Blues music has a history of lifting spirits and inspiring powerful emotions, and that is why the blues still lives to this day. There are even events devoted to this enduring and moving art form, including Albany’s upcoming event, the Flint River Blues & BBQ Festival. This is the first annual festival and it is sure to be an exciting celebration that is perfect for all ages. The event is happening this October 28th, 2017, so think of it as your precursor to the Halloween celebration. Sure, it isn’t Halloween-themed, but it’s a great family event and celebration to enjoy with your friends or organization on what’s sure to be an exciting weekend, especially if you rent a travel bus in Atlanta to get you to the event. Here are some details about the event, how to prepare, and how to get the best out of the blues this October.
About the Blues Festival
Albany, Georgia, is the hometown of legendary musician Ray Charles, and to celebrate his legacy and impact on blues music, Albany is hosting the Flint River Blues & BBQ Festival, an event full of great food made fresh on the riverbank, an amazing blues concert, and more, all happening on Saturday, October 28th. The event will be held in a public space along Flint River, and there are transportation services available to help you enjoy the event to the fullest. Plan out a full day to enjoy hours of food and powerful music.
Getting to the Concert
Be prepared; traffic will be heavy in downtown Albany, especially around the Flint River, on the day of the event. In fact, the event is expected to sell out, so travel from Atlanta to Albany, Georgia, is expected to be packed. But that doesn’t mean that you have to sit in traffic, at least not in a dull way. Leave the driving to a private bus service and rent a charter bus for a week to enjoy the blues festival as well as the rest of Albany. You can tour the city, see more of Flint River, and learn more about Albany’s connection to the history of blues if you rent a charter bus for your family, friends, business, or organization. Charter bus rental rates are low for now, so be sure to rent yours and get your tickets to Flint River Blues & BBQ Festival while you can. You can rent a travel bus from Atlanta to get you to and from Albany whenever it suits your party. You can relax, enjoy the air conditioning, and even enjoy drinks and entertainment on the bus, and that’s just the party before the party!
