The 2014 Blues & Seafood Festival
Thanks to all of you for making last year a Sell Out! To accommodate the increased demand we have added two new acts and plenty more space for everyone.
This year’s line up is looking great. We are really excited to have Billy D and The HooDoos open up the festival on Friday night. Billy’s Chicago South Side swagger and sprinkle should have everyone swinging. Lisa Mann and Her Really Good Band are up next. And when Lisa says “Really Good Band”, she’s not fooling. Then, all the way from the East Coast, we’re proud to present, the extraordinary Albert Cummings.
Saturday kicks off with Blind Wolf. These guys can really tear it up. Steve Williams and the crew have been a huge hit for us in the past and we are very excited to hear the new lineup. Then there’s our very own North Coast Blues and the Cadillac Horns. Up next is Franco Paletta and the Stingers, whose dynamic harp style and unique vocals has made him one of Portland’s favorite Blues personalities. The original NW Boogie Cat, Norman Sylvester, is back by popular demand and promises to have everyone up & dancing. Finally, we are thrilled to present this year’s headliner, the Heartbreakers, featuring a terrific line up of the Northwest’s premier female blues singers, Lucy Hammond, Lady A, Lady Kat “True Blue” and Mary McPage. This is a show you just can’t miss.
The Food Court is expanding as well, with lots more delights from Peninsula Seafood providers. And, of course, there will be Micro Brews and Regional Wines.
Once again, we are working with our friends at Jazz & Oysters on Sunday August 17th, just up the road in beautiful and historic Nahcotta. An incredible bargain for two days of outstanding music and fun!
