Big Blues Bender


The abrupt, unanticipated & improbable sale of the Riviera Hotel & Casino to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority now looks to be almost certain. For 60 years, the Riviera Hotel & Casino was a center for Las Vegas glitz and glamor but now unfortunately may be set for destruction to make way for more convention space. Such is the price for the future of an ever expanding entertainment mecca. Team Bender is sad to see the demise of the Grand Lady of the world famous Las Vegas strip.


Team Bender refuses to be stuck between a rock and a decidedly hard place. Our team wholeheartedly believes, trusts and conceives that a solution to our Hotel woes exist. Our Team has gotten busy to secure another Las Vegas Hotel. We are confident in our efforts to OVER deliver to our Blues Family all the Blues pageantry, artists and welcoming accommodations that the Big Blues Bender is known for. Team Bender is impassioned, exuberant and vigorous in our commitment to making the Big Blues Bender an even a bigger success than last year’s Blues Spectacular.


Your patience is greatly appreciated. Our commitment to deliver the finest Blues Event possible to our Blues Family is unwavering. As promised, Team Bender will be presenting Four fantastic days of outstanding Blues entertainment September 10-13, 2015 in America’s Wildest City.

We look forward to seeing you at the Big Blues Bender…
