2016 Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas, Nevada


I am not sure how this slipped in under my radar, but the Big Blues Bender kicks off on Las Vegas tomorrow! This event goes on through Sunday at the Plaza Hotel in downtown Vegas, and there is a stellar lineup of talent to meet all of your blues needs, all within walking distance of your hotel room.

Things kick off at 2:00PM on Thursday, and finish up at 4:30 in the morning on Monday, thanks to the hard working Mitch Woods and his late night antics. On the bill are more than enough blues heavyweights that include the likes ofMonkeyJunk, Joe Nemeth, Annika Chambers, Victor Wainwright, Bob Corritore, Bob Margolin, Brandon Santini, Anthony Gomes, The McCrary Sisters, Albert Cummings, Jarekus Singleton, Bobby Rush, Tab Benoit, and many many more.

The only problem I can see with this lineup is that there are so many good artists on the schedule (appearing on four different stages) that it would just not be possible to see them all – but what a great problem to have! This year’s show went on sale last December and it is already sold out. But keep an eye on their website ( this fall so you will be set for the 2017 event. It sounds like a real blast!

Anyway, now that I know about the Big Blues Bender, I will have to plan ahead next year to make sure that my schedule is free and that I plan far enough ahead to get a room and event tickets. It is not such a long drive to get to Las Vegas from Los Angeles!
