We look forward to the Greeley Blues Jam every summer. We’ve actually never been to the full concert series on the Saturday of the Jam, but the Friday night before, they bring all the bands to various bars and restaurants in downtown and let people listen for free!
So we rode our bikes from our house and stopped at my mom’s house and asked if she and her companion, Anthony, wanted to ride with us down there.
We walked around a bit and every few steps we ran into someone else we knew. It was pretty cool to see so many people out in Greeley.
It was also the first time they had “go cups” where you could walk around the cordoned off areas with alcoholic drinks and wander into other bars with them. It reminded me a lot of New Orleans with all the music, people and drinks. Well, a little more controlled and less rowdy than New Orleans, and no zydeco but I think it went really well.
It was a party atmosphere and even though we didn’t even sit and listen to too many of the bands, I’d say it was one of our favorite Blues Jams yet.
