Wednesday November 3rd, 2021
Doors open: 5 pm / Event begins: 6 pm
Lovejoy Rooftop @ Botanist 910 NW 14th Ave Portland 97209
The biggest single night for the Portland blues community returns after a one-year hiatus. This year the gala event will be held at Lovejoy Rooftop, the event side of Botanist, on Wednesday November 3rd. The Cascade Blues Association presents the ‘Mini’ Muddy Awards, honoring musical achievements from the past two-year period (Sept 1, 2019 through Aug 31, 2021) as awards are handed out recognizing outstanding musicians, venues, recordings, events, and more.
This year’s ceremony will include ten categories, including some new ones, that best reflect the modified circumstances that have existed over the past year and a half, and voted on by CBA members in mid-October through an online ballot.
Music will feature separate All-Star sets assembled by Rae Gordon and Ben Rice.

In the local community, we are known for our personalized style of hospitality, creative cocktails, and delectable tapas and entrées.
