(South Bend, IN) – On Saturday Dec 15 will be a celebration of 35 years of Harvey “Ole Harv” Stauffer’s “Blues Revue” radio show on WVPE-FM (88.1). The concert will feature JR Clark and the All-Star Blues Mob, and Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues at Vegetable Buddies, 129 N. Michigan St., South Bend, Indiana. Showtime is 7pm and tickets are $20.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of his “Blues Revue” radio program on WVPE-FM (88.1), Harvey “Ole Harv” Stauffer brought in the legendary Koko Taylor for a gig at Z.B. Falcons in South Bend. That was a pretty big deal, but it turns out that he was only just getting started.
Every five years, there’s been another anniversary celebration at a local venue, and the list of headlining stars has gotten quite impressive: Rod Piazza, Larry McCray, Michael “Iron Man” Burks, Deanna Bogart. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the program, and Stauffer’s bash features two top bands this time around.
