Meet the SFFAMC Board Members

Elyse Brunt: (Hollywood) 2 year term 

I have been an active member of the Broward Folk Club since 2000. I have been the Secretary the BFC since 2021 and previously served on the board many years ago. I have also taken on the role of webmaster and media specialist for the club. I am also a musician and have taught ukulele and guitar to students in elementary and middle school. I am very passionate about the promotion of local music events, especially working with young people to grow our community and expand our outreach with schools, colleges, and community organizations.

Bill Wunderlich: (Pompano Beach) 2 year term

I have been the President of the Broward Folk Club since July 2021 and have played a key role in preserving the Club which was in the verge of extinction. I have also been Festival Director for the 2022 & 2023 South Florida Folk & Acoustic Music Festival at the Rodeo Grounds. I have been active in the Broward Folk Club since 2008, having served as President and a Board Member from 2009 to 2018.

My business background as a CPA, CFO and businessman has provided me with the experience necessary to lead an organization.

Evan Frankel: (Aventura, N. Dade)

I grew up in Brooklyn, went to law school at American University, and was involved with singing and acting from the time I was a child. I am a self taught musician. I have traveled extensively throughout the United States and the world, both before, during and after I was a Public Defender in New York City, and then an attorney who specialized in arts and entertainment, and real estate. I collaborated on an album with Pete Kennedy and Caroline Doctorow in 2012 and moved down here shortly thereafter. I have performed with many great musicians here in Florida, mostly at the Luna Star Cafe, and
been on Michael Stock’s show a few times. Some of the music has been played in many parts of the world which have internet access. I am familiar with 501(c)(3) organizations as I was CEO of a community organic farm in East Hampton, NY, where I lived year round for about twenty years.
I am now mostly retired and do have the time and energy to give to you. Whichever way this goes, I will welcome the opportunity to meet other musicians and be part of our club.
Arlene Boumel: (Coral Springs)
I’ve loved folk music since I was a child learning to play guitar around the campfire at my Dad’s Pocono summer camp. I served on the BFC Board from 2005 thru 2021 in multiple capacities including 5 years as President and multiple as Secretary. I was Director of South Florida Folk Round Up in 2009 and 2010, Director of Festivus in 2012 and 2013, co-Director of the 2014 South Florida Folk Festival, and served as Music Director for the 2015 thru 2020 South Florida Folk Festivals. I also coordinated our monthly open mic/concert series for many years, and enjoyed booking artists for that event. Over the years I’ve hosted song swaps and gotten involved in
planning other special Club events. In addition, I have run a House Concert series since 2004 (with a gap during the Covid years). I love playing and singing as much as I enjoy organizing, and you will often find me at open mics and song swaps, guitar in tow. The Folk Club has always been close to my heart, and the community is like a family to me. After having taken a hiatus, it would be an honor to be back on the Board and to help the SFFAMC expand its reach with diverse programming. When I am not involved in folk music, I have a thriving psychotherapy practice in Coral Springs.
Bruce Feldman: (Sunrise)

I have been a Board member of Broward Folk for over twenty years and am currently Vice-President. Other positions that I have held include Parliamentarian, Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary, Open Mic/Concert Co-Ord, Children’s Stage Manager, Chair of Performer

Selection Committee, and a Preliminary Judge of the Singer-Songwriter Competition for the South Florida Folk Festival. For the past several years, I have run the Folk Club table at the festival and this past year I was also the Director of the Singer-Songwriter Competition.

Peter Fox: (Sunrise)

I’ve reinvented myself several times: newspaper editor, bicycle touring company owner-operator, middle-school science teacher, stay-at-home dad, massage therapist. Throughout my life, I’ve been fortunate to be exposed to and enriched by a remarkable variety of music and musicians. Growing up, we had a baby grand in the living room. My siblings took piano lessons, I played the violin and acoustic guitar. After becoming a massage therapist 20 years ago, I put the instruments aside to preserve my hands. But I love to sing, which I joyfully do on most Sunday mornings with a local community choir.

