New Location for Monthly Meeting

posted on April 8th, 2014 9:14AM

Our MABS April monthly meeting will take place at Aubree's Pizzeria & Grill 227 W. Washington on Wednesday April 23rd with a social at 6:00pm and the meeting beginning at 6:30pm. We are excited to support a local business that has been a huge supporter of the blues fest. Aubree's has been providing festival performers with a bountiful supply of their delicious pizzas for several years. Their expansion has allowed us the opportunity to hold our monthly meeting there. We encourage everyone to check out their new space and wide menu options.

Well, it seems we may have turned the corner, and "spring" is on the way, at least on the calendar.
If you're at all like us, you're getting a little stir-crazy. So why not join us for a Blues Society social? We'll be gathering from 5-7pm next Thursday, March 13th at Aubree's Restaurant in downtown Marquette. So come share an appetizer, a beverage or two and chat about the blues and whatever else comes up--you might even get the inside scoop on some of this year's Blues Festival headline acts!! Please join us, and feel free to invite non-members as well---the more the merrier!!
Hope to see YOU there, and thanks for supporting the blues in the U.P.!!
