On June 10, one of Colorado’s most anticipated music events will kick off. The Greeley Blues Jam is a nationally recognized blues festival held every year at Island Grove Arena in Greeley, Colorado.
The Greeley Chamber of Commerce and the City of Greeley host the event, laying down 45,000 square feet of fresh green sod on the arena floor creating the perfect dance floor for bare feet of all ages. One of my twitter buddies said this is, “the best dance floor in the world,” and she should know, her husband plays in two Colorado bands.
The weekend kicks off on Friday, June 10, with free music at 9th Street Plaza and other venues in downtown Greeley, including restaurants and bars. Blues talent from around Colorado will be showcased from 11:30 a.m. until the late hours of the evening.
The Main Stage Greeley Blues Jam headliners on Saturday, June 11, at Island Grove include Robert Randolph and the Family Band, the North Mississippi Allstars Duo, Coco Montoya, Trampled Underfoot, The Nighthawks and Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers.
The Back Stage line up includes Erica Brown, the Otone Brass Band, Big Jim Adam, John Stilwagen, and Another Kind of Magick.
The Greeley Blues Jam is a festival for the entire family and shouldn’t be missed. Get all the information on the event at their website: www.greeleybluesfest.com.
