“We began running our annual festival in 2010. It was a success from the start. One of the main reasons we have been successful is for seven straight years is our ability to get the word out about it to blues fans; Blues Blast Magazine is one of the best ways we have used to promote the event!” -Steve Jones President – Crossroads Blues Society – August – 2016
“Hey Bob — this could just be coincidence but after the ads started running, our website hits quintupled and our MP3 downloads on Amazon jumped to #2 in the blues/rock category and top 20 in the regular blues category. Of course, this can all be here-today-and-gone-tomorrow but I think it does show somethings about the value of advertising.” – Jon Spear – April 2016
“The nice review and ad ran today and my album went to #6 on iTunes chart.”
“Not a coincidence! Thanks.” – Tinsley Ellis – January 2014
