2010 Big Muddy Blues Festival – The Blog

Big Muddy Blues Festival 2010
Labor Day Weekend
Saturday, Sept. 4 and Sunday, Sept. 5, Noon to 11 p.m.
Historic Laclede’s Landing

I just wanted to take a quick moment to direct all of my readers (all 6…7…of you?) to the new blog for Big Muddy Blues Festival.

Big Muddy Blues Festival is in its 15th year at Laclede’s Landing and showcases over 30 bands locally and nationally known bands and musicians. The line-up is taking shape right now and in a few weeks the full list of performers should be available. In the meantime, we wanted to whet your blues-lovin’ appetite by announcing a few of our main stagers, including Magic Slim and the Teardrops, Roland Johnson, Moreland & Arbuckle, and others.

The event is produced annually by Laclede’s Landing Merchants Association (the organization for which I am the Communications Assistant) and is the longest-running event of its kind in the region. If you don’t already know, LLMA is the nonprofit group of Laclede’s Landing restaurants, bars and shops that focuses on preserving St. Louis’ oldest and introducing people to the historic area through its various businesses, events and sights.

The new BMBF blog will be doing semi-regular posts, updating the performer lists, announcing a few surprises (hopefully), and doing band bios/interviews. In the meantime, click over, read the first couple of posts and participate in our first Poll (“How Many Big Muddy Blues Festivals Have You Been To?”). Don’t forget to add the site (and this one!) to your blog roll too and spread the word.



  1. Most genres of music involve the listener into the realm of the completed work as it was scored. Jazz draws the onlooker to a deeper league, that of a partnership so to speak, of being along when each new phrase is created, when each inspired motive is often the interactive result of audience involvement.

  2. Jazz music is a language, sometimes intimate, often boisterous, but always layered with experience and life profoundly lived. Jazz is not found in websites or books or even written down in sheet music. It is in the act of creating the form itself, that we truly find Jazz
