Mike Sonder & Jamica Zion

Mike: One of the star teachers on the international blues dance scene. Mike strives to create a learning environment that is fun, challenging, and inclusive. The goal is for each individual student to find their next step forward and enjoy that process of growth. Mike loves seeing students’ eyes light up when they understand a concept or feel a movement work naturally in their body for the first time. Mike has taught dance in 21 countries and counting. He currently teaches Lindy Hop, Air Steps, Solo Jazz, and many different Blues styles.

Jamica: Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Jamica Zion takes pride in being a dynamic follow and growing lead. Jamica aims for range, not just in connection and style, but across genres too! Jamica holds multiple titles in Blues and Lindy Hop contests from top US events including Lindy Focus, Camp Jitterbug, Beantown, and Camp Hollywood. Jamica’s approach towards sharing dance with others includes a critical understanding and appreciation of its history and culture, while simultaneously ushering students to build their own styles and meaningful connections to it. Jamica loves to deliver inclusive and responsible classes that are creative, fun, and original.




Jakub Zomer Blues Trio

(Thursday September 26)

Jakub Zomer is the only exception to the festival music bands theme “The Female Voice Power”. We just couldn’t resist, Jakub is the Ray Charles of Prague! Jakub is a great keyboard player and one of the best jazz musicians in the Czech Republic. Among other things, he is a key player in Miss Mikey May’s Organ Grinders project and (not only) with this project you could see him on the stages of international blues and swing dance festivals. On Thursday, he will open the Bluesin’ Prague festival with his own Jakub Zomer Blues Trio. For that, Jakub will swap hammonds for smooth piano keys and his velvety voice, which will be accompanied by a virtuoso but precise rhythm section. This trio will create a super tasty blend of jazzy and energetic, as well as emotive and soulful songs for your feet and heart. You really can’t miss the pre-party this time!!!!



Géri & The Lizards

(Friday September 27)

Géri & The Lizards are stewing in the sun. They’re contemplating about the heat. Heat you will feel underneath your grooving feet and on your glistening skin, while you‘ll be immersed into their world of blues. It‘s Beneš, Micenko, Hajtmánek & Schnyder on the Shreds-Slap-Sticks & Sho-bees!



Miss Mikey May and the Organ Grinders

(Saturday September 28)

Miss Mikey May is a powerful, soulful vocalist with a background in theatre, cabaret, burlesque, and social dancing. The Organ Grinders is her Hammond-organ focused Swing and Blues project, featuring some of Czech Republic’s top Jazz and Blues musicians. Their music explores (and sometimes crosses!) the outer limits of Swing and Blues music in a dancer-friendly package, and if you’ve seen them perform at dance events throughout Europe then you’ll know you’ll have a groovy great time!




Fehero Rocher

(Sunday September 29)

For this concert, a quartet of great blues-based Prague musicians will return to their roots and play a set of unadulterated blues and jazz ballads from the 30s/40s in their own captivating version, where intimacy and rawness are in blissful harmony.
Sisa Fehér – vocals, Antonín Dlapa – guitar, Miloš Klápště – double bass, Jan Chalupa – drums
