Blues Bash 2005
Workshop & Concert
Nineteen high school students volunteered as ushers during the April 2005 three-act
concert. Schools included Anacapa High School, Bishop Diego High School, Cate School, and
Dos Pueblos High School. Students received a special t-shirt designating them as student
volunteers. After each band ended its set, students were taken backstage to talk with Elvin
Bishop, Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater, and Michael John.
Without question, the highlight of Blues Bash occurred when Elvin Bishop brought one of
the student volunteers on stage and had her strum his guitar while he did the finger work.
After the Blues Bash ended, students spent additional time with the artists.
