(BATTLE CREEK, MICHIGAN)  The summer season of great outdoor parties gets
underway with two nights this year as Arcadia Brewing Company continues its
tradition of celebrating summer with sizzling blues, medal-winning brews, and their
signature barbecue on Friday and Saturday, June 13th & 14th at their brewery
in Downtown Battle Creek.  This will be Arcadia's 7th year in hosting what has
become the kick-off to the Summer Season.  It all starts Friday, June 13th
with BBQ ribs and the Blue Moon Blues Band of Kalamazoo inside Arcadia.  Cover
charge Friday evening is $5, with music starting at 8:00pm.  The celebration
continues outdoors on Saturday, June 14th in the Jackson Street Parking Lot with
Arcadia's distinctive barbeque, which includes roasting pigs that have been
fed the brewery's spent grain for the past year.  Gates open at 4:00pm and
admission is $7 in advance and $10 at the door.  Pork barbeque and smoked turkey
dinners will be served from 5 to 9pm.  Music begins at 6:00pm with the swinging
sounds of Those Delta Rhythm Kings, and Crossroads Blues Band.  Carl
Weathersby will take the stage at about 9:30pm.

Carl Weathersby spent 14 years as co-leader if the Sons of Blues, and after 4
solo albums and countless live performances, including Arcadia's Blues, Brews
& BBQ in 1999, it can no longer be said that Carl Weathersby is an up and
coming artist's clear that Carl Weathersby has arrived!  Heavily influenced
by a friend of his father, Albert King, Weathersby blends the sounds of funk
and R & B into his unique and crowd pleasing interpretation of the Blues.
