Gainesville is blessed to have Eric Gales, easily one of the greatest musicians and performers in the industry today, on stage at the High Dive March 21!

Eric has played Blues festivals all over the world, played alongside Carlos Santana at Woodstock 1994 and the Guitare en scène Festival in France in 2016, has won top Blues Rock Guitarist at the Blues Music Awards the last two years, and journalists and musicians and basically anyone that knows about music, know that Memphis native Eric Gales is a mind-blowing talent.

“One of the best, if not the best, guitar player in the world” - Joe Bonamassa

“He is absolutely incredible” - Carlos Santana

“the notes drip from Gales’ fretboard like warm honey” – Classic Rock magazine

“the injection of danger and unpredictability that the blues-rock scene desperately needs” - Guitar Magazine

“truly the man is blessed” - Blues Matters


Opening the show will be Gainesville’s own Root Redemption!
