Suncoast Blues Festival & Evie’s Holding FREE Blues Concert Series
The 3rd Annual Suncoast Blues Festival being held at the Sarasota Fairgrounds Jan. 27 and 28 is set to whet your appetite for live blues with a FREE Concert Series at Evie’s Tavern on the Range prior to the main event. Located at 4735 Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota, Evie’s has a delicious late-night menu and family-fun activities. Family Promise, the event’s beneficiary, will be on hand at each concert to sell tickets to the Suncoast Blues Festival.
Kicking off the Evie’s Tavern Free Concert Series is: Randy Stephens and the Groovemakers from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11. On Friday, Dec. 9, Justin Layman will be playing from 6 to 9 p.m. The Allstar Blues Band will be blastin’ the blues from 5 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25th.
“We are thrilled to have Evie’s as a sponsor of the Suncoast Blues Festival,” said Roseanne Herndon, event manager. “Their concert series on behalf of the Festival is going to be a lot of fun. We hope to see a lot of people come out and enjoy this free festival along with great food from a wonderful venue. It is also a great time to purchase tickets to the festival from Family Promise Sarasota. A portion of the proceeds goes directly to this amazing charity.”
