IRS freezes accounts of Sonny Boy Blues Society

From WMC TV, Memphis

Plans are continuing for the 2007 Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival sponsored by the Sonny Boy Blues Society, despite an I-R-S freeze on the society's assets. That's according to blues society president Rayne Gordon.

Gordon said the festival, formerly the King Biscuit Blues Festival, lost money last year, between 25-thousand and 30-thousand dollars. He said the group suffered the losses because it lost funding sources right before the festival.

According to Gordon, the society's assets were frozen for taxes that were not filed properly, and the group is working to pay the money it owes even as it plans for this year's festival.

The festival has seen almost 22 years of continued packed crowds despite the name change from The King Biscuit Blues Festival.

Publishers note - The Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival is a legendary festival, set in a historically significant part of the South....very deep Blues. STLBlues encourages every fan of the ABHF (formerly 'Da Biscuit, but that's another story) to attend this year and help keep this event alive!
