Blues Festival Pre-Party – The Surf District Rock ‘n Roll Grill at 9:00 PM featuring Blue Rooster. 


Blue Rooster

Blue Rooster

A group of guys out of Rochester, MN area that came together from other bands and formed their own style of Blues.  They describe their Blues as funky Blues made to stir up the henhouse and influenced by Crown Royal, cold beer, Scotch and Jag bombs. But in reality these heavyweights can carry their own against anyone out there. They have no problem cranking out the heavy Blues and have enough style and pizzazz to get you out of your seat and tear up the dance floor. They played in Bicycle, Blues and BBQ in 2016. Learn more about Blue Rooster on their Facebook Page at
