The lineup for the 22nd annual Santa Cruz Blues Festival has been announced – and as usual, it brings an amazing amount of talent to our little town! This year, the festival is being headlined by Gregg Allman (of Allman Brothers fame) and Chris Isaak. The Sunday show also features musical virtuoso Jackie Greene, a rising star on the Jam Band circuit and an absolutely phenomenal talent at guitar, harmonica, and keyboard. Jackie is a son of the Monterey Bay area, having been born and raised in Salinas.
The festival dates are May 24th and 25th, and tickets are available on-line through the web site, but can also be purchased at Moe’s Alley and Streelight Records.
The Santa Cruz Blues Festival is one of those yearly events that make Aptos truly special. Plan to come early and stay late – they serve a wide range of food and beer. Bring the family and a set of lawn chairs and prepared to be amazed.
