It's back!  The 12th annual Southwest Florida Blues Festival is coming to Cape Coral on November 19, 2011.   Taking place outdoors at the German American Social Club, the Southwest Florida Blues Festival promises to be a day of great family entertainment and sweet live blues in Cape Coral.

A full-lineup hasn't been released for the fest quite yet, but the Southwest Florida Blues Fest promises to bring together some of the best blues musicians in the business for a great day of live music.  Last year some fantastic blues musicians converged in Cape Coral for the fest including Guitar Shorty, Danny Shepard and Blue Mercury, Beth McKee and many more.

The 12th Annual Southwest Florida Blues Festival is not only a full day day of fantastic live music, but also a huge fundraiser for organizations throughout the Cape Coral and Ft. Myers communities.  The $15 you can pay for an advanced ticket, or $20 for a day of fest ticket will benefit youth groups, music education, senior citizen support networks, scholarships and other great local charities.

Although the full lineup hasn't been announced yet, there are a couple artists confirmed for the fest.  Blues legend, Smokin' Joe Kubek and guest, Bnois King are slated to headline with a signature dose of down home Texas blues while 22-year old, up-and-comer Samantha Fish will hit Cape Coral with her brand of fiery, electric blues like the city didn't know what hit it.

Stay tuned here at as more bands for the 12th Annual Southwest Florida Blues Festival will be announced in the upcoming months.
