ROBERT CRAY BAND REPLACES AILING GREGG ALLMAN

Bluestock is excited to announce the addition of the Robert Cray Band to the festival's inaugural lineup, following the cancellation of the upcoming Gregg Allman tour.

Upon his doctor's orders, Gregg Allman is unfortunately being forced to cancel his August 26 through September 15 concert dates due to an upper respiratory condition. Treatment is going to involve several days of hospitalization and 4׬ weeks of bed rest at home. Allman continues to recover from his successful liver transplant and expects to return to touring in support of his highly acclaimed Low Country Blues album in the late fall.

Bluestock will be held at world renowned Hunter Mountain Ski Resort, the home of numerous festivals including Mountain Jam and easily accessible from all over the Northeast. The site is known for its bucolic beauty, natural amphitheater and stage site lines, indoor facilities and delicious gourmet food and beer options. On-site accommodations include camping, condos, cabins and RVs.

Produced by Radio Woodstock and Steve and Jeff Simon Presents, Bluestock 2011 will be a 3-day event with music starting on Friday evening August 26 and ending early Sunday evening August 28. Weekend tickets and single day Saturday and Sunday tickets are be available at Bluestock.com. Friday's performances will be reserved for full-weekend ticket holders only.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
