The Pikes Peak Blues Community, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization supporting Blues and American Roots Music in the Pikes Peak Region, is sponsoring a youth blues band competition with the winning group performing, between the festival acts, on a separate stage. A portion of all proceeds from Blues on the Mesa will go to the Pikes Peak Blues Community.

Schedule of Performers

Closing out the festival is a rising star on the international blues scene, King Solomon Hicks, who grew up in Harlem (as Hicks says) “around a lot of great musicians.” That certainly shows on his debut album HARLEM, an 11-song salute to those roots — and how the 24-year-old guitarist and singer has turned them into his own fierce and distinctive style over the years. After high school, Hicks began performing in Europe opening for Jeff Beck and Ringo Starr, and was booked on Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea cruise.
Next up is Bob Margolin and the Delta Sonics. Margolin, a guitar player and singer who tours worldwide with his band, solo, or as a featured guest, delivers original songs and the spirit of Chicago Blues as learned onstage and recording with Muddy Waters’ band from 1973-1980. You can see him with Muddy and The Band in Martin Scorsese’s movie The Last Waltz. Backing Bob is the Delta Sonics, from Denver, featuring harmonica player extraordinaire, Al Chesis.
Following these powerhouse bands might be difficult for some, but that’s not a problem for Hazel Miller & The Collective. Hazel has been a sought after performer in Colorado for the past 30 years with her band, performing an eclectic blend of Jazz, R&B, Blues and original music.
The festival continues with the Lionel Young Band taking the stage featuring Lionel’s choice of instrument, the electric violin. After winning the 2008 International Blues Challenge (IBC) in the solo/duo category, Lionel and his band went on to win the 2011 IBC in the band category, making him the first double champion in the history of the IBC.
Mojomama, from Longmont, Colorado, formed in 2002 by Paul and Jessica Rogalski, have released seven albums in their 20-year career. Fans from Blues on the Mesa 2021 will remember this exciting band backing up the act, Ladies Sing the Blues.