In my rebellious teens and 20s, I discovered Greenwich Village and contemporary folk music. I mostly listen to classical music and opera (yes, opera!) at home these days. When I’m out and about in the world however, I’m an avid listener to and promoter of “folk and acoustic” music. I’ve been
a board member of the folk club for the past decade or so. Bottom line: I love music – It’s the key to my soul.

Jeff Jacob: (Hollywood)

I spent 18 years in Nashville working in the music industry. During that time I worked with a wide variety of artists including Rascal Flatts, Bryan Adams, Loretta Lynn, Del McCoury Band and Brad Paisley. I also spent 3 years as a Staff Songwriter for the “Songs of Love Foundation’, andhave released 6 albums as a Singer/Songwriter. In 2011 I founded The Song Team, Their programs combine songwriting and professional development. In this capacity, I lead interactive team-building programs for groups of 8 to 1800.. teaching corporations how to better tell their stories and collaborate through songwriting. In 2018, I led a TEDx Songwriting Program.

Currently, I am the executive director at Temple Beth El in Hollywood and have been leading non-profits in the sectors of Mental Health, Animal Welfare and Faith-based for the past decade. I am a musician and founding member of JewGrass Revival, the Folk-Rock Worship band at Temple Beth El. I began working with the S. Florida Folk & Acoustic Music Club after the 23’ festival, and I host the “Songs in the Chapel” series at TBE of Hollywood (in conjunction with the SFFAMC). I am excited to work collaboratively and build our audience and outreach.

Lou Dominguez: (North Miami)

I became Vice President of the Dade County Folk Club in November of 2022 and have served until our clubs merged, when I then became a board member for our new club. I host events and play mostly in North Miami at the Luna Star Cafe. I’m also a singer/songwriter working on my fourth album of original music. My last record, ‘We the People’ went to number 11 on the Folk-DJ list chart. I am happy to be on board and look forward to contributing to the Folk and Americana music scene here in SoFla.

Cecilia St. King: (Delray)

Cecilia St. King – Inner Peace Troubadour is an award-winning, internationally recognized, singer/songwriter/ recording artist, who has dedicated her life to healing our planet through the curative power of music.
Cecilia is a spiritual teacher, and musical mystic. Translating the Ageless Wisdom Teaching into story and song, it is mindfulness meets music. She is a way-shower, a guide, an awakener, who through the medium of melody creates social change. By refreshing the spirit, revitalizing the mind, energizing the body & affirming the wisdom of the heart, her music guides people to reconnect to themselves and to each other.
Over her decades-long career, she has performed worldwide in venues as diverse as San Quentin Prison, the United Nations, The BlueBird café in Nashville, TN, The Bitter End, NYC, and the Parliament of the World’s Religion and the South Florida Folk-Festival. 

Jo Hoffman: (Hollywood)

If you met me when I first joined Broward Folk Club, you may know me as Penny. Today I go by my middle name, Jo. I’ve been a BFC member for a long time – I don’t remember when I joined. Always on the side lines, I reasoned it might be time for me to step up and join our governing board.

Musically, I sing, play ukulele pretty well, guitar badly, and I’ve written a few decent songs. I currently teach ukulele to senior adults at John Knox Village. I am a huge fan of live music and you’ll find me at every sort of music event – rock and roll, sofar concerts, Broadway musicals, opera, and local open mics.

My vision and hope for our club is to continue to grow our membership, and to make our annual festival a must-attend event for the whole community.

Tim LaRoque: (Hollywood)

I am a 24 year-old Hollywood native who has dedicated my life to music. Whether it’s performing as an independent artist, working as a musical mentor in after-school programs with non-profit Guitars Over Guns, or organizing shows as lead curator for Sofar Sounds Fort Lauderdale, I know my way around engaging with the local music scene. I play around town regularly and am involved with many local organizations. I am looking forward to bringing in a diverse, well-rounded membership/audiences to SFFAMC & their events. Contact us at
