This year three of the region's best blues bands will come together for the festival. The event will be a celebration of toe-tapping, hand-clapping, soul-stirring and get up and dance music.

About our Rotary Club:
The Klamath Basin Sunrise Rotary Club was Chartered in December, 1997.
Benefit to our community – Sunrise Rotary Club members believe that they serve to make a difference in the local and international community. The club serves the Klamath Community in order to improve the lives of their “neighbors”. Our commitment to youth is because we believe … if children’s lives are improved now, they will be better citizens in our community in the future.
We are also active on the international level by supporting The Rotary International Foundation and have numerous "Paul Harris Fellows" as members.
