We always like to encourage potential participants to listen to the music of those acts previously selected to get an idea of the music we've picked in the past. Click <AUDIO> for the directory of some of the music of past participants (by year) or see below. The following pictures are a montage from some of our past events and are by no means all of them - more pictures can be seen on the slide shows or in the past event descriptions opposite but the main point to make here is that this whole venture is as much about the joy of travel and meeting wonderful folks as it is about playing great music.

See below for slide shows and videos from some of our events as well as links to past events descriptions with photos and feedback, Blues Bunny reviews and links.
