1st Annual Florida Blues Film Festival - CinemaDave

Jan. 15th, 2012 08:40 pm 1st Annual Florida Blues Film Festival

Grief is a confusing emotion, one reacts differently under each situation. Last December I lost my Uncle Paul and my buddy (Scary) Gerry Carter within 3 days of each other. The only emotional release valve that I found was Matt "Guitar" Murphy's Blues performance at Club Satchmo a few nights later. A member of the original **Blues Brothers Band** who performed with Howlin' Wolf and Etta James, Murphy's back up band was the Albert Castiglia, our South Florida blues homie.

This Martin Luther King weekend, Albert Castiglia will be performing at the **Florida Blues Film Festival** at Club Satchmo. (http://www.bluesfilmfest.com). Presented by BlueAtHeart Productions, this Blues Film Festival features 3 documentaries that have been honored in the past year, **Full Moon Lightnin'** ** Hard Times** and **M is for Mississippi. While the Blues acknowledges pain and suffering in the world, the Blues often the first stop on the road to redemption.
