  Blues on the Mississippi kicks off

Billy Peek Beautiful weather greeted the crowd that descended on the J. B Park amphitheater last Friday night. As the lawn filled up, Billy Peek was introduced by promoter Marty Koch, who is responsible for bringing this event to the level it is. Just take a look at the talent booked in this year, and you'll agree that this has become one of St. Louis' premiere music events. It's a perfect venue for families to bring their kids & a cooler, spread a blanket and set up some lawn chairs.

Billy then took to the stage, showcasing the guitar sounds that have made him a local legend over the years. A mix of Blues, Rock & Roll, and some Chuck Berry covers made up the energetic 1st set. It's been overheard from Chuck Berry that "Billy Peek plays Chuck Berry better than Chuck Berry does".
Most would agree that few in St. Louis capture Chuck's style better, even down to the duckwalk. But don't take my word for it, catch Billy yourself - he's an longtime institution at the Grizzly Bear, where he's traded weekends there for years with the Soulard Blues Band!

There's so much more music coming, here's the schedule. Want to win some free tickets? Click here!!

Words of caution: citronella candles & insect repellent, in case the mosquitos are hungry!
