Blues in The District is 13 Weeks Away and The Big Dog’s Rock is Lonely

Big Dog’s Rock in Washington Park

If anyone knows me they know I love the blues. They also know that I am a fixture at the Blues in the District concerts and sit next to what is now known as the “Big Dog’s Rock” in Washington Park. I know it is only March 18th but for the blues lovers out there the Annual Blues in the District is just 13 weeks away and the Historic Quincy Business District, the organizers for the event, has announced this year’s lineup.  

The opening act will be held on Friday, June 14th with a Kansas City Blues Band called “Trampled Under Foot” performing.  On June 28th the “Soulard Blues Band” from St. Louis will return to entertain the crowd. The Rockin’ Johnny Band  from Chicago visits Washington Park on July 12th followed by a July 26th appearance by Chicago’s Studebaker John who is no stranger to playing in Quincy.

Rockin’ Jake, a blues harmonica player, plays on August 9th with the Windy City’s Kilborn Alley playing August 23rd.  The final Blues in the District event will be a performance by female blues artist CeCe Teneal.

The concerts remain free thanks to grants and funding from the general public. All concerts are at Washington Park and are from 5:30 to 9:30pm. As far as I am concerned, thirteen weeks can’t get here soon enough. My rock is getting lonely.
