For the past 15 years, the Delta Blues Festival has provided the residents of Antioch and the surrounding communities a great day of family entertainment downtown at Waldie Plaza. All of this has been done for FREE - due to the generous support of Corporate & Local Sponsors, and hard work of the volunteers. Festival organizer Frank Giovanni is determined to continue the tradition of the DBF and to keep it free to the public.
In 2010, El Campanil Theatre presented the first Delta Blues Benefit Concert, with great acceptance and great attendance. Since then, many of you have asked for more and we've made it an annual event.
The DBF appreciates your attendance and support of the festival and we proudly present our Benefit Concert series. All profits will help fund the next festival, continuing the make the DBF a FREE annual event for all who attend.
On March 1st, 2014 it will be a great night of blues. We will showcase local blues talent, some professional new-to-the-scene, and some established national blues performers that will have you stompin' your feet, clapping your hands - maybe even after you leave the show!
The 2014 line up in no particular order:
Chris Cain- Prominent, prolific and passionate blues legend The Cash Box Kings with special guest Steve Freund - Direct from Chicago, Blind Pig recording artists. Frankie G & the Conviction - Local, high energy blues band, featuring Kathy Tejcka, Mac Akin & D'Mar
And more to come!
What better way to help support the festival you know and love than by attending a great evening of blues in your home town!
You can help keep the Delta Blues Festival free by attending this special benefit concert.... and please bring your friends.
Proceeds from this special benefit concert will ensure that the Delta Blues Festival will continue as planned for September 2014.
