I’d like to thank our founder, Stevie Weave, for making this blues festival happen, improving it, and turning this square mile city into a rockin’ party. Every year, MBMI receives more and more compliments in regards to how it is set up: a full day concert where bands collectively contribute their talent to our growing event. Thank you to all of the musicians, fans, and friends that make this day possible every year.
ps: A few weeks prior to this post, we were interviewed on our local cable station that airs in 5 cities and it was a lot of fun! (as soon as we’re given the video clip, that will be shared here)
They just keep getting better. What a great roster of talent this year. Thank you all collectively for such a great show and outstanding variety of Blues!
