The 2014 Blues Cruise season has come to a close - but what a way to go out! The NorthShore Band along with special guests Devan Jones and Robert Knapp rocked the boat for 3 hours. SMBS' own Barry Faust joined the group for a few numbers to add some hot harp to an already scorching Blues sound.
Thank you to everyone who participated in and supported our Blues cruises this season: fans*bands*volunteers*sponsors. You all made this a very successful year. See you next year on the river!
