Blues News You Can Use!
That Time of Year
Everything is bathed in green....Graduates are walking for diplomas (yes, personal experience this year with a FHS 2015 grad in my family last night)....more and more motorcycles out and about....and of course live music lovers know all these things as the signal of the start of patio season! It's the season where it becomes easy to find one or more of your favorite bands playing at the numerous venues all around Northwest Arkansas all on a pleasant, warm, outdoor, grab another beer kind of night. So what to do? I suggest you keep a watch on our newsletter and our e-news calendar and enjoy the season!
As always, please feel to drop me a note about what you like, don't like, and what you think of the Newsletter.  You know the deal, e-mail me anytime at smccann7@sbcglobal.net  ~Sandy McCann

RIP Mr. B. B King
September 16, 1925 - May 14, 2015

This Sunday beginning at 1pm at Jose's Streetside in Fayetteville is the place to gather to honor Northwest Arkansas's beloved music fan, Jon Kirk Edwards.  As most of you know Jon lost his fight against medical problems a couple weeks ago.
