2014 Bradenton Blues Festival tickets selling quickly

   If you're planning on going to the third annual Bradenton Blues Festival and you don't have tickets yet, you might want to get them soon.

   Johnette Isham, the executive director of Realize Bradenton, which organizes the festival, said Thursday that only 10 VIP tickets remain for the Dec. 6 festival. General admission tickets are selling about 40 percent faster than they did for last year's event, she said, and that festival sold out.
   Regular tickets are $30 ($10 for children 12 and under, $25 apiece for people in groups of 10 or more). The VIP tickets, which include premium sets, food and and bar, are $250.
    Isham made her comments at an event at Darwin Brewing Co. in Bradenton to recognize the corporate and individual sponsors of the festival.
   The centerpiece of the event was the unveiling of the limited edition poster for this year's festival (shown here), which was created by Don Brandes of the Ringling College of Art and Design. The poster will be available for $30 at Keeton's Office & Art Supply, 817 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton, starting Sept. 29.
  This year's Bradenton Blues festival features Marcia Ball, Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials, Samantha Fish and many others, playing on the Bradenton Riverwalk. For information and tickets, go to,
