In September the ICBC received an anonymous donation to be used to assist a designated venue in developing more opportunities for blues bands to play. Especially local and regional bands. The Third Base was chosen by the donor because of the work they were already doing and because of their support and existing relationship with the Club. Recent blues acts included, Luca Giordano and Quique Gomez, Reverend Raven, and The North Plantation Allstars featuring Johnny Holiday. The donor, in conjunction with the Third Base's booking team put together a list of acts, 6 were required to be local that they felt met the objectives of the "grant". The Third Base has final say on who is booked. If you love live blues music, get out there and support it, especially at our local venues.
Dec. 21st, 7:30 PM, Nikki Hill featuring Matt Hill will be at Casey's Pub for an ICBC Christmas get together.
