Released---2011 Blues by the Bay Line-up

Ready for some Blues???

The Fifteenth Annual Blues by the Bay line-up is here. After the loss of the longest running Blues Festival in the country, 1973-2009, (the San Francisco Blues Festival---due to production cost and a slow economy), Redwood Coast Music Festivals, (RCMF) is proud to announce the 15th presentation of Blues by the Bay. The Labor Day weekend festival will be held again adjacent to the beautiful Humboldt Bay at Halvorsen Park, Eureka, California on Labor Day weekend, September 3rd & 4th.

Our Saturday and Sunday afternoon headliners feature Tommy Castro's Rhythm & Blues Revue and Tower of Power with a power-packed line-up proceeding each of them. On Saturday morning Laurie Morvan hit’s the stage at 10:30 a.m., followed by Kaye Bohler, Deanna Bogart, and Joe Louis Walker, leading into the evening finale of Tommy Castro's Rhythm & Blues Revue, where Bogart and Walker will join Tommy on stage in a show Blues Fans will never forget. Speaking of Blues Revue, Castro is featured on this year's 20th anniversary cover that includes a plethora of current music awards sending Castro to the top of charts.

On Sunday the show starts with our own local gospel choir, The Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir at 9:30 a.m., followed by Twice as Good, Tom Rigney & Flambeau, Earl Thomas, The John Nemeth Soul Revue, leading into the legendary music of Tower of Power at 5:20 p.m.

But wait! That’s not all folks. For another special Saturday night treat, Blues by the Bay has expanded its third annual "Dance Party and Jam Session" by presenting Humboldt County’s new favorite son Shane Dwight at Blue Lake Casino . Shane Dwight’s three-hour show, (9 p.m. to midnight) at the Casino will include special guest artist from Blues by the Bay, in what promises to be a world class dance and jam session.

So get out your online and home calendars NOW, and be sure to bookmark this coming Labor Day Weekend as a Blues Festival you just can’t afford to miss. And be sure to spread the word to your friends and family where you’re going to be on Sept. 3rd and 4th---at Blues by the Bay!
