19th Annual Brisbane Blues Festival @ Tempo Hotel – May 14, 2011 [Event News]

What started as an annual gathering of local blues fans has now turned into one of our River City’s most eagerly awaited musical events. Each year hard-core fans as well as a surprising number of people new to the blues attend the festival. They all come along to enjoy a day of music that can touch your soul as well as make your body move.

This year the festival has found a new home at The Tempo Hotel in Fortitude Valley and its ideal location in the heart of the Valley’s Entertainment Precinct as well as its close proximity to large amounts of free public parking, busses, trains, taxies and planes make it a perfect choice. The hotel formerly known as Bar 388 and Dooleys has a great musical tradition and this event will help add to that legacy.

The event’s two stage format will continue with the Main Stage area featuring some of Brisbane’s best blues bands laying it down while the Downstairs Stage will feature superb solo artists.

Doors open at 2:00PM

All day admission is only $25 and tickets will be available at the door on the day.

This year featuring: The Dillion James Band, Johnny Hucker, Mason Rack Band, Tim Gaze, Mick Hadley & The Atomic Boogie Band, The Asa Broomhall Band, The Mojo Webb Band and Blind Lemon.
