Waterfront Blues Festival: Salute to Elmore James
July 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Rose City Kings will present A Salute to Elmore James in celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth. Elmore James is known as “King of the Slide Guitar,” laying the foundation for subsequent Blues Rock generations. We will weave the past and the present together by performing Elmore James songs along with our contemporary Blues-Rock music.
Rose City Kings is proud to help in the fight against hunger. This year, the Blues Fest supports both the Oregon Food Bank and the Sunshine Division. Bring your cans of food! The Sunshine Division has offered free food and clothing assistance to Oregon for over 95 years! The Sunshine Division has built a local legacy of mobilizing quickly and efficiently to assist distressed Portlanders. Individuals and families can get relief six days a week at their North Thompson location, four days a week at their Southeast Stark location, and 24/7 assistance through a partnership with the Portland Police Bureau.
