Waterfront Blues Festival, 2013

Once again you can catch the BBBs at the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival and support Oregon Food Bank. This year the BBBs appear on the Delta Music Experience Driftin' Cruise on Friday July 5th at 2:00pm.

This is a great river cruise of the Willamette River, starting and ending at the Waterfront Blues Festival. Enjoy over two hours of music on multiple stages - food and bar - and air conditioned comfort, while you view Portland from the river.

Recoding in the winter of 2010

Today we just recorded our seventh song for our album. We plan to release the album on the night of our show at the Hawthorne Theatre, January 8th. The album will consist of many originals and several covers that the backyard blues boys have been honing during their live shows for the past 2 and a half years. Post on our facebook wall to preorder albums!
