Alabama Blues Project

This event is a celebration of music; it allows the community to come together to enjoy great Blues music. The proceeds will help benefit the Alabama Blues Project; a non-profit organization created to provide classes and teach children (ages 6-18) music and blues. Music is an art that not everyone has the chance to indulge in, so take advantage and appreciate. Major sponsors such as Krispy Kreme or Renassant Bank contribute to make this event happen every year. Come see what Blues Weekend is all about while also supporting a great cause.
