International Blues Music Day


Music fanatics rejoice, because Sacramento will be celebrating International Blues Music Day on Aug. 3. Let’s join together and celebrate the rich tradition of the classic American art form.

International Blues Music Day and the Sacramento Blues Society have collaborated to present a wonderful night of celebration. There will be outdoor entertainment, including performances by four great blues bands, including The Candye Kane Band With Laura Chavez, that will rock the Lion’s Gate Hotel outdoor stage. Proceeds from the evening will support the Sacramento Blues Society’s winning entrance to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis next January. So start lacing up those dancing shoes.
