BISBEE BLUES FESTIVAL

www.bisbeebluesfoundation.com

September 12 - 14, 2014 at City Park in Brewery Gulch, Spetember 13th from 11 AM - 10 PM.

   

 KBRP COMMUNITY MEDIA PRESENTS THE 10th ANNUAL BISBEE BLUES FESTIVAL

KBRP Community Media is proud to present the 10th Annual Bisbee Blues Festival and Bisbee Blues Village
over the weekend of September 12-14, 2014. The Blues Festival Main Event will take place at City Park in Old
Bisbee on Saturday, September 13th from 11 AM to 10 PM. The festival is also supporting and helping to
organize musical performances at Bisbee venues on Friday, September 12th.

KBRP has secured 7 bands to perform at the festival including headliner Zak Harmon, Bob Corritore and Dave
Riley, CW Ayon, The Sugar Thieves, Cat Daddy and the 12 Barz Blues Band, Train Wreck, and Buzz and the Soul
Senders.
This mixture of local and traveling performers will highlight the music community here in Bisbee and
allow for attendees to see prominent national performers.

“We were fortunate that former Bisbee Chamber Director Chrissy Alonso was willing to provide logistical
support and a group of local citizens stepped forward to help move the planning of the festival forward. There
are approximately 14 people involved in the festival planning group, who have been charged with different
areas of operation to make this year’s 10th anniversary a success,” commented Ryan J. Bruce, KBRP’s Executive
Director.

This year, along with the Friday and Saturday blues performance schedule, KBRP has created a new free event
called Blues Village to take place at Central School Project on Sunday, September 14th from 9-2 PM. The Blues
Village will include activities for families and feature workshops on singing, song-writing, instrument-making,
and recording. The event will also include an exhibit entitled, “What Came Before: 10 Years of the Bisbee
Blues Festival,” which will feature art and photographs from previous festivals. Live performances will happen
throughout the day and non-profit vendors will be on-hand providing food and beverage.

“KBRP has always been interested in helping to organize the Bisbee Blues Festival. Over the last month, KBRP
became the main organizer and sponsor of the event, which is one of the reasons we have added an arts and
educational element to the festival,” Bruce said.

To support these endeavors KBRP has created the Bisbee Blues Foundation for the long-term home of the
festival. The station’s vision includes continuing to support a multiple venue, live performance festival along
with this new educational and arts component.

“We want to support the community that has welcomed performers and attendees into our town. Our hope
is to provide a more grassroots feel to the festival and give back to the artists and educators that have made
this town great, perhaps co-oping some of the original vision created by the Bisbee Arts Commission ten years
ago,” stated Bruce.


The new Bisbee Blues Festival website (http://www.bisbeebluesfoundation.com) will launch this Friday, July
25th with a good deal of festival information. Tickets will go on-sale that day as well. Advance tickets will be
available on the website for $20, which includes all Saturday and Sunday events. Day-of tickets will be $25. In
Bisbee, tickets will also be available at High Desert Market and Bisbee Office Supply. Tickets will also be
available at select retailers in Tucson and Phoenix.

“We are working on developing a few events in the next couple of weeks that will feature an opportunity for
folks to come out and purchase tickets directly from the station and get to provide us feedback about what
they would like to see with a homegrown Blues Festival. It is an exciting prospect to take this on, so we are
open to all ideas and suggestions from the community to make this an event that everyone wants to take part
in and celebrate,” commented Bruce.

While the festival is still seeking additional sponsorship for the weekend’s activities, a number of sponsors
have already made commitments including Southern Arizona Distributors, Freeport McMoRan, Cable One, The
Bisbee Grand, Bisbee Airpark, and Tensile Shade Products. In addition, media sponsorship has been provided
by Wick Communications and Cherry Creek Radio.

KBRP is a 501c3 non-profit organization created in 1997 by a small group of Bisbee residents and has been
broadcasting for 9 years on 96.1 FM and online at http://www.kbpradio.com. The station provides a program
schedule that features blues, jazz, world, folk, country, rock, and independent music that is supported by
volunteer programmers and listener’s membership support.

Additional information is available through KBRP Executive Director Ryan J. Bruce at 520-227-6547 or by email at
