Goal 800

Goal 800 

What that means our goal is to sell at least 800 advanced tickets for the FOB festival between now and June 1st.  Can we do it?  I don't know but you can help.  Go to our  Field of Blues Festival Web Site.  and purchase tickets on line or send a check for tickets and a SASE to 1043 Kingsway Lane, Byron, IL 61010 to buy tickets on line or by mail.

You can also stop by the Adriatic  Live Music Bar on W Jefferson Street or Kryptonite on W State Street to buy tickets in Rockford.  CD Source on East State also has tickets available now as do many Crossroads members.

Tickets will also be available at the Aviators Box Office and other locations that will soon be announced.

$10 advanced seats. What a deal!

Mark Hummel Joins Westside Andy at the Hody March 21st

 Westside Andy will be joined by West Coast harp master and road warrior Mark Hummel at the Thursday show at the Hody Bar and Grill in Middleton WI.

Andy and his bands have been a fixture there at the Hody on Thursday nights and I know that Mark Hummel and he will put on virtuoso harmonica show together. They are also appearing with Billy Flynn on guitar. This should be a great night of blues! The show starts at 9 PM. Bar doors open at 8 AM (it is Wisconsin, after all) so you can go early (even breakfast) and get a good seat.

 Andy is excited about the show and I know it's going to be great as both he and Hummel are fantastic harp players.

It should be a lot of fun. Mark does not get out to the Midwest too often. He's got a couple of nights up in Minnesota after this and his calendar shows nothing nearby for the remainder of the year. Take advantage of this opportunity!
