For each ticket purchase transaction, you will receive an Event Registration Confirmed email.  This email is the ticket for yourself and guests (if you included guests in that purchase).  You will need this email on your phone or in hard copy to be admitted to the event. HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE : Guest tickets are in addition to your individual ticket.  For example if you want to purchase a ticket for you and 2 others (total of 3 tickets)  you will be purchasing one for yourself and 2 for each of your guests.  If you've previously purchased a ticket and log back in to purchase 2 more guests tickets you will purchase one for yourself and 1 for the other guest.  I know that 's weird, but that is how this system works.

Join fellow BLUES LOVERS and celebrate with our  HOLIDAY SHOW that tops 'em all. A fitting end to a great year for THE BLUES. 

Yes, you're reading this correctly

Not   ONE   , not TWO    

but THREE POWERHOUSE  band leaders in ONE GREAT SHOW.

MIKE ZITO:  One of the most lauded artists in the contemporary blues arena today and rightfully so, but for him, the thing that counts the most is maintaining his honesty, authenticity and integrity. Those are the qualities that have steered Zito’s career since the beginning and continue to define every effort he’s offered since.

“I have nothing to hide; it seems my honesty is what people relate to most,” he once told Vintage Guitar magazine. “Anders (Osborne) told me early on, ‘If you don’t believe what you’re singing, you’ll never be a good singer.’ I try not to write fluff; I try to make every word count.”

WHO'S THAT LADY: “Kat Riggins is "Not unreconstructed but not modern just for the sake of it…The spiritual granddaughter of Koko Taylor and southern blues show bands, Riggins has the stone cold knack for hitting it out of the park that would make all the blues greats before her quite proud.”- Midwest Records

Inspired by the variety and abundance of music in her parents’ collection, it makes sense that her own music is peppered with hints of R&B, soul, country, gospel, hip-hop, and rock-n-roll. Make no mistake; however, Kat Riggins is undeniably a BLUES WOMAN! She travels the world with the sole mission of keeping the blues alive and thriving through her Blues Revival Movement.

ALBERT CASTIGLIA:  Blues guitarist Albert Castiglia was born in New York on August 12, 1969. Five years later his parents moved to Miami, where Castiglia began learning guitar. By the age of 12, he began playing local gigs and did so consistently throughout high school. Following completion of his college education, Castiglia worked as a social service investigator while playing gigs at night and on weekends around South Florida. In 1990 he joined Miami Blues Authority, and was the group's lead guitarist and vocalist for over seven years. After an audition with Chicago blues harp legend Junior Wells in 1997, Castiglia become the permanent lead guitarist for Wells' Hoodoo Man's Band. Following Junior's death in 1998, the band stayed together long enough to open shows for blues belter Sandra Hall. In 2001 Castiglia began writing his own material with the help of Graham Drout, guitarist and vocalist with the Miami-based band Iko Iko.
