Remembering MMMWBS Member Brad Putnam

21 Aug

On August 8th, Society Member Brad Putnam passed away from us here on earth, and moved on to “Blues Heaven”. He will be greatly missed, and joins quite a group of past MMMWBS members, who saved him a seat for the next performance of “The Blues Heaven All-Stars….
Friends of Brad are planning on having a memorial service for Brad on Saturday, August 28 at 2:00 PM, at Unity Spiritual Life Center (325 S. 8th St. Ste. I, Quincy).
We’ll miss you Brad, but we’ll meet again…


Blues Society Meeting Thursday Night, AND Keokuk Fest This Weekend!

17 Aug

Just a reminder that the Monthly Meeting of the MMMWBS will be held this Thursday night at 7pm at the BLIND PIG, on North 12th in Quincy. We’d like to start talking about the future of the Quincy Area Blues Fest, and we’d like to have as many opinions on this as we can get from everyone, so please make plans to attend.
Also, this Friday and Saturday night is the 22nd Annual Rolling on the River Blues Fest up in Keokuk IA. It would be great to continue to show our support to the Fest that helped inspire us into holding a Blues Fest…Solid lineup! Go both nigths if you can, but if you can’t-Saturday nights a must! Living Blues Legend MAGIC SLIM & THE TEARDROPS, and also Alex Dixon, who’s the grandson of the late, and truly giant of the Blues, Willie Dixon, just to lure you in…check out the link on the LIVE EVENTS PAGE for complete lineup.
