I Hope you did not miss THE festival of the summer - HEATSTOCK! July 29th and 30th 2011 We had all the usual stuff-- smoked turkeys-- roaster hog--chicken--sausage--hotdogs--hamburgers--beer--pop--plenty of blues bands--camping--door prizes (we skipped door prizes for more music this year!)---All included with your ticket!!. The Detroit Blues Society Came out this year to put up a table at Heatstock for the 12th time. The West Michigan Blues Society was unable to make it but will hopefully come out for their 8th visit in 2012. We here at No Cover welcome the WMBS, and the DBS and we ask all the Heatstock regulars to join these groups and also support the bands who play at Heatstock every year by purchasing their CD's and/or attending their live shows.--Mike.
Tom the Detroit videoman came out to Heatstock for the first time in 2002 and made a video featuring two songs from each band that played. Copies are available through Tom, you can get them through his website at --detroitvideoman.com Over 2 hours for just $10 What a deal! He made a 2003 Version from his second visit which is a 2 tape set with 3 hours of music. The '04 version is also excellent. The recordings from '05 are super-fantastic! and he was back again in '06 too! (he also taped the '07 thru '11 shows, of course)
