Be sure to put on your dancing shoes for the fifth annual Jamaica Fest in Sutherland Springs! This lineup will have you on your feet ready to jive, rock, two-step, and all that applies.

Bringing traditional rock ’n’ roll to the public, Juan Anthony Pinto, or just “Pinto” for short, a Floresville High School senior, plays all the oldies but goodies, singing the rockabilly hits from Johnny Cash to Chuck Berry. He rocks out in the Ice Houses of San Antonio and sock hops his way playing in local events such as the Sutherland Springs Old Town Day and Parade.

“Blue Shift,” based out of Floresville, includes band members Spencer Leal on drums, bass player Kolten Bippert, guitarist Greg Livesay, and William Acosta on keyboard. Formed in 2010, the band draws inspiration from all genres of music ranging from “The Beatles” to “Kings of Leon” and “Weezer.”

“Broken DuckFeet,” formed by front man Michael Anthony, is a group of musicians that fell together practically overnight and it just felt right. The name “Broken DuckFeet” came one night when ducks and chickens came up onto the stage the group was performing on. Members of the group were observing some guy do what few would consider “two-stepping,” and at that moment Michael muttered the phrase, “He dances like he’s got broken duck feet. The band coined the name on that night and kept it as their own.

“The Flex Variety Band” consists of founding members Rene Silva, lead and rhythm guitars, Louis Garza, bass guitar lead, and Paul Allen, drums. They have played together since the early ’90s in Floresville. Joined by Kat Martinez on lead and backup vocals and Ray Figueroa, lead and rhythm guitar and keyboards, the group will perform hits from the ’60s to today, including R&B, blues, country, classic rock, pop, and rock en Española.

“Conjunto Puro Corazon” was founded in March 2012 with a mission to provide a live music setting for Conjunto music accordionist students. The group provides a full complement of instruments for a traditional Conjunto: drums, bass, bajo sexto, and accordion, with every student member bringing their own personal twist to Conjunto music.

See them all, plus Julian Gonzales and Elora & “Gasoline Alley,” at the fifth annual Jamaica Family Fun Festival from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, on the grounds of the Sutherland Springs Community Building at 411 Fourth St. in Sutherland Springs.
