Join us on FRIDAY, July 7 at 4:30pm, as the Gillespie Field Cafe comes alive with sounds of Live Music, Good Food, Great People, Hot Rod Cars and WWII and Antique Airplanes!
Everything starts early at 4:30pm with Antique Airplanes brought in by Commemorative Air Force - Air Group One, San Diego and "LIVE MUSIC" by The Stoney B Blues Band ~ Stoney B is the real deal, a true Blues Man. He was born in Chicago and grew up listening to Lil’ Howlin’ Wolf, his father, playing the blues. His dad learnt his blues from the Chicago Blues Legend, Howling Wolf. During Stoney B’s career he has played behind well-known blues musicians including James Cotton, Junior Wells, Koko Taylor, Frank Pelligrino & The Kingston Mines All Stars and The Pete Allen Band, who backed up Buddy Guy; Johnny Guitar Embry and the Blues Kings, Son Thomas, Homesick James, Lovie Lee, Roosevelt Boobie Barnes and Willie Mississippi Foster.
Stoney B created a well-known street performance with Elliott Small, who he named ‘Grandpa’, back in New Orleans in 1994 and they played Washington Parish State Fair in Franklinton, Louisiana for 12 years. He declined an offer to be part of Playing For Change with Grandpa Elliott and chose to relocate to the West Coast post Hurricane Katrina.Soon after his arrival in San Diego Stoney B and his Band became the new blues experience that got people talking. He was invited to open for BB King in 2011 and 2014 at Humphreys Concerts By The Bay; his Band played at Calgary International Blues Festival in 2013; he opened for and hosted the Orange County Film Festival in 2012; Baja Blues Festival in 2012; & Brea Jazz Festival in 2011 and 2012.

Stoney B is noted for his dynamic vocals and soulful guitar. He not only has loads of talent but that wonderful gift of communication which grabs people’s attention as he brings them into a truly enjoyable, masterful and often humorous experience as he entertains them with the Down Home Blues.

And there is even more...A Classic Car Show, Dancing and Special Appetizers,craft beer and friends and FUN!
