Larry Grisham, singer, guitarist, and founding member of “The Beat Daddys”, a successful rock and blues band based in Evansville, Indiana, left this life on June 9, 2020 in Evansville. He and the Beat Daddys traveled all over the United States, Asia, the Pacific, and Europe, to promote his brand of rockin' blues with his astounding stage presence and growling vocals. The River Basin Blues Society, along with everyone across the Blues Universe, wish to express sadness and condolences to Larry's family. RBBS is proud to have known Larry and to have had his advice, support, friendship, and wisdom for the years its has been an affiliate society. For all the good times and great music, we thank you

Due to the current society circumstance, the River Basin Blues Society is sad to announce that it is cancelling the current date for the 5th Annual Burdette Blues Festival. That date is Saturday, July 18th. We are looking to do some things later in the year, if the situation changes. So, stay tune and long live the blues!
