I am sure all of you are aware as of this date, restrictions on the virus crisis are being eased starting May 1st. So far bars and restaurants have not been given the go-ahead. PPBC has scheduled a tentative date for our Quarterly Jam June 17th at Stargazers Theatre, 10 S Parkside. We hope to see all our friends and members soon.
We are still working on the logistics of when to start Paint the Town Blue at Thorndale Park. If you have never been to one you are missing out. Thorndale Park is beautiful and located at Uintah and 23rd St. We regularly have great food vendors and we hire the best musicians from all over Colorado. If everything works out we will start June 4th and every Thursday in June and two weeks in July. Bring your lawn chairs and relax for two hours of fantastic music. We will continue to keep you informed as we may have to reschedule to later dates.
Our School of Blues has also been put on hold at this time. Hopefully we will be able resume the 2nd Sunday Youth Jams soon. Take 2 band hosts the jams and they are fantastic. PPBC is very proud to have these young musicians that will carry the Blues into the next generation.
Don’t forget to tune into 93.5 at noon for the community blues hour. This is a good time for musicians to post their contact information under ‘Your Band Bio’ under the Book a Band tab. Your information can be seen by bars and other venues that need a band. We like to thank KCOS for their continued support.
