Since its debut in 2011, the San Diego Blues Festival has become a must-attend event for blues fans from across the country each September. Past performers include Taj Mahal, Billy Gibbons, Mavis Staples, Los Lobos, Eric Burdon & the Animals, Booker T. Jones and numerous members of the Blues Hall of Fame as well as up-and-coming bands - all who have teamed up to raise much-needed food and funds for the vital hunger-relief programs of the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and its North County Food Bank chapter.
The event lives up to its mission to provide great blues at an affordable price, and raise money to support the battle against hunger in our community.
