Blues Cafe 2021 cancelled

If you have not heard yet, we have made the heart-wrenching decision to cancel our Blues Cafe 2021 weekend. On a positive note, Wausau Events, Inc. is still planning on holding their Big Bull Falls Blues Fest in August, and if they do, you can count on the GNBS to be around to help! We hope all our long-time and new-found friends in the blues have a happy and safe new year, and thank you for past — and hopefully future — support.
