Planning to go the Chicago Blues Festival in June 2014

The Festival runs from June 13 - 15th. Many activities also go on around the festival that same week typically ex: pre-blues festival show at Buddy Guys club "Legends".  I'll post more details and any inside scoop as we get closer. :)

      Sure Dorothy -- this event is held by the City of Chicago every year in June! It's a large festival - about the same size as the San Jose Jazz Summer Festival - except its just blues!! :-)

    Wow, what a great idea! I'll see if I can swing it and RSVP once I know! I'm from Chicago and can be the group's informal tour guide!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
