Placer SPCA says farewell to BBQ & Blues

The Placer SPCA announces that the 20th Annual BBQ & Blues will also be the last of its kind. After two decades of bringing nationally known blues acts to the foothills, the Placer SPCA is drawing a final curtain on the event.

To close out the 20th Annual BBQ & Blues, the Placer SPCA has scored blues legend Curtis Salgado as the headline act. Salgado has long been recognized as one of America’s finest blues/soul singers. His most recent album was 2008’s critically acclaimed “Clean Getaway.”

In past years, headliners included blues greats Koko Taylor, Elvin Bishop, Edgar Winter, Joe Louis Walker, and Pinetop Perkins

Charlie Thomas from 96.9 the Eagle and Nick Toma of CW-31’s “Good Day Sacramento” will act as the event emcees, and will also show off their blues grooves in the All-Star Band on the Constable Jack’s local entertainment stage.

With eight hours of music, BBQ & Blues is a great deal for music lovers. The event also includes vendors, great food, and the gorgeous setting of the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn.

All proceeds benefit the Placer SPCA in its efforts to fulfill its vision: That every adoptable companion animal has a home.
