FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Spring Blues Blast Fund Raiser Planned by
The Southern Nevada Cancer Research Foundation
(Las Vegas, Nevada) - The Spring Blues Blast is an all ages Blues picnic which will be held Sunday, April 28 at the Caterine Celebrity Ranch from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM. The event is a fund raiser with proceeds from donations at the entrance, raffle earnings and food and liquor sales going to support the Southern Nevada Cancer Research Foundation. Kids events are planned and a Rock memorabilia Auction sponsored by 96.3 KKLZ radio will be held as the music plays on.
Las Vegas’ top Blues acts are donating their talent to the event. Scheduled to appear are; Scott Rhiner and the Moanin’ Blacksnakes, Jimmy Lee Smith Band, The Spellcasters, The Shuffle Aires, Willie Jaye Band, Joe Vitale, and Los Angles, Californias’ Buck Wild Star.
“The growing success of the event over the past two years held at the Sand Dollar Blues Lounge prompted us to take it to a larger venue this year. It gives us a chance to bring back the feeling of the old Blues Picnics held by the Blues Society,” says Scott Rhiner, long time local Blues musician and the Moanin’ Blacksnakes guitarist. “It’s been great to see such community support coming forward from all the musicians and companies like 96.3 KKLZ, Headliner Sound and Caterine Celebrity Ranch who have come on board as event sponsors,” said Rhiner.
Any company or individual wishing to become a sponsor, or to donate their time can contact Lisa Rhiner or Dianne Nangano at the Southern Nevada Cancer Research Foundation.
