Well It was fun while it lasted! The last Iowa Blues Showcase happened almost five years ago! It is amazing how quickly time flies. The showcase ran for almost three years 2000-2003. We put on shows at the Historical building, and at the Des Moines Area Community College. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. No one made any money during the run. In fact, we lost money, but we had a good time doing it. I really think the reason the show finally stopped, was not so much the money as the fact that the crowds had shrunk over the years. It is hard to get excited about playing a 200 seat theater, and have only 20 people in the audience. However, the music was great and you can still hear a lot of it on my internet radio station (click here).
The radio station started out great, but I am loosing listeners, so if you have forgotten where we are just click on the above link, or click on the link at the top of the blog. I would like to keep the station on the air, but if numbers don't pick up soon I may pull the plug.
