* Blues Brothers Soul Band.

Got a real good tribute act for you guys- the Blues Brothers Soul Band scheduled to play the Boca Black Box in Boca Raton on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 at 8pm.

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have seen the Blues Brothers Soul Band something like 5 times- trust me when I tell you- this band will have you “swearing” that Jake and Elwood are right in front of you- singing “Soul Man” – not to mention “Rawhide” (so I won’t)!

The Blues Brothers Soul Band is coming to Boca Black Box on a “mission from God” — to get you on your feet and having a great time. This fun, high-energy tribute to the legendary Jake and Elwood Blues (originally created by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd) features a live band playing all the soulful, feel-good hits from Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, Aretha Franklin, James Brown and beyond. The playful tribute — complete with all the signature dance moves, shades and pork-pie hats — mixes the music and playful stage antics of the original Blues Brothers while paying homage to the country’s rich history of rhythm and blues, gospel and soul music.

This band is all about putting on a super high energy rock & roll show! Influenced by Blues, R&B, R&R and all great music from the decades., this more than simply a tribute act playing the best of the Rolling Stones’ music from the 60’s, ’70s and ’80s. Possessing a similar energy to the Rolling Stones’ phenomenal live sound, capturing the power and excitement of those now legendary stadium tours with all the big hits and a wide selection of rarities sure to please casual and hard core Stones fans alike

The Donut Shoppe (Jacksonville)

Posted on September 24th, 2021 · American Desserts Fast Food Jacksonville · 1 Comment »

***** The Donut Shoppe, 1535 University Boulevard North, Jacksonville, Florida 32211, (904) 743-1844.

Got an absolutely terrific donut joint for you guys to checkout- The Donut Shoppe in Jacksonville.

Real simple tale to tell- yesterday morning, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “re-discovered” The Donut Shoppe which we last visited in late December, 2017. For you “historians” out there- the joint has been in business for something-like 59 years and I gotta tell you that its cake and yeast raised donuts absolutely kill! Order/pickup at counter, handful of tables and coffee to wash the donuts down with. Open 7 days a week, 5am-1pm.

Trust Jeff Eats on this- it doesn’t take a NYC cop to know that The Donut Shoppe’s donuts are off the chart delicious!

If you’re into donuts- and live in, work in or just visiting Jacksonville – The Donut Shoppe is an absolute must try!

***** The Donut Shoppe, 1535 University Drive North, Jacksonville, Florida 32211, (904) 743-1844.

Trust Jeff Eats on this one…I know my donuts–I seriously doubt that there is anyone in America who knows donuts better than I do–except maybe for some current/and retired members of the New York City Police Department.

With the above in mind, Jeff Eats would match Jacksonville’s–The Donut Shoppe’s donuts against any player in America. Now nothing for nothing-as I just recently found this joint, but I understand, that for the past 52 years it has been cranking out donuts Tuesday-Sunday 5am-1pm (closed on Monday) to a constant line of customers (I know that sounds a bit over dramatic)–by the way, don’t tell the IRS (look at today’s date) but The Donut Shoppe is a cash-only joint.

Not going to bore you -telling you about the mixed dozen I “had”…suffice it to say, after eating these donuts you’ll know that Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme (to a lesser extent) got you hooked on-shall we say -g a r b a g e…there I said it!

One final thought, just so we are straight with each other, garbage is ok-unless real-good stuff is available nearby. You know, “any port in a storm.”

While I’m on Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’s donuts are made in a central commissary and then delivered to its stores- Krispy Kreme is now building a “small foot print” store which follows the Dunkin’ commissary model. Obviously- the economics of baking in house, doesn’t work for these huge chains. Finally, I don’t know about you, but I find Dunkin’s donuts to have an oily after-taste and Krispy’s glazed donuts don’t taste so-hot (pun intended) when they aren’t straight out of the oven.

The Donut Shoppe is a great joint to know about. The only problem that Jeff Eats got with the joint–it’s only open until 1pm and a drive from Boca Raton every morning would be a bit nerve racking.

