Category Archives: Bone Island Music Key West Crew

“Bone Island” Music – “Bone Island” or the original Spanish name “Cayo Hueso” (Bone Island) was the original name of Key West BEFORE English speaking settlers came into the picture when the name then began to change from being pronounced “Cayo Hueso”, to eventually being pronounced “Key West” – So Bone Island Music – Cayo Hueso Musica – or Key West Music – you get it right? So we like to call all of our friends, musicians, clubs, conch rockers and music loving fans the “Bone Island Music Crew”

“Key West Strut, Slippin’ Slidin’ Funking Blues” Song written played & recorded by Wayne Sorbelli of Island Guitar & Ukulele Music Store in Key West

Wayne Sorbelli here of Wayne’s World Music and Bone Island Music – that’s  IslandGuitar.com’s brick & mortar music stores in Key West & Dallas,   Wilkes-Barre,  Scranton! 

“Key West Strut, Slippin’ Slidin’ Funking Blues” is an instrumental blues/funk guitar piece that i’ve been writing for the last few years since i’ve been living in Key West. It is heavily influenced by my blues roots as well as the incredible vibe radiating from the energetic eclectically vibrating local music scene and it’s many local “Conch Rockers” and their addictive form of Trop Rock unique to the Florida Keys mixing American blues and country roots with Caribbean Cuban and Island Vibe sounds!

This is the soundtrack that was playing in my head the first time I cruised down Flagler Ave heading toward the nightly sunset celebration at Mallory Square, then onto one of the most fun music filled nights ever on world famous Duval Street!! While you listen to my guitar during this song, I hope some of the energy, excitement, and anxiousness that accompanies a great adventure spark your imagination and curiosity!!

This take of the song is an early one-take live demo and it is something that will have updates from time to time as I build my ideas.

Enjoy!

Recorded with and on and in:

You can try to play the blues, or just give in and let the blues play you!  That’s IT!  It’s THAT little struggle, THAT split second tension right there between me and my guitar and those unconscious note choices that are happening when the notes start to play me, to me,  THAT IS THE BLUES”  – Wayne Sorbelli

“We will be playing ALL BLUES! OLD blues NEW blues All Blues – Moose loves playing his older than dirt ELVIS signature Epiphone Acoustic Electric and I always LOVE my Gibson Les Paul or Dean Soltero electric guitar to pick, spank,  finger or slide on and squeeze them blues out of – heck I even carry my electric 6-string DOBRO and my new Morrell Electric Lap Steel 8 String guitar with me -and  just in case the blues chef Master Moose should call for some special ingredients – I even carry my ukulele to play the blues and slide on!!”

Wayne Sorbelli here at my music store in Key West jamming some blues in Am using my glass slide finger and Luna Cedar Top Ukulele.

I’m in standard soprano ukulele tuning GCEA.

I didn’t change anything about the uke, it’s a regular setup on an off the shelf Luna Cedar Top ukulele with nylon strings.

I’m sliding with my pinky wearing a glass slide Dunlop 212.
