Upcoming at WEFT

WEFT live blues performance

Be sure to tune in Thursday for a special edition of Dave's Blues, 11:30am - 2 pm. He's going to have the legendary Cash McCall playing live, also featuring Jim Koeppel.

Guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer Cash McCall has been performing since the 1960s. In 1988 he produced Willie Dixon's Grammy award winning CD, Hidden Charms. He has been a songwriter and session musician for Chess Records and has worked with Etta James, Ramsey Lewis, The Violinaires and more. In July of this year Cash was honored with a Jus' Blues Music Award. This will be Cash's second visit to WEFT.

WEFT Fest

Sunday September 7 @ Mike 'N' Molly's Beer Garden

Save the date and stay tuned for more information. We're finalizing details now, but we know there'll be music and free food, thanks to Mamma D's Smokehouse, Jet's Pizza and the IBEW Local 601. We have permission to block off the street so we can expand the party and include activities for kids.

We're kicking off our fall pledge drive at WEFT Fest and have some new pledge gifts and some give-aways in the works too!

Pledge Party with Tweed Funk

Saturday, September 13 9 pm @ Memphis on Main

We're having a party to celebrate the first week of pledge drive and everyone is invited. With help from our friends at Prairie Crossroads Blues Society, we're bringing this horn-based, soul blues band to Champaign for the first time. Tweed Funk has won two Wisconsin Area Music Industry Awards and is currently nominated for the 2014 Blues Blast Awards in the Soul Blues Album category for their latest CD, First Name Lucky.

We hope to see you there!
