Its not all about the Blues! We’re serving up the Brews, too!

To complement the blues and brews, your palette will be delighted with our line-up of regionally sourced cuisine crafted from local food trucks. The festival is located outdoors in The Meadow at O Space. *Rain or shine, the show goes on! Leave the kids (and dogs) at home (21+ crowd), bring your picnic blanket or low folding chair AND dont forget your dancing shoes! NO outside alcohol please.

Headlining the show is world-renowned guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya. The old Willie Dixon adage, blues is truth, perfectly describes Cocos searing, contemporary blues-rock. Taught by the ‘Master of the Telecaster’, Albert Collins, and schooled by a decade on the road with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Montoya mixes his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals with memorable songs, delivering the blues’ hardest truths. Guitar Player says Montoya plays stunning, powerhouse blues with a searing tone, emotional soloing, and energetic, unforced vocals. Montoya’s voice is as expressive as his guitar. Stratocaster-fueled, fierce slash-and-burn guitar riffs with smoldering Southern soul-rooted intensity.

Taking the 2016 Best of the Blues Award for the Slide Blues Guitar, Nick Vigarino ‘radiates an unpredictable fervor with slashing slide guitar, powerful vocals, funky licks, modern lyrics and his slop jar delta funk blues. His style elevates the blues to a place where the roots are respected, yet nudged towards the future. He consistently captures, then rivets listeners with precise, passionate performances,’ Jefferson Magazine (Sweden).
