A Musical History of the Blues

 

The City of Elk Grove and the Committee for the Arts had the pleasure of providing two free performances of “A Musical History of the Blues” in 2013. The performances were held at two local high school’s Performing Arts Centers, Sheldon and Cosumnes Oaks.

Elk Grove’s own young musicians played in a nightclub style jam format. The Musical History of the Blues, directed by Gary Mendoza, rocked the house, bringing the audience back to the juke joints and cabarets reminiscent of blues history.
