My history with the blues and brews go way back!  So you could imagine my excitement when the announcement of Blues n' Brews hit my newsfeed.

The Mississippi Valley Blues Society is responsible for some of my best memories.  The Blues Fest in Downtown Davenport is a yearly pilgrimage with friends and family to spend the weekend in LeClaire Park.  We bring the chairs, we bring the umbrellas and we bring the sunscreen and we dance.

Of course, you're aware of my obsession with craft beer.  So bringing a blues concert series to Crawford Brew Works makes me happy.  You'll be able to check out some of the best musicians alongside some of the best beer.

Two incredible arts that go really great together.

Also, the Crawford Culture of Care presents the first Guest Bartending Series event for The Mississippi Valley Blues Society’s "Blues in the Schools" programing!
Featuring dynamic musician/innovative fund-raiser Donovan Gustofson!
Live music provided by the Bruce Katz Band. Bruce is a New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee and was a member of the Gregg Allman Band from 2007 to 2013.

MVBS.org and Crawford Brew Works present the Blues 'n' Brews Concert Series & Fundraiser throughout March and April! Get the poster at mvbs.org/product/bnb-poster. All poster proceeds benefit the Blues in the Schools program.

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".

Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.

Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
