The Grand River Blues Society and the Kitchener Blues Festival are joining forces to assist and support the newly created Blues Hall of Fame in Memphis, Tennessee. The Blues Foundation is building the Blues Hall of Fame in downtown Memphis across the street from the National Civil Rights Museum.  The Grand Opening is scheduled to take place on May 8, 2015.

Our regional fundraiser will take place at the Edelweiss Tavern in Kitchener on Saturday October 25, 2014. The doors will open at 12pm and will feature some of the best blues our region has to offer. Bands performing on the day are: Alfie Smith, Silvia Dee and The Boyfriend, Douglas Watson Band, Paul James, Conor Gains Band, Johanna Pavia and Souldrive, Matt Weidinger Band, Ginger St. James, and The Jerome Godboo Band. Tickets are $15 and available at www.ticketscene.ca, Encore Records, Orange Monkey, and the Edelweiss Tavern in Kitchener. Come out and support the blues for a very important project.
