This summer, Blues on the Green returns to Zilker Park. In its 30th year, the Austin City Limits Radio-sponsored series launches on July 27 with Gary Clark Jr.'s Handpicked Homegrown All-Star Revue, followed on July 28 by up-and-coming local artists Mobley and Kalu & the Electric Joint.

As part of the revue show, Clark's band will accompany seven Austin artists: Jackie Venson, Jimmie Vaughan, Blackillac, Kydd Jones, Eve Monsees, the Peterson Brothers, and Suzanne Santos. Clark is likely to sit in with most of the artists, and he may perform a few songs of his own, though there is no set structure. 

Since Gary is hosting it, we don't know what we will get, but I know it will be amazing.

During the 2019 Austin City Limits Music Festival, Clark spiced up his sets both weekends by inviting some of his favorite local acts (including Blackillac, Kydd Jones, and the Peterson Brothers) to perform with him on several songs. Clark has a long history of bringing local artists on tour to open his shows, such as Venson and Tameca Jones.

The show is free to the public at the beautiful Zilker Park in Austin.

If you plan to see a great free show, be prepared to park far and walk or catch some public transportation.

Also, bring a chair or a blanket, and I'm pretty sure you can bring a cooler with drinks.

However you decide to do it, it is sure to be a treat to see all these local artists on one stage.

I look forward to listening to some live music at blues on the green! How about you?

Here Are 11 New Edition Classics That Are Undeniable

These Are 11 Songs by the R& B Group, New Edition Classic Songs That Are Undeniable

New Edition was formed in the late 1970s in The Roxbury area of Boston Massachusetts.

Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant and Ricky Bell were the original members in the group when their first manager Brooke Payne added his nephew Ronny Devoe.

The group experienced their share of ups and downs over the years including them booting member Bobby Brown out of the group and later adding Johnny Gill, changing managers because of shady contracts, drug abuse, hitting rock bottom and coming back into success.

Bobby Brown went on to have a rather successful run as a solo artist selling more than 20 million albums.

Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant both went solo after the group broke up in the late 1980s, with Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronny Devoe starting their own solo group Bell, Biv, Devoe.

They released a comeback album in 1996 entitled Home Again and their last album with Bad Boy Records in 2004 called "One Love."

In 2017 BET released a biopic on the group and later released a biopic on the life of Bobby Brown.

The legendary group would go on to release 8 studio albums (Including one Christmas album) selling over 10 million albums worldwide.

They recently signed an agreement with CAA who has announced a future Las Vegas Residency and a national tour.

Needless to say, they are all back!

Here are 11 songs made from New Edition you can't deny!
