Event Details


Joey Tenuto Jr. was born in Chicago Bluesland and was raised to live up to his musical name (in Italian, Tenuto stands for a musical chord held or sustained to its fullest value).
Joey has been performing the last 22 years throughout South Floridawith his father Joe Tenuto.
He’s a natural born songwriter and performer and holds every note to its fullest value. Music is more than a song to Joey. It’s his life. He has lived The Blues.
Joey began performing at age 3 throughout the Illinois Blues scene with his father in The Joe Tenuto Band.
His father knew big things were in store for little Joey when he would put his Strat in front of him and Joey would just strum it naturally. He could sing before he could talk.
He’s been playing the South Florida waterfront bars since he was 6 years old. He became a local sensation when he went on his knees and continued playing while holding his guitar behind his head. People were throwing money at little Joey.
Today you can find Joey Tenuto performing across America, from South Florida to Illinois, with his father Joe Tenuto. He’s also going on tour in Europe this summer to perform with Polish Blues legend Jan Bledowski.
