Blues is a natural fact, is something that a fellow lives. If you don't live it you don't have it. Young people have forgotten to cry the blues. Now they talk and get lawyers and things.

- Big Bill Broonzy

We get many requests from performers who want to play at the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival.  The performers for the Blues Fest are selected each year by our Entertainment Committee.  They begin that process each year around September for the following year's festival.  Here's how to get considered to be a Blues Fest performer.

 

Promotional material and CDs may be submitted to the Mississippi Valley Blues Society Entertainment Committee at the following address:

 

Entertainment Committee
Mississippi Valley Blues Society
102 South Harrison Street, Suite 300
Davenport, IA 52801

 

You'll want to get your materials in by September 30 for the next year's festival. Contacting us in March or April requesting a slot in that year's festival is pretty much a futile effort.  Artists who have submitted materials who are not selected will be considered for the next year's fest.
