The Detroit Blues Society is coming out this year to put up a table at Heatstock for the 11th time. The West Michigan Blues Society is coming out for their 7th visit. Kalmazoo Valley Blues Assn. came last year and gave out a stack of free t-shirts – go see their great festival! This year We here at No Cover welcome the WMBS, KVBA, 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 – 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 ’09 shows, of course)
