House of Blues Cleveland kicked off their first Local Brews Local Grooves Music Festival on Saturday, February 28. The event drew a few thousand guests who enjoyed live music from 14 local bands; craft beer from a dozen local breweries; and eight food stations distributed throughout the venue space at the House of Blues. Doors opened at 4pm and the music and fun times proceeded on until 10pm. From my vantage point, the House of Blues hit high marks with entertainment; a well organized staff who helped the event run smoothly; and most importantly, happy customers. Smiles and laughter filled every room with an abundant supply of beer and food to help fuel the energy created by live music. Listed below were the breweries in attendance:
Local bands performed in the Music Hall, Foundation Room, Crossroads, and the Cambridge Room. The local artists performing were Austin Walkin' Cane, Chris Allen, Rob Duskey, LT The Mixtape Casanova; Forest City, The Travelin' Johnsons, Thor Platter, DJ Gene, and Mister Bradley P.
