Here’s What People Are Saying

My favorite moment was watching the white doves circle the event. A magical moment for sure. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.

I love this event and I love the blues.  The lineup is always stellar and the venue can’t be beat.  We have attended every year and plan to continue.  It is also a great way to give back to the community and support the organizations here that help make our area the best!  We are so fortunate to have the arts, music, culture, education and a growing urban core here in Bradenton.  Our Riverwalk is great and I can’t wait to see more and better housing options downtown which and the gap bridged between downtown and VOTA. I love it!

“The talent of the musicians is phenomenal! I like that you keep it strictly Blues with some variation within that genre. Both years I discovered artists I was not aware of and loved every minute of it.

I am also impressed by how amazingly organized this festival is! The ‘luxury’ bathrooms are a great asset, the staff and volunteers were helpful, the food selection was great and had no trouble finding anything. The venue- on the river is fantastic. The price is amazing for this type of festival. THE best value for the money of any concert I have ever been to.

The little things are big- that you used local businesses for your food vendors, that you never once ran out of toilet paper or paper towels, that I never once had to hold my nose and go into a stinky bathroom.

Really, I just cannot say enough about this festival. Supremely superb job!!”

I feel so lucky to live in Bradenton and have the luxury of attending this festival!  The music was exceptional, the weather was just right and the price was reasonable.  My husband and I have been attending each year as we both love the blues and I can’t wait for next year!
