Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival brings Northern Arizona a taste and teaser event, Downtown Blues this June

Flagstaff Blues and Brews, the largest blues festival in Arizona, recently decided to pull off a smaller event at a local downtown venue, the historic Orpheum Theater.

Downtown Blues, presented generously by locally owned and operated Stackhouse Wealth Strategies, will be held June 12th from 3 pm to 10 pm. 18 and over only. Tickets will be limited to 250, as to adhere to social distancing guidelines, and cost $42 each. Owner and producer of the Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival, Jennifer Grogan, expects this show to sell out quickly and encourages blues fans to purchase tickets soon.

“I am excited to bring the blues back to Flagstaff. Even though this isn’t our big annual festival, I’m just happy to celebrate the blues and hopefully returning to normal soon. I picked the historic Orpheum Theater as our location because of their abundance of caution regarding COVID 19 and their unrelenting support for the music community.”, says Jennifer. 

The lineup will include five bands total. The event headliner and two-time Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival alumni is Harlis Sweetwater (performed in 2015 and 2017). Event attendees will also enjoy The Chuck Hall Band, The Tommy Dukes Band, Hans Olson and the Arizona Hired Guns. These other bands have also played the main Blues and Brews festival in years past, except the incredibly talented Hans Olson.

So consider this special event a taste and a teaser to keep local and regional blues fans on the edge of their seats as music lovers across the country patiently await a full recovery of the events and festival experiences Northern Arizona has to offer.
