Portland, OR (PRWEB) June 22, 2011
The Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival has brought some of the leading musical acts to Portland, Oregon, since it began in 1988. Over the years, the festival has grown to become the second largest blues festival in America, attracting over 120,000 attendees. This year, the Blues Festival, which takes place July 1 to July 4, features a very special late-night performance at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront Hotel. This Portland waterfront hotel will host the After-Hours Allstars in the Marriott Hotel Ballroom.
The After-Hours Allstars opens its doors at 9:30 PM. Festival goers who have already purchased a Blues Buddy, Benefactor or Patron pass will receive free admission to the After-Hours Allstars performance; individual tickets can be purchased for $15 in advance. Attendees must be 21 or over to attend the After-Hours Allstars concert.
The Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront Hotel is a proud sponsor of the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival. The festival supports the Oregon Food Bank. Each attendee is asked to bring two cans of food and $10 (or more, if possible) per person, per day. 100% of the proceeds and donations go to the Oregon Food Bank, which serves low-income families in Oregon and Southwest Washington. This is a great way to see some of the biggest names in blues, including Buddy Guy, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Lucinda Williams and more, while supporting a great cause.
