Text Box: A Note from your Pres….


NIBA Members!

The online Membership and online NIBA Store is back! You can find these on the NIBA website at nibaweb.org.

As I sit here enjoying the sun and warmer weather in Kentucky, I look forward to a nice summer/fall where live music and jams comes back! One side effect of the pandemic has been our bubbles. I will never forget the extra time and the love and comfort of my immediate family. My heart goes out to those who have lost family members or friends. 

The NIBA Festival is scheduled for July 31st, 2021! If you have a band that wants to perform, please let me know so we can finalize the schedule. The amazing Chris Walz and the great Roadkill Rangers are already signed up! Chris will also be conducting a workshop! So sign up your band, come to jam and most of all come and enjoy all the live music and fellowship!

We will have some water and pop but other than that please bring your own food. Due to Covid we will ask you to wear masks when you cannot socially distance. We will have a covered pavilion, but we will ask you to socially distance. Camping Friday and Saturday nights is $20/night with water and electric.

I am very sad to relay that Al Watson who recently played bass for the Grass Attack band passed.
