Miami Beach's monthly Food Truck and Music Festival will be January 23 at the North Beach Bandshell, Collins Ave and 73rd Street. Music, provided by KCC Productions, features Franklin's Wheel from 6-9 PM.

Franklin’s Wheel creates music that takes you on a journey, through various moods, sounds and textures—from soothing ambiance to dynamic crescendos and percussive, upbeat grooves. The music created by Franklin's Wheel is filtered through influences that include Miles Davis, Steely Dan, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, and Santana. The band’s music is arranged to allow room for musical freedom and exploration, so no two Franklin’s Wheel performances are alike.

Franklin’s Wheel is a jazz/rock fusion jam band from Miami, FL, featuring Juan Gil on vocals, Mike Matthews on guitar, Brian Smith on keyboard, Jian Beckford on bass, Robert Barcelo on drums, and Rey “Conga" Diaz on percussion. The band was born out of a desire to explore jazz/rock fusion in a contemporary alternative rock/jam band format that pays homage to the rootsy fusion sound of the 1970s. The band members are all seasoned veterans of the South Florida music scene and beyond, and bring their diverse influences together in a unique blend of styles.

Currently Franklin’s Wheel is working on their debut album, to be released soon. You can find the band performing at various venues throughout South Florida and beyond.
