Due to COVID-19, this year’s event has been canceled
(Fall Blues Experience)
Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 3 PM – 9 PM
4290 Dry Ridge Rd, Cincinnati 45252
This year the Cincy Blues Society is presenting a brand new event on a new date and at a new venue, in order to bring more local blues artists to the stage where blues fans can enjoy the pride and passion that these musicians bring to their performances.
The new event is Blueserlebnis, German for “Blues Adventure”. Any new event is an adventure and we’re going to make this fun and exciting for the bands, the venue, and most importantly for the blues fans.
The date is September 28, a little out of the dog days of summer. But still the weather should not be too cold. You can dress accordingly and still enjoy yourself. Not too cold, not too hot, it’s just right.
The new venue is the Cincinnati Donauschwaben Society. 4290 Dry Ridge Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45252. Donauschwaben is similar to the Germania Society where we’ve had the Blues Challenge for years. At Donauschwaben, there are two stages that will have continuous music from 3:00-9:00. It’s in the same part of town as Germania Park, but a little closer to I-275 at the Colerain Avenue exit.
The blues artists that will be performing here will be some acts selected from the Cincy Blues Challenge with a few extras added in for more adventure.
3:00 – Tempted Souls Band, a mainstay of the local blues scene for years
4:40 – the Keith Little Band, a legacy of the Cincy Blues scene led by the Cincinnati Blues Man.
6:00 – King Bee and the Stingers, two time International Blues Challenge (IBC) semi-finalists from Bloomington, Indiana.
7:35 – the Noah Wotherspoon Band, three time IBC finalist, and winner of the Blues Guitarist of the year award at the 2016 IBC
3:15 – Jimmy D Rogers This years’ solo act representing the Dayton Blues Society at the IBC. This is Jimmy’s 4th trip to the IBC, an entertainment veteran and a legendary blues performer.
4:45 – Misterman and the Mojo Band, a multi-faceted, high energy act that’s true to the blues.
6:15 – Fred Gillespie and the Swamp Bees, the big sound of blues from Middletown.
7:45 – Ralph and the Rhythm Hounds, 2nd place at the Cincinnati challenge and 1st place in Dayton. Explosive modern blues.
For $15 per person you’ll get blues from eight different acts, there’s free parking, there will be a couple food trucks, and the folks at Donauschwaben will keep you from getting thirsty.
We hope a bunch of blues fans will come out to enjoy this new adventure. We hope there will be a bunch of newcomers that are excited by the blues, and we hope this crew of musicians will put their heart and soul into their performances.
