There will not be a November CIBS Crier Newsletter because we are busy pulling together some GREAT Blues performers for our Winter Blues Festival Jan. 28, 2012.

Many of our outstanding acts are winners of Blues Challenge Competitions around the Midwest–some not decided until this Fall. Your CIBS Board is busy putting together a Winter Blues Festival that will knock your socks off. So watch for the lineup in your December Crier.

Meantime, if you want to buy advance tickets for just $12 ($15 at the door) and reserve a room at The DSM Marriott, click on the ticket in the right-hand column!
