Win tickets to THE SANTA CRUZ AMERICAN MUSIC FESTIVAL at The Aptos Village Park on SantaCruz.com
For over 20 years, the Santa Cruz Blues Festival has been a Memorial Day weekend staple, but this year, there’s a new show in town. The Santa Cruz American Music Festival is a celebration of American music in many forms including blues, rock, country, folk, funk, and jazz. Festival organizers are going big with the inaugural event, bringing country duo Big & Rich and the legendary Bonnie Raitt, along with Kellie Pickler, Los Lonely Boys, JJ Grey & Mofro, Ryan Bingham, Big Sam, and others. For those Blues Festival diehards among us, Coco Montoya, Chris Cain, Ana Popovic and others will be making sure the blues are well represented.
INFO: 11 a.m. Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24. Aptos Village Park, 100 Aptos Creek Road. $65-$200. 454-7900.
