What we're about



Smokin' hot, fresh served, electric wound, dirty gritty blues music. 



Frothy, fresh, home grown craft beer from Southern Indiana's finest microbrews. 



Kentuckiana's best BBQ artists, lined up and competing for your taste buds. Nothing better than a heaping platter of BBQ to go with tasty blues licks. 

Our Mission

Our Heritage

Our passion is to bring people together to share and experience America’s original music; blues, jazz, and rhythm and blues. Pair this with local BBQ and craft beer providers and you have a winning event.

Our Talent

Local and National acts experienced in these styles of music, along with Southern Indiana buisness, will be our featured talent.

Our Locals

We want to stress the importance that this will be a homegrown, grassroots event, locally owned and operated, where everyone is welcome to volunteer and attend.
