“Deanna has always been one of our personal favorites,” says Don Hooker, Promoter. Deanna is scheduled to perform Sunday, May 20th, and she will be bringing a full horn section! Chesapeake Bay Events is pleased to announce that Deanna Bogart will travel from her home on the west coast to appear at the 20th Anniversary of the Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival (CBBF).
