The blues is alive and well in the Quad Cities!  That is for sure.

With the Mississippi Valley Blues Fest coming up on September 16th and 17th at the LeClaire Park bandshell in Davenport and the series of Blues & Brews concerts at Crawford Brew Works, you can tell that people still love the blues.

Now here's an announcement that will make anyone who has attended the beloved Blues Festival jump for joy.

Joe Bonamassa Returns to the Quad Cities!

Three-time GRAMMY-nominated artist, Joe Bonamassa, comes back to the Adler Theatre on Wednesday, November 09, 2022 at 8:00 p.m as we celebrate his 25th No. 1 album on the Billboard Blues Chart, Time Clocks.

The Living Legend That is Joe Bonamassa

Let's not forget what an innovator Joe is.  During the Covid-19 lockdown, Joe started the Fueling Musicians program which was a relief plan of sorts for touring musicians who could no longer make a living.  It provided cash payments for essential living expenses of $1,500.

Then he put on a live streaming show across 44 countries worldwide for a phenomenal live music presentation of his album “Royal Tea” before it was even released. The concert was re-mixed and mastered for physical release as “Now Serving: Royal Tea Live From The Ryman”. Visit jbonamassa.com to get a taste of what you'll see live and in person at The Adler Theatre.
