What a difference a year makes. Good weather. Good food. And, of course, good music. The 30th King Biscuit Blues Festival was all that we hoped for and more.

Not to be forgotten are the BBQers, runners, friends and sponsors. While the accomplishments of 2015 still glow, we've begun work towards keeping the Biscuit rising.
