Thank you to all who came out to hear the August 20 show by Franco Paletta and the Stingers. If you were unfortunate enough to miss it, here is a sampler video shot by Board member Ron Gardner.
Our next featured act is Chicago-based Studebaker John, who will wow us with his rockin’ harp playing, guitar riffs, and vocals at the Sapphire Room on Tuesday, September 9 at 6:30pm. This will be a ticketed event, $7 general admission and $5 for members with a discount code (check your email). You can get your tickets online here, or call 1-800-838-3006 and select option #1 (available 24/7). Unsold seats will be available for purchase at the door an hour before the event.
Coming up next weekend, Bogus Basin is hosting a music festival Saturday and Sunday August 30-31 from 1-7pm each day featuring many great local bands. Boise Blues Society Band plays from 3-3:45pm on Sunday, and we’ll have a booth there both days. This is a free, family-friendly event. If you’d like to help us out at the booth, shoot Ken Harris an email at email@example.com.
Our next Blues Jam Session will be Sunday, September 14 at The Drink. The jam is always a fun time with a variety of styles, songs, and instruments. Come out and make music with us and show your support for local musicians!
Are you in the mood for another music festival? Come out to Blues at the Flats on September 19 from 5-10pm. Bring the family and blankets/chairs. You can purchase food and beverages and listen to 5 local blues acts!
Once again, thank you to those of you who recently became members or renewed your membership. We ran out of membership cards and are ordering more, so please continue to be patient and we will get them out to you ASAP! Meanwhile, you are on our email list receiving these updates, so you won’t miss any opportunities to enjoy the blues.
