Blues News You Can Use!
Not me!
Not you either? Huh? What is she talking about? Well, here I am at home...
it's Black Friday morning and I am home doing this newsletter, lol! To be honest I am glad to have an excuse to stay home! However, if you are one of the Black Friday shopping driven folks, I say have
at it! I will probably check out some
online deals later and call it a day.
Here's hoping that whether you are working, shopping, or just staying home
relaxing you are able to find the spirit of the season and enjoy.
Still some articles about upcoming events to take note of below. Be sure to take note of the "Mark Your Calendar" article below that has the first release info about our annual IBC Fundraiser held each year
at the 21c Hotel in Bentonville.
More information about times and tickets will be available next week.
  Feel I am missing an event? Just click

  And always remember, this is YOUR newsletter! Please send feedback or suggestions our way. You can reach me by email at the address below. We LOVE our readers and want to see
your ideas included!

AJ McCausland Band
to visit NWA
Northwest Arkansas is in for a treat as the Wichita based blues rock AJ McCausland
Band visits Mojo's Pints and Pies on
Saturday, December 7, 2019. Read on
for more information.
“Forget tomorrow, let’s enjoy the time we share. There’s always tomorrow but it’s no good if you’re not here. Live life for the moment and hope the consequence is fair.” 
Blues rock that lives in the moment. The AJ McCausland Band brings influences of folk, influences of jazz and tinges of reggae
into their original music. While firmly blues rock at the core, the band does not back away from where the music takes them and embraces the jam band mentality of exploration and being fully immersed in the present.
