Blues & Brews Festival by Martinez

The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival is going big in celebration of 16 years as one of Colorado’s premier music festivals. Telluride Blues & Brews is pleased to announce that Joe Cocker, Buddy Guy and Bonnie Raitt will be headlining this year’s festival, which runs September 18-20, 2009. In addition to these amazing artists, festival goers will also be treated to sets from BonTaj Roulet, Umphrey’s McGee, Saint Jude and many more.

Telluride Blues & Brews is excited to be a part of the BonTaj Roulet Tour with Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal. Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal, both luminaries of modern blues, are joining forces for their first-ever tour together. The BonTaj Roulet Tour will be a coast-to-coast, 30-date outing in August and September, including an appearance at Telluride Blues & Brews. This show will feature Raitt and Taj on stage alone and together. Raitt, backed by her always-dazzling group, and Taj, with the six-piece, Grammy-winning Phantom Blues Band, will play full sets separately, before closing the night with a collaborative, blow-out performance.

And there are so many other great acts that will be gracing the Telluride Blues & Brews stage, including Jackie Greene, Xavier Rudd, Otis Taylor’s African Orchestra, Jason Ricci & New Blood, Ruthie Foster, Super Chikan and the Fighting Cocks, Ryan Shaw, Carolyn Wonderland, The Lee Boys, JP Soars & the Red Hots, Lukas Nelson & The Promise of The Real and Aftergrass.

Along with an amazing weekend of music, Telluride Blues & Brews proudly presents the Grand Tasting on Saturday, September 19, 2009. Quickly becoming one of the premier tasting events in the Southwest, the Grand Tasting features more than 150 beers from 56 microbreweries.

We are rocked to the core to hear of the passing of our dear friend, bandmate and musical genius, Mike Finnigan. He fought his long illness with the same fearlessness and ferocity he brought to every part of his life. Our deepest condolences go out to Candy, Kelly, Bridget and all his family.

Mike was one of the most powerful, virtuosic soul/gospel/blues singers and Hammond B3 players you’ll ever be blessed to hear. Respected and emulated by musicians the world over, his legacy of staggering
performances across his 60+ years career will stand the test of time. He stopped our show nearly every night. There was simply no one like him.

He was whipsmart, incredibly articulate and funny as hell. He was as devoted to his beloved family and friends as he was to helping so many struggling to get and stay sober. He and his wife Candy were instrumental in my own sobriety and I will be forever grateful.

Rest in peace, dear Mike. I know you’ll be shaking that Heavenly Choir to new heights as only you can do.

Here’s a clip from our 2013 Slipstream tour, where he tore up the place every night with Ray Charles’ iconic “I’ve Got News for You.”
