BOP Blues FESTIVAL 2018 – Queens Birthday Weekend 1st – 4th June

Due to a couple of recent committee resignations for personal reasons and some on going issues with funding that is available, the BOP Blues Club have decided to defer the BOP Blues Festival for 2018. The club has been operating for 11 years this year and in order for the club to continue to operate it’s regular monthly, year round club meetings and Jam Nights the committee has decided that it is instead wiser to invest some time and funds into our club assets, namely our PA gear and amplification equipment.  Only in this fashion can the BOP Blues Club continue to deliver quality Jam Nights for those people who play and support the club.

An idea has been floated to run a mini 1 day event in the near future but no date for this has been set at this point.

Thank you for the continued support of the BOP Blues Club, and we hope we can grow from strength to strength with our ‘new look’ Club and continue to grow for ‘Live Music’.

Paul Hindrup

President BOP Blues Club
