Bob's Soiree Was A Blast...

What a day… Thanks so much for joining us for Bob Keller’s 30th Anniversary Soiree.  The music was incredible… and the weather was gorgeous.  Yes, the food line extended to Haggin Oaks Golf Complex, but if we had Food Trucks every thirty feet, it still would have been packed.  As you know, this was promoter Big Mike Balma’s last Heritage Festival show.  He’s staged exciting, affordable blues concerts at various venues for the past 20 years.  There’s a reason the beer is 3 bucks…. And the giant pulled pork sandwiches will set you back five.  It’s because of Mike, who’s turned over all proceeds from these shows to help music programs in local schools.  Have we been spoiled with 10 and 20 dollar blues concerts?  Yes.  And it remains to be seen what Mike will do.  But the blues fans are not extinct, and I have a feeling Big Mike will find a way to entertain them again…. down the road. seefarky photo
