In lieu of our a May Society Meeting…
on Tuesday, May 8, at 5:30pm, the Cincy Blues Society will host the 2012 Cincy Blues Fest Kickoff Party (and Press Event) at The Drinkery (1150 Main St.) to announce the Main Stage and other line-ups for the 20th annual Cincy Blues Fest.
James Czar, President of the Cincy Blues Society, and Mike Wayne, Director of the Cincy Blues Fest, will announce the event’s performers, and the special theme for this year’s Friday night showcase stage.
19-year old blues prodigy Brian Keith Wallen will perform at the event. Wallen was the winner of the 2011 Cincy Blues Challenge, and represented the Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis this past February.
The Drinkery was home to the main stage at the 2012 Winter Blues Fest, and will be offering some great happy hour specials for this event. Music will start at 5:30pm, with press announcements at 6:00pm sharp. Then more music! The evening will also include other Society news and announcements, and will take the place of the monthly Cincy Blues Society meeting.
