Deep Blues Festival @Beachland Ballroom 7.16 5PM

The Beachland Ballroom
presents the Deep Blues Festival, Saturday July 16th featuring: Left Lane Cruiser * Scissormen * Ten Foot Polecats * Mark Pork Chop Holder * Molly Gene One Whoaman Band * Cashman * Javier & The Innocent Sons * Misery Jackals * Mississippi Gabe Carter * Old Gray Mule featuring CW Ayon * Boom Chick

The Deep Blues Festival was started in 2007 outside of Minneapolis by Chris Johnson, a fan of dirty blues based and influenced music of all kinds. He based its name on a term coined by the late, great musicologist Robert Palmer, who used the phrase “Deep Blues” to describe the gritty, artful sound of music rooted in the Mississippi Delta and hill country — both electric and acoustic blues that bridges the traditional and the modern. We are putting a second stage in the ballroom so it will non-stop music all night.

Ballroom 5PM $20
