Big Blues Bender Founder and CEO AJ Gross shared his thoughts on the event’s location change. He explains,
When I went out in a search of a home for the Bender almost 7 years ago, the first place I went was the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and I haven’t stopped trying to get the Bender in the door at this legendary venue ever since.
I know it’s human nature to fear change. This is not a change for me. This is coming home, where we always belonged.
Do I think you’re going to have a good time at this year’s Big Blues Bender? I guarantee it!
A variety of different four-day ticket packages, including VIP and “Big Daddy Baller”, are currently on sale here.
