We’ve all heard this line, “If you build it, they will come.” This not-quite accurate Field of Dreams quote still resonates. For me, it became kind of a mantra, build it and they will come. Build what exactly, you’re wondering? We at the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation reached out to our Mississippi friends. Reflecting upon the legacy of the MS Delta blues and the integrally related rock ‘n roll heritage of the Jersey Shore, we created The Mississippi Delta Meets the Jersey Shore!
As part of our JSJBF “outreach programming,” we’re extending our reach to the Mississippi Delta! We’ve created a MS Delta/Jersey Shore partnership! We’ve all heard the famous Muddy Waters quote: “The blues had a baby and they named it rock and roll.” What better way to celebrate the offspring, the fantastic Jersey Shore rock ‘n’ roll sound, than to honor its roots!
