        Is there really a 49 there?

        Last year, most of the singers were at the powwow til midnite.

          Well, there are three AWESOME, down home, rezzy blues bands playing this venue. I received this bulletin from the Pappy John's band and I know the Guys from the BLUES HOUNDS have it on their schedule....I've not seen corn bread in person, but from what I've heard from their NAMMY clips, they sound goodern ....

            I guess that means that this is a rockin' blues party - not a 49.

            Okay, thanks.
