Carryin' on the Blues legacy

Annual Bushstock 2014 – Sep 5th, 6th, and 7th – Live Music – Your all invited!!

Your all invited to Bushstock 2014, a 3 day 2 night festival right in your own backyard Poconos. The weekend will be filled with the cream of the crop of the local talent which reside in the Pocono Mountains. There will be some guests from out of town but John Petrizzo owner of Petrizzo’s restaurant on 209 in downtown Bushkill, Pennsylvania, and founder of the annual Bushstock festival wanted to keep the locals fed by boosting the local economy, community and Monroe County Diabetes Society.

The Blues Dude(Jeremiah Williams) and friends, Tony Dellaria – Drums, Rick Madigan – Bass, Dwight Spencer – Keys, will be closing out Saturday night with some soulful Blues of old and new. The band will be combining many styles of Blues like Texas Blues, Delta Blues, Chicago Blues, and much more. With a blend of cover songs that blues fans will recognize to some more obscure blues, everyone is sure to have  a great time. We encourage singing and dancing the night away.

BushStock 2014, will be a benefit for the Monroe County Diabetes Society. The dates are September 5th 6th and 7th, and its located at Petrizzo’s, 6171 Milford Rd, East Stroudsburg, PA 18302. There will be over 20 great acts, 2 stages, and a laid back atmosphere. There’s a $10 donation for each day, or all 3 for $25.

Tickets can be purchased on Main St., Stroudsburg, at Scarpelli’s Italian Specialties, The Gamer’s Edge, and Main St. Jukebox and also at the door. Since this events proceeds will go to benefit the Monroe County Diabetes Society, you can feel good about the donation going to a good local cause. The Monroe county diabetes foundation is in need of donations and they will continue to help the local population of Monroe and surrounding counties as much as possible.

The Monroe County Diabetes Society was established in 1987 as a non-profit charitable organization. All funds received go directly to assisting diabetics in Monroe County. Each year the MCDS sends children to special diabetic camps, to learn to manage their diabetes and interact with others who share their condition, In addition, MCDS, will provide temporary diabetic supplies and assistance to residents diabetics. The officers and staff are volunteers and their office space and supplies are donated by other local non-profit organizations.

The local schedule is as follows and we wanted to give a sincere thanks to Chris London of Friars Point and John Petrizzo for putting forth all the effort for such a great cause; to bring good music to the good people of the Poconos, while also benefitting the Monroe County Diabetes Association.
