As everybody knows, the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival is the biggest blues event of the year in Portland happening annually over the 4th of July weekend. So every year I am asked when the Cascade Blues Association’s general membership meeting will occur? Here is my rule of thumb. If the festival is a five day event, meaning it runs during the first Wednesday in July, then we move the meeting to the second Wednesday. If it starts on a Thursday, then the meeting is held that first week. We do so to offer an opportunity to those coming into Portland for the Waterfront to get a taste of the organization and a little more focus on some of the wonderful performers who reside in our area. And I routinely try to schedule a strong line-up for this meeting. This month is no exception.
