JUKE JOINT IN CYBERSPACE! ....A Blues Fest you can see anytime starting 6 pm Labor Day Weekend each night - Fri., Sat., & Sun.
We are already MISSING you all..
Such a different year... my favorite part of the Festival has always been seeing everybody here having fun together ..but... we have to adapt to keep each other well... My band plays outside when we do play now, ...much safer. . . . Not very many people here in McIntosh county have died, so it would be irresponsible to invite 2000 or more people to D.C. Minner's old home place and the Festival here in Rentiesville this year.
..So sad.... BUT.....
Next Best Case Scenario...
The Show Must Go On! ...so ...
FESTIVAL with a DIFFERENCE . . . due to . . .
Magor Grant Support from the OK ARTS COUNCIL, and the H.O.P.E. Grant from OKLAHOMA HUMANITIES Council, support from FORD, Mike Kern Foundation and a few others, we have been very busy making an 18 hour Movie to bring the Festival to you over the web. recording great music, paying (!) the bands ...
- in your phone - on your computer... in your House... it will be there from now on - starting Labor Day Weekend! 30 bands, full sets. Party to it now and party to it later. New Years Eve, Your Birthday...whenever you need some Festival!

So you will be able to PARTY with the BLUES Festival - there will be three six hour segments, after all (!!) ..any time ... in your house, New Year's Eve ...on your birthday...and ...next year when we can all get together I want you all to know the NAME of every band! I am tired of hearing you all say "...all the bands are great, not a bad one in the batch...I don't know who anybody is, but they're all great..."
I know we don't get on the radio...but OK Music is so good and now we are ON the NET so we put everybody 's name on their set...enjoy!
