family.
Collectively, the members of the group have shared the stage with The Allman Brothers, Derek Trucks, Willie Nelson, Vaylor Trucks, Lee Boys, Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, Devon Allman, Duane Trucks, Bonnie Bramlett, Roosevelt Collier, John Popper, Bruce Katz, Ben Sparaco, JJ Grey and Mofro, and countless others.
JUke is a four-piece, “post-blues,” hybrid with a high motor and bottomless soul.
Spearheaded by frontman/harmonica-whiz/singer, Eric Garcia, JUke’s content touches on non-traditional subject matter while simultaneously keeping their crowd moving with a smile on their faces. The addition of Sonny East on guitar, Korian Hannah on the drums, and Marcel Salas now have the band firing on all cylinders. JUke’s high-energy live performances and imaginative lyrical depth have thrilled music fans at festivals such as Wanee, Hulaween, AURA, Magnolia Fest, and Orange Blossom Jamboree. Now, with that powerful new lineup behind Eric Garcia, JUke prepares to take their stories and shows to the people!
