The Blues Angel Music Blues on the Bay Concert Series returns to the Community Maritime Park for a second season Sunday, May 3 from 6pm to 8pm. The season opener promises to be an exciting show with a performance by the Modern Eldorados. Founded by Tyron “Gretsch” Lyles in 1996, the Modern Eldorados “uncompromising sound and take no prisoners stage presence doesn’t follow trends, but on the contrary stays true to the roots of American while infusing it with individual swagger. “

“Blues Angel Music is extremely delighted to once again be sponsoring the Blues on the Bay summer concert series. In this the second year of the series, we have broadened the band selections to include genres other than strictly Blues.

We're also planning on having several musical guests at some of the performances. All of this year’s performers are known for their very high energy shows. You won't just hear're also going to see a very entertaining musical show,” said Blues Angel Music store owner Jim DeStafney.
