The soulful tunes of Blues speaking of heartache and loss have touched many and made legends out of the likes of BB King and Ella Fitzgerald. For fans of this classic genre, the Coral Gables Bluesfest is not to be missed.

While there are many Miami events that celebrate music and the Blues, Coral Gables Bluesfest is a standout. This great Florida blues festival was jammed a packed with world-class sets by fabulous musicians.

This 12th annual Coral Gables Bluesfest was a free showcase for national acts as well as local artists looking for their big break. Held outside of Fritz and Franz Bierhaus, the music was mixed with the best in American, Creole, German and Austrian dishes. Don't miss it next year

to assist both client families in these difficult economic times and earthquake
survivors who have found refuge in our community.
