Directions

Here is a link to Google Maps and the address: 2133 Frederick St Detroit, MI 48211 The festival actually occurs in a field across the street from where John used to live, so this is actually the address of a field. If you can get to the Detroit Institute of Arts, then you will find it pretty easy to follow Warren to St Aubin to Frederick and the Carpet House. If you have any questions, call Pete Barrow at (313) 995-8715

Why we need donations
« on: April 06, 2013, 07:23:48 PM »
It takes a lot of time and money, to put the jam on for free.   Big Time Pete has been digging into his own pocket for a long time now, and it is about time we started helping him.

Pete bought the gas powered generator he hauls to the field, he pays for the porta-a-john gas for the generator. Pete pays people to cut the grass, he pays people to pick up the trash that gets thrown around plus for hauling it away. No one does any of this for free, Plus he pays  for the house band with your donations. 

What little bit of money has been collected or donated has not really been near enough, and it would be real nice if we had a sponsor to help out.

If you are truly a blues lover , and want to keep the blues alive, please donate.  Very many local and out of state artists benefit from this event.