An Evening with The Immediate Family
About this event

The Immediate Family is a unique group of iconic musicians who have played together for decades but never as their own band. Known for their long, illustrious careers backing up such Hall-of-Fame artists such as James Taylor, Keith Richards, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Stevie Nicks and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, guitarists Danny Kortchmar and Waddy Wachtel, drummer Russ Kunkel, and bassist Leland Sklar have come together, along with guitarist Steve Postell, to perform their own songs as The Immediate Family, a band that can legitimately be called a supergroup. The powerhouse rockers have toured nationally and in Japan.

The Immediate Family (the modern iteration of a legendary studio ensemble known as “The Section”) is a rock and roll band composed of four of the most recorded, respected and sought-after players in modern music: Danny Kortchmar (guitar and vocals), Waddy Wachtel (guitar and vocals), Leland Sklar (bass), Russ Kunkel (drums) and the addition of prominent touring, session guitarist and songwriter Steve Postell (guitar and vocals). Frequent collaborators both in the studio and on-stage, their work can be heard on albums from Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Warren Zevon, Graham Nash, Neil Young, David Crosby and many, many, many more. Kortchmar, Sklar and Kunkel have worked together since the early 70s and made up three-quarters of The Section, best known for both their studio and live work in support of some of the top selling singer/songwriters and solo singers in the history of music, as well as their own acclaimed instrumental albums. (By mid 70s, they were later joined by Wachtel). Collectively, these musicians helped define the sound of a generation.

Danny Kortchmar’s credits as guitarist, producer, songwriter, and session musician include work with James Taylor, Don Henley, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne and Billy Joel, among many others. As a songwriter, Kortchmar has both written alone or collaborated with numerous artists, penning indelible tracks such as Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry,” “All She Wants to Do Is Dance,” and “New York Minute,” as well as Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby” and “Shaky Town,” to name a few.

Legendary guitarist, producer and songwriter Waddy Wachtel has worked with many of the same artists as Kortchmar, as well as artists like the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, Randy Newman, Bryan Ferry and the late Warren Zevon, with whom he co-wrote and produced a number of hit songs including “Werewolves of London,” which The Immediate Family has included in their set list. Wachtel’s production work includes Keith Richards, Bryan Ferry, George Thorogood and The Church, and he has composed numerous scores for feature films.

Leland Sklar has performed in the studio and on tour with Phil Collins, James Taylor, Toto and Billy Cobham, to name a few. Actually, Sklar has the most credits of any of the members of The Immediate Family, having worked on over 2,600 albums.

Russ Kunkel’s credits include Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, Lyle Lovett and dozens more. He has created and co-produced film scores for Mike Nichols’ Heartburn, Joyce Chopra’s Smooth Talk and New World Films’ Certain Fury. Production work includes Clannad, Jimmy Buffett, The Derek Trucks Band, Dan Fogelberg, Aaron Neville and others.

Steve Postell is a seasoned touring and session player who has worked with David Crosby, Jennifer Warnes, Michael McDonald, John Oates, Robben Ford and many others. He recorded and mixed the final 3 performances of Ravi Shankar, and has scored films including “Dying To Know” about Timothy Leary & Ram Dass and narrated by Robert Redford. He has released several solo records, including the critically acclaimed “Time Still Knockin’” on Immergent Records

***** Josie’s Ristorante, 1602 South Federal Highway, Boynton Beach, Florida 33435, (561) 364-9601.

Josie’s Ristorante is a “mom and pop” Southern Italian Red Sauce Joint. You know the drill, soup or salad, garlic rolls, entree and a side of pasta…pizzas, subs, calzones and strombolis. Prices are neighborhood pizzeria prices…Veal parmigiana $17.99 etc.

Over the years, I have eaten at Josie’s something like 10 times…the food is real good. I especially like Josie’s interior/atmosphere, it looks like an old bar circa 1960 with dark wood tables and booths and bar area. There is also an out-door dining patio. This is a real easy going joint, so tee shirts/shorts are a pretty common site here.

Last night I ate dinner at Josie’s. I “sampled” the veal parmigiana, veal marsala, and zuppa di pesce…everything was right on the money!

If you live in Josie’s neighborhood, this is a good joint to know about…

Josie’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
