Tomorrow is the big day for the beginning of the long-awaited 32nd annual King Biscuit Blues Festival. It all begins with “Warm-Up Wednesday.” This is for eager early bird festival arrivals that features lots of free music and plenty of good food starting around noon time.

Activities begin at 6 p.m. with the annual Michael Burks Memorial Jam on the Main Stage. Just prior to the jam at 5:30 p.m. there will be a special tribute to Anson Funderburgh, who is the only performer to grace the stage of the KBBF since its inaugural year back in 1986. This celebration will be held in the VIP tent and is open to anyone wearing a wristband.

Around 8 p.m., Anson and friends featuring Andy T's Band, Alabama Mike and Leroy Parnell will take center stage and lead a jam session into the night.

Due to low water on the Mississippi River, cruises planned on The Island Queen have been cancelled.
