Detroit Blues Society to Host Fundraiser on May 25th

Detroit Blues Society announces that due to declining economic conditions in the Metro Detroit area, they will be hosting a fundraiser to help bolster their coffers and to help them achieve their membership goals for 2008. This fundraiser will help, in large measure, to allow them in the continuing efforts toward presenting their unique musical programming to the masses. The aforementioned programming is entirely based around Blues Education and encompasses live performances, teaching, history, and the promotion of this uniquely American art form here in Detroit.

The upcoming fundraiser will be held on Sunday May 25, 2008, from 6pm to 12am, at Callahan's Blues Bistro at 2105 South Blvd. In Auburn Hills, Michigan. Callahan's owner Mike Moss is happy to host the event on Memorial Day weekend and hopes that it is a success. According to Moss,"Blues is the greatest style of music out there and no one promotes it like the Detroit Blues Society. We are happy to help out."

Admission is just $10 (tax deductible) per person and the evening's events will include silent auction items, raffles, drawings, and a musically charged event featuring:

THE CARL CABALLERO BAND
STONEY MAZAR AND THE WESTSIDERS
THE CHRISTY HOWARD BAND
THE ALLIGATORS
2007 Detroit Blues Challenge Winners - THE FRONT STREET BLUES BAND

Detroit Blues Society is now accepting sponsors and those wishing to contribute auction items for this exciting event.
