San Diego Blues Club Caravan


Blues Caravan bus 2

Blues Caravan bus 2

KSDS presents the first-ever San Diego Blues Club Caravan Tuesday, April 18th, from 7-11 PM!  It’s an opportunity to sample blues artists and bands at venues all over San Diego.  Advance tickets are $15 ($20 at the doors to the clubs the night of the Caravan) and include admission to all the clubs as well as unlimited transportation from club to club aboard special Caravan buses.


Here’s how it works.  The buses will stop at each club approximately every 15 minutes.  You can start at any participating venue, stay as long or as little you like there, then hop a bus to the next venue.  There are no minimums at any of the clubs, so you may eat and drink, or not, as you choose, throughout the evening.  KSDS air personalities will emcee at each of the participating clubs.
