Hot Blues and BBQ Cancelled for 2011 November 10, 2010Posted by David W. King in Uncategorized.
Due to many factors, the majority of which centered around the state of the economy, the lack of viable sponsors, and the long-term prognosis of an economic turnaround, Hot Blues and BBQ in Oxford, MI is announcing that the event has been canceled for 2011. The future of the event in later years, at this point, is undetermined.
For 6 years Hot Blues and BBQ has presented a class show featuring the very best in local, regional, and national Blues talent. “We are very proud of what we have accomplished in our 6-year history” says organizer Steve Allen. “I am in hopes that when the economy finally turns around the Hot Blues can re-invent itself and continue as a viable, family-oriented festival”. “It has been a blast to stage this event each year” said Allen.
Hot Blues and BBQ is proudest of the fact that each year the beer tent revenue has been split with local charities, adding thousands of dollars to their coffers each and every year – the true mark of a community event.
Thank you to all who have made this event the success that it has been. Keep your ears to the ground for future developments!
