New faces on the scene include guitarist Nick Colionne and saxophonist James Vargas, who are making their first-ever live appearances on the island. Other artists include Kim Waters, Everette Harp, Michael Lington, Steve Oliver, Ronnie Laws, Euge Groove and the entire crew of the Groovin' for Grover tour featuring Gerald Albright, Richard Elliot, Jeff Lorber and Paul Taylor.

Although she will not be performing, saxophonist Mindi Abair will be on the island as Art Goodís co-host.

"Catalina is a great place to relax and an even better place to play music," says Down to the Bone's Stuart Wade. His band plays Oct. 16 at noon.
