Sat July 13 – Cincy Blues Fest – Schmidlapp Event Lawn at Smale Riverfront Park, Cincinnati, OH
The Blues Beatles, Leroy Ellington’s Sacred Hearts, G. Miles and the Band of Helping Hands, Ben Levin with Special Guest Philip Paul, the Blues in the Schools Band and winners from the Cincy Blues Challenge (TBA).
Come out and support Blues In The Schools, the Cincy Blues Society, and the Cincy Blues Fest – music, food, drinks, and fun!
Many other local and regional bands will appear. The Festival also runs on Friday night.
Friday August 9 – Music for Melananoma – Cooper Creek Event Center
– Blue Ash, OH
This will be performances by the Cincy Blues Fest piano stage artists already booked for the festival. Unfortunately, the festival had to change venues and thus also the date, so they were unable to incorporate the piano stage artists as usual. But fear not, they’re still coming to Cincinnati!
Lineup: Ricky Nye and fellow pianists Jean-Pierre Bertrand, Bob Seeley, Josh Paxton, Ben Toury, Henri Herbert, Anthony Geraci plus George Bedard (guitar), Chris Douglas (upright bass) & Paul Ellis (drums)
The event supports the very worthy Melanoma Know More organization to prevent deadly melanoma skin cancer.
Saturday, August 10 – Victor Wainwright – Band of Helping Hands, 3831 Decoursey Ave, Covington, KY
This Grammy-nominated piano-based artist is an alumni of the Cincy Blues Fest. The show runs from 7 PM – 9 PM.
