Blues News You Can Use!
 On the Road...Again!
 I was back from spring break for all
of four days...before leaving again!
This weekend I am off to Illinois visiting family, then in early May will be off again
to Florida for more family visiting.
Makes me kind of look forward to a slow summer staying home. Between my current trip and the May trip, I am also looking forward as the Ozark Blues Society annual meeting and elections next week. Please consider joining us at the Springdale Holiday Inn for the meeting. More information can be found in the newsletter article below.

 Don't miss the returning articles
this week about the return of an exciting blues music event in Eureka Springs
as well as an article honoring our past OBS President, Bob Coleman.
Always remember, this is YOUR newsletter! Please consider sharing dates that for your favorite artists that are not included in the community calendars we use. We would also love to have a local live blues music reporter to share stories for the newsletter. Many bands have time challenges in submitting information and this would be a great way for fans to show them some love! Please send questions, information, feedback, and suggestions our way. Just click on Sandy's email address below.
We appreciate our readers and want
to see your ideas included!
