I thought I'd share this e-mail with you from the good folks at Blues Revue and Blueswax.
Thanks for taking the time to read this email from your friends at Blues Revue and BluesWax.
This is just a quick reminder that The Blues Foundation's premier event, The Blues Music Awards is Thursday May 6, 2010, at the Cook Convention Center in beautiful downtown Memphis, Tennessee. It will be simulcast on Sirius XM Radio by the Program Director of B.B. King's Bluesville, Mr. Bill Wax, at Exit 74, on the XM Highway.
Of course, The Blues Revue and BluesWax writers, photographers and staff will be in attendance to report on the year's greatest night of Blues. We just wanted to let you know that you won't have to wait for our coverage because Bill Wax has simulcast this event the last several years, so if your unable to attend in person joins us via Sirius XM satellite starting at 8 p.m. EST.
It's sure to be a blast, as it is the largest gathering of blues performers in one place on the same night every year. There will be over 30 live performances and Bill Wax's show will cover's it all.
