Hear the sound of blues: Waukesha Rotary Bluesfest runs Aug. 12 and 13

WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- CBS 58 stopped for a sample of the Waukesha Rotary Bluesfest at Naga-Waukee Park Friday, Aug. 12. They have a lineup that includes half a dozen bands Friday and six more Saturday, Aug. 13. 

The Waukesha Rotary Club runs the festival as a fundraiser for nonprofits in the area and like many other music events, they're bouncing back from the pandemic. 

"We did stop for the one year, 2020 the first year of COVID, but last year we did go and it was OK, we had a decent turnout, but this year we're way more excited. We've had a lot more advanced ticket sales. We're feeling really good about attendance here," said Brad Wells, Waukesha Rotary Club. 

Friday's headline act is the Duke Robillard Band. Recording artist Sue Foley is Saturday's headliner. 

The music plays until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 1-10 p.m.
