The Friday before the 2009 Deep Blue Innovators Blues Festival saw local musicians and festival performers take the stage at Buddes in Galesburg.

Joe Price, Vicki Price, Bernie Pearl and Mike Barry all took the stage for some solid blues jams as did local favorites Mike Budde, Nathan Hahn and Curtis Hawkins.

The packed bar got to hear a preview of the festival as well as win some festival swag (t-shirts, tickets and CDs).
