A message from the Niagara Falls Blues Festival President~

I would like to thank everyone who came to our blues festival last year and made it a success despite the inclement weather! It was great to hear so many people say they would have done a fifth day (if we had one) even with the bad weather. Hopefully we will have better luck this year.
So how do we top last year’s show? The line up, in my years of bluesing, I believe will result in a killer show. We are featuring some of the world’s best harmonica players, and the bands yet to be announced will round out the line up to make for an amazing event weekend. So make your plans to be in Niagara Falls, Sept. 11-13th!
Also, nightclubs or blues lovers that are interested in participating in  Bus Blues Cruises to the festival, please send me a message for info on how to make that work.
If you are interested in being a sponsor, also please contact us! We always could use more help to make this free festival a success.
Long Live The Blues,

Toby Rotella
