March Blues News
So far 2020 has been exciting for Pikes Peak Blues. Our first big fundraiser February 29th, Leap into the Blues, at the Gold Room was a huge success. The bands included Take 2 Blues, Noah Mast and the Blues Masters, and BJ Estares and Route 61. There were tons of raffle and silent auction items donated from businesses here in Colorado Springs. We would like to thank our special events coordinator Cynthia Hurwitz for putting together such a wonderful evening.
This year we are planning to continue expanding the Blues. Our School of Blues youth band Take 2 Blues hosts a youth jam at Jazz Funk Connections the second Sunday of every month. Jazz Funk Connections has been a big supporter of our efforts. All aspiring musicians ages twelve to eighteen are welcome. Come out and listen to our talented youth and enjoy the best catfish and barbeque around.
Our quarterly jams have been postponed due to closure of Stargazers during this time. We have re-scheduled a tentative date of April 29th. We will keep posting any changes as needed.
Don’t forget to tune in to 93.5 at noon for our community blues hour. Bands can continue to post their contact information under Your Band Bio tab so that information can be assessed by those wanting to book blues bands. This can be found under the Book a Band tab.
PPBC exists because of your continued participation and donations. We want to thank all of our members and lovers of the blues. If you haven’t become a member yet please consider joining today.
