Long Beach Blues Festival News

Bobby Womack, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Mavis Staples, and the Funky Meters will be among the performers at the 30th annual Long Beach Blues Festival set for Saturday and Sunday, September 5 and 6, at Rainbow Lagoon Park, adjacent to the Long Beach Marina, in downtown Long Beach. Tickets for the festival went on sale on May 30, with ticket information available at jazzandblues.org.

The festival is the flagship event and an important revenue generator for KJAZZ 88.1 FM, the #1 full-time Jazz and Blues radio station, and one of only five remaining in the country.

Shepherd tops the bill on Saturday along with New Orleans’ Funky Meters featuring original members Art Neville and George Porter Jr. Also appearing Saturday are Johnny Winter, Betty Lavette, the Homemade Jamz Blues Band (the youngest band ever to be nominated for a Blues Music Award), and Hill Country Revue featuring Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew of the North Mississippi Allstars.

Sunday includes recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Womack, Staples, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Louisiana slide-guitar wizard Sonny Landreth, four-time Blues Music Award nominee Diunna Greenleaf, and the Andy Walo Trio, whose guitar-wielding frontman accompanied the late Junior Wells for many years.

Presale tickets became available exclusively through Ticketmaster Thursday, May 28. VIP ticket packages are available directly from KJAZZ by calling (310) 478-5061 or online at jazzandblues.org.
