JP Soars & The Red Hots’ will perform at Warren’s Rec Room in Alma on Saturday, Sept. 15, as part of the band’s Southbound I-95 CD Release Tour.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m.

Little Steven’s Underground Garage on Sirius XM recently selected Soar’s song “Dog Catcher” as its coolest song in the world for the week of Aug. 13-19.

Southbound I-95 is Soar’s fourth studio full-length release.

“Over the years I have been fortunate to have met and played with some incredible musicians,” said blues guitarist-vocalist Soars. “

Born in California and raised in Arkansas, Soars has called South Florida home since 1985.

Soars’ touring schedule continues to grow with performances throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and South America, as well as repeat appearances on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, and, most recently, the celebrated Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas.

For the past several years, Soars has additionally been part of the regional all-star blues act, Southern Hospitality, that also features guitarist-vocalist Damon Fowler, keyboardist-vocalist Victor Wainwright, Red Hots drummer Chris Peet and Fowler’s bassist Matt Walker.

Soars got bitten by the blues bug via a legendary source in 1988, when he won a guitar and two tickets in a raffle to see B.B. King in concert. Meeting the iconic guitarist and singer further enhanced the young musician’s quest to learn more about the timeless power of the music.

Soars started his blues recording career a decade ago with the 2008 release Back of My Mind, followed by More Bees With Honey (2011) and Full Moon Night in Memphis (2014). Collectively, his catalog has received extensive airplay on the XM Radio programs of Little Steven (“Underground Garage”) and B.B. King (“Bluesville”); Top 50 status on the Living Blues charts, Blues Music Award nominations for “Best Contemporary Male Blues Artist of the Year,” and “Best Blues CD” and “Album of the Year” accolades from the Palm Beach Post.

Soars is a past winner of both the IBC (International Blues Challenge) and the prestigious Albert King Award.
