Blues & Brews South Pearl Street

What happens when you mix a warm summer afternoon, ice-cold draft beer, and some fun, funky music? You get the South Pearl Street Music Festivals. Inaugurated in 2007, the brainchild of a South Pearl Street merchant, the first Blues & Brews debuted on August 11th on the 1200 block of South Pearl Street.
The street was closed and featured a stage at the northern end of the block and farmers market vendors, craft beer brewers, and some local blues bands rocked into the night. Hoping to attract 1,000 people and not to lose too much money, the event was a huge success with more than 5,000 people on the street and–like any great party–a last minute beer run! The first year’s success encouraged the merchants to add a second event, dubbed BrewGrass.
Entering its sixth year, the music festivals have become a neighborhood tradition and a real shindig. The question remains–is it a music festival with really good beer or a beer festival with really good music?

    Since there doesn't seem to be a central meeting place and time, I've made other plans to attend. Should be a good time.

  • Darlene C.

    Sounds like a lot of fun but still too early to plan for.

    Is anyone interested in going to the Winter Park Jazz Festival on July 21, 2013? Dave Koz, Mindy Abair, Richard Elliott and Gerald Albright are touring together for their summer horns pazazz. Wow, I've seen Dave Koz and Mindy Abair in person and they are great.
    Any takers?

    Here is the fantastic line-up for that day:
    BLUES & BREWS ON OLD SOUTH PEARL STREET
    Denver (Old South Pearl St) August 10,[masked] - 10 PM
    Lineup: Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials, Mac Arnold & Plate Full o' Blues, Dan Treanor's Afrosippi Band featuring Erica Brown, Delta Sonics with Ken Saydak, Johnny Long Band, Jockamo featuring Jill Watkins, and Bad Brad & the Fat Cats.

    I got this information off of the Colorado Blues Society (CBS) Website of which I am a member. The CBS is a great organization which promotes blues. The website has lot's of information about all kinds of things going on in the Denver Metro Area and Colorado regarding blues. I thought I would share the website here:

    http://www.coblues.org/fr_home.cfm

    Incidently, CBS always has a booth set up at the festival with info., buttons, hats, shirts, etc. Check 'em out while you're there!

    Hope to see some of you there!
