I will designate a meeting spot near the stage.

Festival vendors are open all day and evening, along with the food court till 10pm.

3:15 Sarasota Slim and  his raucous blues-slinging band that always begins onstage and ends up somewhere out in the crowd. 

5:00PM Doug Deming and the Jeweltones will be cooking up a wicked blend of traditional blues, West Coast and Texas swing, early rock, country and roots music.

    Beautiful day and the headliner Beautiful Bobby Blackmon was definitely the most bluesy of all.

    "Lowdown blues and good rockin boogie"

    Wei. Lol. Sat behind the group with my adopted dog Max. He loved it and everyone loved him. First outing for him in 5 weeks because he had severe injuries when I adopted him. He is almost AOK now and we loved being there! He made a lot of friends but I don't think anyone in the TBA group met him. Maybe next time. I adopted him at a TBA (somewhat) event. Great day!

    Mike, I dont know where you are going afterwards, but the Katiki (Katikisunsetbeach.com) has a group called the Backtrackblues(.com) that should be good and in keeping.... As you know, it's a fun locals place, but as I think of it, the parking is an issue.... Maybe not such a good idea for the large crowd..

    April 24, 2014

  • Mike

    I will also be there early for some of the shows and hopefully we can stake out a spot for the later crowd.

    April 24, 2014

    I am thinking bring my dog Della. She loves blues like me...;)

    April 24, 2014

    • Mari

      Super! Thanks. I was just wondering if the park is near or by the water.. :)

    p.s. quoting Mike, GLASS is not permitted. No tents, but umbrellas are fine. As shown in the schedule above, this is an all day event, so the earlier you arrive, the more comfort items you may want with you.

    For those who want to take advantage of the afternoon performances before the TBA meeting, I would suggest something comfortable to sit on, sunscreen, extra fluids for hydration and munchies. There will be vendors and they do not want coolers. A duffel with survival rations makes sense.

    Marie, the Blues Bash is being held at the TI Community Park which is behind the Walgreens on 106th and Gulf. It will be shaded with some trees, but this meeting starts end of day so the temp. should be fine.

    Tx. Mari, seriously, where can you listen to the best of Blues, w/out cover charge, across the street from the most beautiful beach on the West coat of FL?

    April 7, 2014

  • Mike

    There will be plenty of vendors, but we can bring our own drinks (beer, wine, water, etc.) and food. No glass, so bring cans, plastic or non breakable containers. They don't allow tents for shading, but umbrellas are fine.

    April 7, 2014

    • Mari

      I won't even ask if I can bring my dogs. Lol
