Blue Star Denver 11 comes to the Soiled Dove again in 2022 with a stellar lineup for a great cause. This annual fundraiser supports Blue Star Connection, a special program of the Grand County Blues Society, founded by John Catt with a mission of bringing music into the lives of children who are struggling with serious life challenges. This year's fundraising event will feature Rick Estrin & the Nightcats along with special guests The Connections plus a large Signed Guitar Silent Auction sponsored by Category 5 Amps! For the past 11 years, many supporters of Blue Star have enjoyed being a part of these great fundraising events knowing they are getting a great night of music and they are helping Blue Star kids in the process. This year's special guests are The Connections, a group of Denver area pros that are connected by their love and support for Blue Star Connection. Long time friend of Blue Star, Kai Turner of Strictly Blues fame, will Emcee the show. The Connections will kick things off with some blues to get you going and on your feet. Award-winning, national artist Rick Estrin & the Nightcats will headline the evening with his unique and hip style of delivering blues rock music. Be sure to purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointment as this anticipated annual event sells out every year! To learn more about Blue Star Connection, please visit

"Hugely entertaining, intelligently conceived and executed roots rock with a wickedly cool and otherworldly twist on tradition. Estrin’s harp work is masterful." –Living Blues

Larger-than-life blues star Rick Estrin has piloted the wildly fun and musically fearless Rick Estrin & The Nightcats for the last decade, touring the world and proving night after night why they won 2018’s Blues Music Award for Band Of The Year. The limitless combined talents of blues harmonica virtuoso and sly, soulful singer Estrin, guitar mastermind Kid Andersen, keyboard wizard Lorenzo Farrell and endlessly creative drummer Derrick “D’Mar” Martin take Estrin’s inventive, original songs to new and unexpected places. On stage, the band’s ability to deliver an unpredictable, no-holds-barred show is unmatched.
