The Blues on Broadway music series was conceived by Joe Mack, a native "Newburghian," born and bred. After working with Safe Harbors back in 2016-2017 on a photography project and recently retired, Joe had an idea for The Blues on Broadway music series.

The 5th concert in a series of 6 will be on Friday July 20th at The Ritz in Newburgh. Bruce Katz is a four time Nominee for the Blues Music Award for "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year."

These shows have been running since March and will continue into August with a final blues performance. That show will headline Jeremy Baum and is scheduled for August 17th.
