Upcoming Blues Society Events in March 2016

18 Feb

The MMMWBS will be sponsoring a “Blues in the Schools” event, providing an artist for Showcase of Excellence on March 12, 2016 at QHS.

Later that night we will have a concert featuring “The Beat Daddys” at The State Room (434 S. 8th St.-just North of 8th & State St) in Quincy, IL. Show Time will be from 8pm-Midnight, with doors opening around 7:30pm. Admission will be free will donation. Details will be determined as the date approaches and we’ll keep you posted.

The Beat Daddys are a band that hasn’t been in the area for several years now, and Larry Grisham and the band look forward to being back in Quincy! They recorded their CD “Live At The Quincy Blues Fest-2007” during their performance in Washington Park, at the old Quincy Area Blues Fest. And-if you don’t have a copy of it, it has become a rare item-but a great CD, with a real fine performance of a great night of Blues in the Park!
