The award winning non-profit music appreciation group The CASCADE BLUES ASSOCIATION will be the Beneficiary of this 'Once in a Lifetime All Star Performance' at the Crystal Ballroom.
2017 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Cascade Blues Association, and in honor of that anniversary over 50 Blues and Roots musicians from the Pacific Northwest will join together to help the CBA replenish its General Operations Fund, which has dropped to a dangerously low level.
It's only fitting that the CBA will be getting financial relief from Musicians and the Blues Community fan base it has supported and nurtured for 30 years.
Oregon Music Hall of Fame Inductees participating in this event include DUFFY BISHOP, LLOYD JONES, NORMAN SYLVESTER, TERRY ROBB, BOBBY TORRES and BILL RHOADES. Many of the musicians performing are CBA Muddy Awar Winners or members of the CBA's 'Muddy Award Hall of Fame'.
9 Headline acts will perform in medium-length segments over the course of the evening (4pm - 9pm), with a number of Guest Stars popping in and out of the lineup as well.
