Guitar Auction at Blues & BBQ Fest

Guitar Auction at Blues & BBQ Fest


As we have done for many years, we will have a silent auction at the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival to benefit the Heritage School of Music, the Jazz & Heritage Foundation’s free education program.

This year’s auction item is a brand new Epiphone SG guitar, donated by Florida-based Painted Axe. It’s decorated with a custom image of Samantha Fish, based on a photo from her performance at the 2017 Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival.

Samantha will autograph the guitar onstage on Friday, when she returns to the festival as a headline performer.

The guitar will be on display in the Official Merchandise tent all weekend, which is where people can sign up to bid.

The bidding will close on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 7 p.m. CST sharp, and the winning bidder will be notified via text message. The minimum opening bid is $1,200.
