Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from us here at Quincyblues.com!

20 Dec

All of us on the Board of Directors of the Mid-Mississippi Muddy Water Blues Society would like to wish everyone who follows our little website all the best wishes for this holiday season. It’s been quite a year, and though we have canceled the 2010 Quincy Area Blues Fest-we still have many reasons to rejoice. The presence of “The Blues” have never been stronger in our community, and we will continue to keep everyone informed of all upcoming events on our Calendar Page.

Also, in the “Spirit of the Season”, we are making a $500.00 donation to the Quincy Madonna House, which helps area women in need. They have been in dire straights recently, and we felt compelled to help them out. (We’ve helped them out in the past also-as a recipient of our first “Can Jam”). If you would like to learn more about Madonna House, and can help them, here is their website: http://www.madonnahouse.net/ May your Christmas NOT BE BLUE–but if it is-“LET THE BLUES PICK YOU UP!”

Thanks for another great "Can Jam!"

We here at the MMMWBS would like to thank all the folks that helped out at this year’s “Can Jam”. Thanks to the folks at Turner Hall for having us (truly a great venue for music), of course-THE BANDS-THE FUNIONS, THE CHEESEBURGERS, AND RAISED ON RADIO! You all did a great job, and we were very well entertained throughout the afternoon. We also want to thank all the businesses who donated goods and services, the Volunteers-who make it all happen! and of course-all the folks who gave up a beautiful Sunday afternoon-to help out a good cause! We ended up collecting a big table full of canned goods, and we also handed over $200 to The Bethel A.M.E. Church’s Food Pantry-and they were very excited about this event. They thanked us for giving them this blessing, ad we were happy to do so. This event is for our Community-we do it as a way to give something back. And we look forward to doing this every year, and we look forward to the “Can Jam” every year! Thanks again everyone!
