August Blues News
Lots of things going on in the Blues Community
Cool stuff is happening in the Colorado Springs Blues scene. Our Paint the Town Blue summer concert series was great this year. Three Denver area bands and three local blues bands. 350 to 400 people showing up at Thorndale Park each week. We did it with NO RAIN OUTS! Very fun season. Our youth band "Take Two Blues" is retooling and will be opening at our September Quarterly Jam. These kids are working hard and sounding good. Big news is a new jazz club has just opened and is featuring Wednesday Night Blues.
We want to remind you that the PikesPeakBlue.org website could be your one-stop-shop for blues in Colorado Springs. We are encouraging blues bands to fill out there YOUR BAND BIO and list their gigs on our website. The YOUR BAND BIO goes directly to our BOOK A BAND page where club owners and promoters can go if seeking blues bands.
Denver favorite, Erik Boa, is back in Colorado Springs on Wednesday, August 7th. He is opening Wednesday Night Blues at the new Jazz-Funk Connection. BBQ and Catfish headline the menu. Please come out and support Erik and the blues this week.
Our jams at Stargazers are always fun. Take Two Blues (our School of Blues youth band is opening). Lots of younger, new blues musicians are showing up along with old favorites.
Remember to tune in to our Community Blues Hour every Friday at 12pm on Jazz93.5. This show is starting to gain popularity! Put us on your calendar.
