 Bear Creek Blues Festival

The Slater Blues Festival committee is proud to present our 3rd annual Bear Creek Blues Festival, Saturday, June 24, 2006. The festival will be held on the football field in Slater’s City Park.

The gates will open at 3:30 and the music will start at 4:00 p.m.

Ticket prices are: Adults and children 13 and older ~ Advance/$10 - Gate/$15, children 5-12 - $6.00 and children 4 and younger get in free. Tickets will be available to purchase in May at the following outlets. Slater City Hall, Vox Box – Marshall, 7th Heaven – Sedalia, Streetside Records – Columbia, and WISE Lighting and Sound – Jefferson City.

The musical lineup will be:

Fletcher’s One Man Classic Blues Band – Keith Fletcher hails from Columbia, MO. and has entertained blues fans on the street, at festivals, out of his van, at any venue you can imagine. His ability to play guitar and sing with his own pre recorded music is truly a sight and sound to experience.

The Blues Notions – Since 1987, they have been Kansas City, Missouri’s pre-eminent blues band. The Notion’s blend of traditional and jump blues with their own original material creates a well rounded show that swings, shouts and leaves the crowd clamoring for more.

The Salty Dawg (a/k/a Gary Coble) – Since 1997 Gary has been playing R&B in the Kansas City, Missouri area. His fans and fellow musicians nicknamed him “The Salty Dawg”. His style ranges from a funky “can’t stay in your seat” blues to a whole lotta soul blues.

Alvin Jett & the Phat Noiz Blues Band – A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Alvin Jett has been entertaining audiences in the St. Louis area for over twenty years. The Phat Noiz blues band is his means for delivering to the audience his brand of in-your-face, hard driving blues. They represented MOBlues at the IBC challenge in Memphis this past January.

Bryan Lee – A player and singer of fierce conviction and deep soul, Lee has been New Orleans, Louisiana’s best kept secret for the past two decades. With ten recordings and touring all over North America and Europe, Lee’s down home Cajun sound is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

There will be lots of vendors with a wide variety of food & brew to choose from.
Free primitive camping will be available in designated areas of the park so bring your lawn chairs and blankets and get your fill of food, brew and blues.
