The one thing the blues don't get is the backing and pushing of TV and radio like a lot of this garbage you hears. They choke stuff down people's throat so they got no choice but to listen to it.

- John L. Hooker

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.
