GREELEY BLUES JAM in GREELEY, COLORADO
Another spectacular Greeley Blues Jam has come and gone, but what a Jam it was! Maybe the best ever. It is no wonder that GBJ was voted the Colorado Blues Society Members Choice Award as their Favorite Festival. Many area blues fans got their first glimpses of some amazing performers like Mr. Sipp and Larkin Poe, who were easily the crowd’s favorites. But GBJ also brought in seldom-seen-in-Colorado Roy Rogers and Watermelon Slim, and an interesting New Orleans Indian act, Cha Waa. Add in BMA recipient Shemekia Copeland and rising star Kara Grainger plus local favorites like Mojomama, Nic Clark, Taylor Scott, some amazing youth talent on the Blues 101 stage and over 20 Colorado acts at the Friday Night Pre-fest and you have a festival that has something for every type of blues fan out there. Looking forward to next year already!”
