Blues In Baxter Iowa

Just got this from my old pal Craig Peterson from the Newton Iowa area. They have some really great blues coming to little old Baxter Iowa!! I am not sure if the South Skunk Blues Society is involved in this show, but I am sure plenty of familiar faces are behind this cool event. Check it out if you happen to be in Central Iowa this summer.

HI Tom, O'Kellys here in Baxter has got a darn good blues lineup for
Wednesday nights bike night. At least it looks pretty good to me. I myself
especially like Lil Dave Thompson and Brian Lee. But that is not to say
some of the others are not dynamite too. Just thought I would share. Sure
makes listening to the blues easy for me. I can walk to the show.

The shows are free admission on Weds evenings (bike night) and they usually
start around 6 PM. There are usually lots of bikers at O'Kellys and the bands
play outside. Great venue. Great lineup. Like everything, these could
change, I would call ahead to be sure the band that is scheduled is going on
(641) 227-3013 (weather and schedule changes may impact this, and more will
be added but don't know for sure who or when) but for what it is worth...:
