Thanks to the participants, volunteers and sponsors. The 2011 Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival raised $52,848.64 for several local charities. “Despite a still suffering economy, we were able to increase our net by a few dollars over 2010” says Don Hooker, Promoter.

The Festival was held on May 21st and 22nd at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis, Maryland and featured Chris Isaak, Little Feat, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, John Mayall and more.

About the festival:
The Chesapeake Bay Events (CBE) held its first festival in 1998. It has quickly gained national notoriety as one of the premier Blues Festivals in the world. Outside of providing top caliber entertainment, the festival gives ALL net proceeds to charity.
