Oakland Blues Divas 

When: Tue., Aug. 27, 8 p.m. 2019
Price: $24.00
The Oakland Blues Divas are a group of seasoned veterans of the “Down-Home Blues” in the tradition of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Bessie Smith, and Ma Rainey who wish to preserve the music even as it has evolved to reflect the Pop music sensibilities of contemporary times. Sponsored by The West Coast Blues Society, this concert is a fund-raiser for The Divas as they prepared to travel to Rentiesville, Oklahoma for the 34th Annual Dusk-Til-Down Blues Festival, a highly anticipated event for Blues-lovers all over the country. The Divas hope to be a constant reminder that the blues, jazz, and gospel are indigenous American art forms, and who better to steward their mission than women who have always loved the Blues.
