This event combines three of the region's best blues players and their bands, turning the evening into an Oktoberfest that will celebrate blues and brews in top-notch style. Lederhosen optional.
Jack Hadley had been playing the blues since childhood, is a board member of the Colorado Blues Society and has been invited to perform at blues festivals as far away as Rauma, Finland.
Jeremy Vasquez and the 11 Mile Band have recently been voted finalists in the Pikes Peak Blues Community's local competition. They vie for a spot to be sent to represent the Colorado Springs area in the International Blues Challenge to be held in Memphis, Tenn., in January.
Jake Loggins Band has a strong and loyal fan base in Colorado Springs, which consistently votes Jake as the best blues guitarist in town. He fills the house wherever and whenever he plays. Jake's performances are never the same twice - except in the category of over-the-top quality.
