10th Annual Blues B-Q in Downtown Orlando





Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer invites Central Florida residents and visitors to the 10th annual Blues B-Q in Downtown Orlando on Saturday, February 27. 




Presented alongside community partner Star 94.5, this free event attracts visitors from across the region thanks to performances by award-winning musicians, as well as the opportunity to purchase some of Orlando’s best barbecue.

This year’s Blues B-Q features live music throughout the day from The Company and MoMo Browne, leading up to the headliner, WAR. WAR’s hit songs include “Why Can’t We Be Friends” and “Low Rider.” Mouth-watering barbecue will be available for purchase from Bubbalou’s BBQ, Hard Rock Catering, Oley’s Smokehouse, Serena’s BBQ and Smokey Jay’s BBQ.

During the event, representatives from My Brother’s Keeper, a national initiative the City of Orlando joined in 2014 to address opportunity gaps faced by young men of color, will be on hand to provide information on mentorship opportunities.

The music will be provided by WAR, The Company and MoMo Browne. The food that will be available for purchase is going to be cooked up by Bubbalou’s BBQ, Hard Rock Catering, Oley’s Smokehouse, Serena’s BBQ and Smokey Jay’s BBQ.

Now in its tenth year, Blues B-Q boasts previous headline acts such as GRAMMY Award winning artists Betty Wright, Denise LaSalle, Buddy Guy, The Robert Cray Band, Jonny Lang and Queen of the Blues Koko Taylor. Previous performers include GRAMMY nominated Shemekia Copeland and John Mayall, “The Godfather of British Blues.”
