About the Players
At age 18, David Julia is a guitar prodigy who calls Central Florida home but who’s made his musical mark across the country. Since picking up the guitar as a 7-year-old, he’s grown his craft and honed his vocal and guitar skills under the tutelage of blues master guitarist Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin — with whom he recently collaborated on an album entitled “Inspired.” His blues style is described as both “contemporary and traditional electric blues.” Learn more about David Julia here.
Hailing from Sarasota, Trey Wanvig is 17 years old with a resume that already rocks. Trey has performed at numerous blues and music festivals including the Bradenton Blues Festival, Dallas International Guitar Festival, B.B. King’s in Memphis, Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa and even aboard the Allure of the Sea, one of Royal Caribbean’s “Oasis Class” cruise ships. Wanvig has performed alongside many great artists including Shemekia Copeland, Annika Chambers, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Bryan Lee, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson. Learn more about Trey Wanvig here.
Local favorite Johnny Jensen has been banging the drums and playing guitar from the age of two. Growing up on Captiva Island, he wasn’t much older than a toddler when he joined his Uncle Jimmy and band the Troublestarters for weekend jams at Jensen’s Marina & Cottages. Today, Johnny’s played everywhere from Fort Myers to Nashville, and has opened for a number of headline national touring acts — all before or at the age of 16 years. Learn more about Johnny Jensen here.
