First Annual Real Blues Festival of Orange County?
Today we got a press release for the First Annual Real Blues Festival of Orange County, with the tagline "No Rock, No Bull, Just BLUES!"
Organizer Papa J said in a statement: "In my opinion most large blues festivals are over priced and in many cases, you don't get 'real blues...I guess a recent festival in Orange County couldn't find enough blues acts...so just to draw in people, Crosby, Stills & Nash were added to the bill."
Hear that, Doheny Blues Festival? They're calling you out! Papa J is also a musician who organized and produced a "Chicago Blues Night" at House of Blues/Anaheim last spring. The festival is also set up for a good cause--25 percent of proceeds go to Saint Joseph's Hospital Of Orange For Cancer Prevention & Treatment Center.
First Annual Real Blues Festival of Orange County will be held on Sunday, October 3rd, 2010 at the Olde Ship British Pub & Restaurant, 1120 W. 17th St., Santa Ana, 2 p.m.-10 p.m. Admission: $15 (children under 10 free). Info: (714) 328-9375 or (714) 550-6700. Tickets available at both Olde Ship locations (Santa Ana, Fullerton) and at the participating band's websites.
