Riverside Blues (St.Marys)
For the past couple of Labor Day Weekends, on Saturday and Sunday, St.Marys has been hosting the RIVERSIDE BLUES. It is a wonderful gathering of blues bands from all over the US. Opening the Blues Fest are local bands which are nothing to sneeze at.
We have some great local bands in our area. Seven bands are featured each day, and you can hear some great blues musicians, from Chicago blues. Memphis toe-tapping, and New Orleans style music. It is well worth the price of the ticket and then some.
Located at KC Geiger Park on a hill side where you can see and hear from all directions, Blues Fest features not only great music but some wonderful food vendors. You can make it a day, starting at 1:00 in the afternoon and going until 11:00 at night when the last band puts away the guitars.
If you still haven’t had enough at that point, some of the bands play into the wee hours of the morning at a couple local hangouts. It’s a great time and makes a wonderful weekend.
Big Thank You goes out to Lee Miller who gave me this post. Nice pictures Lee, I really like that first one.
