Blues Schedule July 20 – 26

This Week’s Blues.

The blues schedule is as up to date as possible, but it’s always a good idea to call the club to confirm.

 You may want to check out on Saturday where The Tom Sanders Band is taking part in a Wounded Warrior Benefit at City Limits Cafe in Waterbury.  It will be a full day of music with bands of all kinds.  The Wounded Warrior Project is working to “to honor and empower wounded warriors.”  It is like 13 hours long with refreshments on hand.  The Wounded Warior Project does a lot of good work.
