Toby Lee is a 14-year-old blues rock guitarist.

Hailed a future superstar of the blues by Joe Bonamassa – Toby’s videos have been viewed over 300 Million times!

Toby’s musical journey began at just 4 years old when his Grandma bought him a yellow and green ukulele. This little instrument went all over the place with him and he played it constantly until he’d broken every single string. Stirred by the greats, he now took every opportunity he could to listen to Jimi HendrixStevie Ray Vaughan, and Gary Moore, to mention but a few.

But it was the Blues Heaven Festival in Denmark in November, 2017, that took Toby’s profile into a different league. A video of him and Chicago blues man Ronnie Baker Brooks playing together went viral and was viewed over 108 Million times in two months. And the music still keeps pulsing through his veins.

He recently jammed with Buddy Guy in Denmark and, at the Gibson Showcase at NAMM with Perter Frampton and Billy Gibbons.

Both Days 5:30 PM - 6:00 PM

To say that Kal David is just a great Blues guitarist would be a shame, although he is that, indeed. Other Blues guitarists don't come close to his wide range of styles, the colors on his palette. Kal David is a fine and experienced guitarist who can bring you to your knees with his soulfulness, but don't miss his depth. Kal David is a singer. A true vocalist, a professional with way above vocal chops. His gritty, yet polished vocals take you on an emotion filled ride. The world is about to wake up to a true living legend of music. If you have the opportunity, don't miss an electrifying Kal David performance.

Kal’s extensive credits look like the who’s who of the music industry. Working for long periods with Etta James and Johnny Rivers and doing a long stint with John Mayall and the Blues Breakers and also performing and/or recording with BB King, Peter Cetera, Paul Cotton, Smokey Robinson, Joe Walsh, Bonnie Raitt, John Lennon, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Paul Young, Robbie Dupree and a host of others.
