For the third year in a row, KCCK Jazz 88.3 has celebrated the blues with a fabulous blues event in Cedar Rapids called ‘daBluesapalooza held at Olympic Southside Theater.  For nearly five hours, the blues was honored with performances by local and regional artists.  The event was sold out and was a complete success.   


Funkatude, a funk band from Cedar Rapids gave a stellar performance to start the evening off.  A searing set of electric blues from Billylee Janey and Bryce Janey as The Janeys followed.  The music continued with D-Dog & the BBits featuring Dennis “Daddy-O” McMurrin, Kat Blue & The True Believers, Homebrewed, The Tanya English Band, Matt Panek & the Electric Kool Aid Trio with special guest Johnny Kilowatt, and Dr. Z’s Experiment.


It was an outstanding evening of music.  I certainly enjoyed it.
