Well, we have gone through a disaster of a year, so glad it is almost behind us and we have something positive to look forward to. After really 1 ½ years of less than bad revenues from our annual festival we are encouraged by the vaccine and its potential to allow 2021 to go on as planned.
We have June 12, 2021 set as our event date and I have booked all the bands. We will have a great mix of some of our past favorites and an outstanding couple of first timers to Stomp The Blues’ stage. We will announce the lineup Feb 1, 2021.
Stomp Sponsors and Supporters,
We are really excited about this year’s event and just blessed that we have now made it to year number 10! With your help we have continued to make lives better in our community. The date for 2020 is May 16 and we will be back at The Community Blood Center of The Ozarks.
I wanted to get the word out so everyone can save the date for The Sister Lucille Band - Rare Breed, Laura’s Home and Darr House Christmas Fundraiser. Like last year we will once again be at The Riff (Classic Rock Coffee) for a night of jamming and great music. This is going to be on Saturday November 17th starting at 7pm. We will have raffles for some great instruments and I hope to be able to announce the 2019 lineup.
I believe we have finally turned the corner in regard to becoming a viable resource for raising money for our mission. After 8 hard years with the help of our tremendous sponsors and volunteers I hope we have moved over the hump to consistent and fruitful gains in our fundraising campaign.
We have announced the full line up for the 8th Annual Stomp The Blues Festival to be held May 19, 2018. We are extremely excited to have been able to get these outstanding artists.
Our headliner for 2018 is Marc Broussard – www.marcbroussard.com His blend of Cajun Soul and Blues has him among the most sought after contemporary artist of our time. This is one of my favorite artist and I have been listening to Marc for well over a decade.
What a great year 2016 was for Stomp The Blues Out of Homelessness, Inc. We had significant growth in our direct support for a number of local agencies as well as daily and weekly direct interaction with our friends living in challenging situations.
Obviously, it takes a small army to deliver the mail and we have a number of great volunteers, sponsors and supporters – thanks to each and every one of you.
Our year ended something like this:
August 15, 2016
That’s a wrap,
It seems like Stomp The Blues #6 was just last weekend, maybe Paige, myself and all the others who work to make it possible are just now catching our breath.
Stomp The Blues # 6 was legendary: in music, the new venue, attendance and for the financial help we can now provide to our charity partners. We grew about 15% across the board. Women In Need of The Ozarks has received a donation of $4000, we are incrementally sharing with The Rare Breed, Harmony House and The Veteran’s Coming Home Center.
