All-Star Blues Bash

  • The Bash: a one-night celebration of blues music headlined by some of the genre’s most-decorated artists
  • The Blues: all flavors of the music, from soulful to rockin’ to genuine Chicago-style
  • The All-Stars: pulled from the top of the charts of yesterday and today, including Bobby Rush, Joe Louis Walker, and Wayne Baker Brooks
  • Bobby Rush: The show’s headliner, Rush joined the Chicago blues circuit in the 1950s alongside the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. He’s topped the charts several times, including with his first hit “Chicken Heads” in 1971, and in 2015, he was inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Music Hall of Fame.
  • Joe Louis Walker: Two words sum up Joe Louis Walker’s career: prolific and innovative. He released his debut album, Cold Is The Night, in 1986, and he’s been pushing the genre forward ever since. In 2015, he dropped his 25th album, Everybody Wants a Piece.
  • Wayne Baker Brooks & Shawn Holt: Both sons of legendary blues musicians, Brooks and Holt have had no trouble carving out their own stellar reputations. Wayne is renowned for his seemingly bottomless well of creativity, and Holt is one of the genre’s rising stars, having recently won two “Best New Artist” awards from Blues Blast Magazine.

Kalamazoo State Theatre

"Save the State": that was the rallying cry in Kalamazoo in 1982, as local arts groups and city officials spearheaded efforts to save the historic Kalamazoo State Theatre from demolition. And it was more than just a building the community sought to save. Since it first illuminated its marquee in 1927, the State Theatre had hosted countless vaudeville acts, operas, big bands, and bands with tiny drums, and had served as a cultural fixture for the city. Fortunately, the campaign worked. The venue was purchased in 1985, and after undergoing renovations, the State Theatre once again began housing entertainment ranging from rock concerts to live comedy for the citizens of Kalamazoo.
