KXCI 91.3FM is a proud sponsor of Bookman's 30th Anniversary Party in the Park, November 3rd at the Reid Park shell. This free family event features a day of music headlined by Calexico and the Chicago Blues Reunion!
STAY TUNED TO KXCI FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A V.I.P. SEATING PACKAGE CHOCK FULL OF BOOKMAN'S ITEMS!
It's Bob's party, so we'll let him have first word: "It's been thirty years since my dad sold a small used book store to me. Who knew that that little store would morph into what Bookmans is today? Not me, that's for sure. I would like to attribute it to my brilliance but, in all honesty, we probably succeeded in spite of me. The real heroes of this story are the hundreds of wonderful people who have worked, and still work, in this endeavor. And of course all of the loyal customers across Arizona who have made our bookstores their own. So as a way to celebrate all those who have made Bookmans possible, let's have a party...on me."
The music line-up is set and includes:
12:00 - 1:30 Local legend Chuck "Wagon" Maultsby And A Few Old Wheels
2:00 - 3:30 The Insomniacs, West Coast jump blues out of Portland, OR
4:00 - 5:30 Chicago Blues Reunion (an all-star lineup of musician's musicians)
6:00 - 8:30 Everyone's favorite desert rockers Calexico
There will be vendor and organization booths on-site, affordable food, beverages, and beer, and even a special Kids' Area, with jumping castles, activities, and much more. You can also expect other surprises. Learn more at bookmans.com.
Come early, stay late, and have fun - and be sure to stop by the KXCI booth at Bookman's Party in the Park!
