Help support the High Dive and the North Central Florida Blues Society while enjoying three great acts!

Rick Randlett Band: Rick Randlett has been playing the blues since the early ’70s. He has toured the East Coast extensively from Quebec, Canada to Florida, sharing the stage with many well-known musicians, including Joe Perry of Aerosmith. He reached the International Blues Challenge semifinals as a duo with Cassie Keenum, representing the North Central Florida Blues Society. His last two solo CDs charted in the top five in the Roots Music Review Blues charts. The Rick Randlett Band features Rick Randlett on vocals, lap steel, and pedal steel; Kellen Vincent on vocals and guitar; Mitch Rogers on vocals, bass, and keys; and Lance Spano on drums. Their latest CD Night Songs has received significant critical praise, and rightfully so.

The Shakedown featuring Michelle Banfield: The Shakedown, featuring Michelle Banfield, is a contemporary Blues – soul – rock ‘n roll band. Michelle’s powerhouse vocals are much admired by Blues fans and she is a very dynamic and beloved performer. The Shakedown, recently spotlighted in both the Gainesville Sun and the Independent Florida Alligator, is blessed with some stellar instrumental talent including: Frank Bougher (lead guitar), Sean Crowley (percussion), Keith Ladd (bass guitar) and Randy Hensley (keys/rhythm guitar).

Sweet William: “Sweet William” Ennis is a singer/songwriter who plays original songs written over the span of fifty years. His acoustic finger pick style weaves through stories of his life with the simple feel of storytelling Blues. Sweet William competed in the 2019 International Blues Challenge, representing the North Central Florida Blues Society, and also played the Folk in the Springs festival.
