For the Benefactor's Ball...

…Among other perks of being a benefactor of Deep Blues Festival 2016!!

Yes, there is a private party at Red’s Lounge on Friday, October 14 from 5-7pm for benefactors only.  Red his-fine-self will be grilling and there will be jukin’ (artist TBA, stay tuned!).

Be a benefactor and you can rent a room at the Shack Up Inn before we open the floodgates to the public at large!  Stack the deck, get some friends and some shacks, and let’s make this a party to remember.  Booking for the public begins in just under two weeks, so get in while there is still space!

As a benefactor, you also get the supreme satisfaction in knowing that you are an important part in making this festival happen.  Deep Blues has traditionally been, and continues to be, fan-driven and benefactor supported.  An enormous thank you to the benefactors who have contributed thus far, and we hope to add more of you to the Deep Blues family!

Benefactors’ passes may be purchased here.  It is a minimum donation of $100.

Then, purchase your weekend passes here!  They are just $75 for three nights of music at the Juke Joint Chapel at the Shack Up Inn and the New Roxy theater.  Plus: Sunday gospel to soothe what ails you.  This performance will take place in the Juke Joint Chapel from 11am-1pm.

Keep in mind that other venues around town will also be shaking it up too!  Covers will apply for some shows outside the Shacks and the New Roxy, but there will be plenty of free daytime music as well.

  • The Jeff Norwood Memorial Stage at Shacksdale will have non-stop action on the afternoons of October 13, 14 and 16th.
