Have you heard? Red, White & The Blues 2012 is only a week away and quickly approaching. This 21 and older event will feature an unforgettable evening filled with blues and wine at Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland on Friday, October 12. This marks the 11th annual year the museum has held the event, and this year’s festivities are sure to bring a party you won’t want to miss!
From 6:30 p.m.-11:00 p.m., guests will get the chance to participate in a wine tasting, listen to a blues concert from Smokin’ Joe Kubek and Bnois King and enjoy great food, wine and craft beers.
Featured performers Smokin’ Joe Kubek and Bnois King are veteran Texas bluesmen who bring back the classic sound of the blues music that fans of the blues are sure to appreciate.
According to Billboard, “The band plays hard-hitting, original blues. Kubek is one of the fiercest Texas blues guitarists…his fiery leads are complemented by King’s adroit rhythm guitar and classic vocals.” Tampa Bay blues performer Selwyn Birchwood will open the show.
