Blues in the Schools with Bobby Messano

Dec 10, 2014 Noon - 1pm

UW Center for Civic Engagement, 625 Stewart Ave, Wausau WI 54401
The Great Northern Blues Society (GNBS) of Wausau, WI is pleased to announce that they will be hosting 19-time Grammy Award nominee and Blues Hall of Fame member, Bobby Messano, at a Blues-In-School (BITS) event to take place from 12 noon to 1:00 pm.
Bobby will be playing at the UWMC Campus in the UW Center for Civic Engagement, which is the large, new theater located at 625 Stewart Avenue. All are welcome to attend this free event.
BITS is an arts program fostered by The Blues Foundation of Memphis, Tennessee. Various affiliates such as GNBS, which is a Wisconsin 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, are delivering performances designed to expose and inspire our youth to the power and cultural significance of this uniquely American musical form.
The society is delighted to host world class entertainers such as Mr. Messano at no cost to attendees. We are able to do this with generous contributions from members, and especially our corporate sponsors. It is their generosity that makes events like this possible.
Bobby will also be playing on that evening at the Intermission Bar, 325 Fourth St. in downtown Wausau. There will be no cover charge for this show as well.
Booby Messano will be back in the Wausau area where he will appear with four other great bands at GNBS’ 16th Annual Blues Café event on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at the Rothschild Pavilion.
For more information, visit the society’s website at www.gnbs.org or the GNBS Facebook Page.
