The Blues Society of the Ozarks has just announced the lineup for the 2005 Greater Ozarks Blues Festival which is to be held on September 9th and 10th. The have a great lineup this year highlighted by Buddy Guy on Saturday night! Getting a blues legend like Guy into Springfield is a major coup and trust me, you will not be dissappointed by his show.

Not only a coup, but somewhere in the neighborhood of $50k.

Or at least, that was the price quoted to play in Texas the next afternoon...

I have no idea about the financials of the deal. I was just happy to have a chance to see him. BTW Senator, I got to see a south Texas guy on Saturday night. Have you ever heard of Hamilton Loomis? He put on one hell of a show.

Name sounds vaguely familiar, but Bob Dole hasn't seen him.

If you don't get enough blues on the 9th and 10th, you can drive 8 hours south and catch Big Jack Johnson on Sunday afternoon.

Wow, now that's tempting. Will you be available as a drinking mentor?

Of course. Free lodging, even.

Still working out some minor contractual details of the show, but it's pretty close to being confirmed. There's going to be 3 or 4 hours worth of local and regional entertainment as well.
