Kansas City Mikal Shapiro & Chad Brothers
http://www.mikalshapiro.com/ | http://mikalshapiro.bandcamp.com/
A dynamic Americana duo from Kansas City, Mikal Shapiro and Chad Brothers deliver classic country and folk music alongside critically acclaimed originals. Strengthened by Shapiro’s colorful lyricism and Brothers world-class flat picking, the couple showcases their craft with simple harmonies, stellar guitar interplay and a magnetic onstage chemistry.
Chad Brothers was raised in Winfield, Kansas, home of the International Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival. His fresh approach to the guitar reflects a love for classic melodies, rock and roll, acoustic flatpicking and an ear for invention. Tasteful and accomplished, he has cultivated a style all his own.
Mikal Shapiro is a Kansas City songwriter whose musical influences span popular songs, psych rock, lounge and old time spirituals. She has toured extensively across the United States and has recorded five critically acclaimed albums. Kansas City Star critic Tim Finn forecast her new release “The Musical” to be one of the top 10 albums of 2015. A third generation storyteller, she draws inspiration from her travels, love life, and the state of the Union.

Mojo Medicine Show & 50 Shades of Blue, two IBC Finalist Duos both made of different members of Papa Juke + some songs as a full band!
The Mojo Medicine Show is a unique blues duo with deep roots in the music of Washboard Sam, Jazz Gillum & Sonny Terry. Our music takes you down south to the porches of rural Louisiana in the 1930's and the Chitlin' Circuit of Mississippi in the 1950's. We specialize in original, psychedelic, back porch blues blending the jug juice of 1930's juke band music with the electric kool-aid jams of the 1960's.
Christine Webb and Jim "Doc" Seely have been playing together as part of the popular band "PAPA JUKE" for the past year and a half. We have recently started a blues duo "50 Shades of Blue" which includes covers as original songs. Christines soulful vocals and solid bass playing, along with Docs mastery of acoustic, slide, and electric guitar gives this dynamic duo to the ability to cover a wide variety of blues genres....All 50 shades of blue.
