Alright, so we’re rolling into the Fall after a fantastic summer filled with all sorts of great blues music. But there’s no reason to stop going out to see blues music because the weather may be changing. In fact, it should be even more in mind. And living here in the Pacific Northwest, our own little blues mecca, we can certainly catch superb blues musicians just about every night of the week if we’d like. As usual, the best way to start each month off is with your friends down at The Melody Ballroom for the Cascade Blues Association’s General Membership Meeting.
