Blues in Monterey?

by oem Online Now Apr 6, 2005 at 12:02 PM

My family and I will be in Salinas from 24 to 25 June (travelling south from SF). This is the weekend of the Monterey Bay Blues Festival (which is why we couldn't find lodging in Monterey itself...), and my question is this:

Does anyone know if there are any blues concerts or other blues events in Monterey and/or Salinas during the festival - apart from the main event at Monterey Fairgrounds?

Thanks for your input.

    Better late than never: I missed the blues festival, but this might help somebody next year. Here are a few places in the area with blues regularly:

    The Jazz and Blues Company in Carmel (

    The Monterey County Weekly ( has listings of weekly events of all kinds throughout the area. Check out their "Club Grid" for specifics times, places, musicians, and music types. It seems that Sly McFly's on Cannery Row has Blues. I stopped in there one night when a band was playing...not that I can tell blues from jazz from R&B though.

    I'm sure there are more sources out there...
