Ride the Arkansas Times Blues Bus

  • The Times will once again take busloads of blues lovers to the King Biscuit Blues Festival.

Is there a better way to go to a music festival than by riding a bus with a keg and live entertainment? Probably not, but if you're still not sold, just ask any of the 150-plus folks who rode along with the Arkansas Times to the Johnny Cash Music Festival last week.

Once again, the Times will be taking busloads of blues-lovers to the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena. And once again, it's a hell of a bargain, at $99 a person for round-trip transportation, free booze and entertainment on the bus, plus a stopover in DeValls Bluff for barbecue at Craig's.

The bus leaves Sat. Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. from the parking garage at 2nd and Main streets downtown and returns that evening. The headliner for Saturday night is Keb' Mo'. Other performers include Marcus "Mookie" Cartwright, Lonnie Shields, David "Honeyboy" Edwards, Tommy Castro, the Stax Review with Eddie Floyd, Duck Dunn and Steve Cropper, plus many more.

Call 501-375-2985 to order tickets, or send check or money order to: Arkansas Times Blues Bus, Box 34010, Little Rock, AR 72203.
