BLYTHE, Calif. - The 3rd Annual Blues Festival opened May 24 with a Blythe Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting to celebrate the renovations at Quechan Park and Marina. The Chamber-sponsored event saw more attendees with nearly 1,000 people throughout the festival to witness local band South Main Blues Band and former Blythe residents Bill Tuck and Joe Serrato grace the stage.

In addition to Chase Walker and Band, the teenage phenom, blues fans received an impressive performance from Kirk Fletcher who broke two strings on his bass guitar before his set was over. Fletcher was followed by headliner Arthur Adams who has played with legendary B.B. King.

Adams gave a show-stopping performance that culminated with a jam session (pictured, left to right) with Fran Banish, Michael Williams, Adams, and Fletcher. Williams and his band followed Adams with a jaw-dropping performance of his own breaking a string on his bass guitar before the first song was over. Ending the night was Kofi Baker who brought the C.R.E.A.M. Experience to Quechan Marina and Park.

This year's proceeds from the 3rd Annual Blues Festival will go to Blythe Chamber of Commerce and Blythe T.A.S.K. to help build a special-needs park for disabled children.
