Soul is what it's all about with this gut-busting, heart wrenching quartet. Performing a danceable mixture of funk, blues, and old school soul, Betty Fox is Florida's HOTTEST new vocalist, and the ideal entertainer for your special event!

Voted number 1 for "Best Local Blues Act" in Creative Loafing's Best of the Bay 2012 Reader's Poll

WMNF 88.5:
"For the past year there's been a female vocalist who seemingly came out of nowhere and has become really one of the most acclaimed singers in the Tampa Bay area… Betty Fox"
– Randy Wynne, WMNF 88.5 Program Director

Examiner.com:
"Though her good looks and her subtle, sultry stage presence are reminiscent of someone like Natasha Bedingfield, Fox possesses an older, wiser voice, replete with the hills and valleys grown in slat shanties tucked into backwoods or grimy back alleys where hard souls are forged in poverty and solitude. She reports that her pipes were forged in the churches of South Tampa, an area replete with its own blues history. In fact, there were moments in Fox's brief Heatwave stint when it seemed she channeled the likes of Tampa Red, or his some time partner, Ma Rainey.
And it's imperative for all of St. Pete's serious blues fans to get to one of these gigs, as Fox's next review will likely glow exponentially brighter."
-Don O'Cull, St. Petersburg Live Music Examiner

Jazz & Blues Florida Magazine:
"Not many young singers could do justice to the late Etta James. But Tampa's Betty Fox was asked to do just that when she performed during a tribute to the soul-blues icon at Skipper's Smokehouse in March. (Her heart-ripping read of "I'd Rather Go Blind" explains why.) Like many of her predecessors, Fox sang in church before getting bit by the blues. Her songbook includes Muddy Waters' "Champagne and Reefer" and Howlin' Wolf's "Built for Comfort," as well as soul gems by Sam Cooke and Bill Withers. Helmed by exceptional guitarist Josh Nelms, Fox's Dirty Bastards are among the workin'est groups in the region. The singer also pens plenty of her own tunes, which can be heard on her new release..."
- Bob Weinberg, Contributing Editor
