802 Blues Revue Opens Vergennes Opera House's 2019-2020 Season
Based on overwhelming audience responses, (and a sold-out show in 2018!) the Vergennes Opera House season organizers have brought back the 802 Blues Revue event featuring Downtown Bob Stannard and Those Dangerous Bluesmen and a few special guests.
Like a circus ringmaster, Bob creates an atmosphere of fun and surprises, and an unforgettable night of amazing Vermont-style blues. Joining Bob on stage as Those Dangerous Bluesmen are Jeff Salisbury (percussions), Ernie Belmont (bass guitar/vocals), Bradford Morgan (keys/vocals), Joe Moore (saxophone), and John Falk (guitar/vocals). Special guests include Dennis Willmott (guitar), Bob MacKenzie (harmonica) and Lara Cwass (guitar), Jeff Salisbury (percussion/vocals), Ernie Belmond (bass guitar/vocals).
"This group has such a great time on stage together that it is hard to not get caught up in it," said Gerianne Smart, President of the Vergennes Opera House.
The show takes place on Saturday, October 12 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 in advance online at VergennesOperaHouse.org and $20 at the door. Doors and cash bar open at 6:30pm.
