The B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center extends a once in a lifetime opportunity to all blues artists interested in opening for B.B. King in his final homecoming performance in Indianola, Mississippi on May 25th, 2014. Since my last post, I’ve received several calls from individual performers and bands that are very much interested in expressing their gratitude by donating their talent in kind to the blues Icon.
This year’s event is free to the public and takes place outdoors on the lawn at the B.B. King Museum. As always, there will be an impressive stage and sound system. Opening acts will perform throughout the afternoon. And the evening will close with the Ambassador of the Blues, Mr. B.B. King. If you haven’t witnessed B.B. King’s storytelling accompanied by the sweet chimes of Lucille, I highly suggest making plans to attend. There will be plenty going on the entire Memorial Day weekend in Indianola.
B.B. King’s management cites age as a factor to this last homecoming performance. As a fan and blues enthusiast, I strongly suggest your attendance on May 25th. You may never have this opportunity to witness B.B. King in his hometown setting again.
To all musicians, the B.B. King Museum extends the opportunity to open for B.B. King in his hometown farewell performance. Any individual artists and/or bands interested in donating their talent for this event, please feel free to contact me at 662-577-4181 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
