Blues Travelin' - STLBlues is traveling
out west, where we'll be guests of our friends in the
Blues Society! In April it's off to the New
Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, a 10-day cultural
feast in which thousands of musicians, cooks and craftspeople
welcome 500,000 visitors each year. STLBlues will also
be doing some relief work, helping out where we can.
From the Jazzfest it's straight to Memphis, for the
Street Music Festival. Three magical days. Four
big stages. Thirty-three acres overlooking the Mighty
Mississippi, right on the heels of historic Beale Street.
More than sixty top artists. One outrageous party.
take our word for it, experience these events for yourself,
and tell them STLBlues sent you!
Thanks to all who helped support
the 4th Annual STLBlues Benefit
Concert. It was a tremendous
success, both artistically and as a fundraiser - over
$2,000 was raised for St. Louis’
Cancer Center and the Make-A-Wish
Foundation ® of Metro St. Louis.
