Hello friends! Just a quick hitter about our upcoming shows – first up, Friday, April 24th at The Magic Bag in Ferndale for the Chris Emmerson CD Album Release Party. After that, on Friday, May 1st, The Blueflowers Acoustic will be performing as part of The Metro Times Blowout at The WAB (Woodward Ave Brewers) in Ferndale.

Huge news, friends! We are so excited to tell you that our pals at North Star Media have secured us a placement in prime time television! On Wednesday, April 15th, our song “I Might” (from our third album, Stealing the Moon) can be heard on the ABC hit-drama, Nashville! Tune in THIS Wednesday and find out, along with us, where it ended up!
So, here we go…
On April 10th, we will be attending the Detroit Music Awards at the Fillmore in Detroit, a first for most of us, but not all. For the FIRST time, we are included on the final ballot and we’re up in three categories! We are nominated in the Americana Artist/Group and Americana Recording categories, and Kate has been nominated for Americana Vocalist! These awards are based on a voting process (by registered DMA voters, which is limited to people involved in some way in the music industry/scene ’round these parts), so we are beyond grateful to the people that nominated us. We are also terribly flattered and thrilled that our hard work this last year is being recognized in this way. As cliché as it sounds, it is truly an honor to be nominated alongside such talented artists in this incredible scene of ours. Voting ends March 29th, so we hope if you’re a DMA voter, or know a DMA voter, that you/they vote Bloofs and we’ll find out at the big show on April 10th!
Our next adventure comes a little later in April, when we’ll be taking our FIRST band field trip to Grand Rapids and playing a show at Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill! The date is Friday, April 17th, and we’ll be joined by Grand Rapids locals, British Racing Green. We’ve been wanting to play other towns in Michigan for a long long while, so we can’t wait for this one! We’ve heard from our friends that Tip Top is a great venue, so we hope that you’ll meet us there if you’re in the area and tell your friends!
More exciting shows are in the works that we’ll be sure to share as the details sort themselves out.
Please be sure to subscribe (to the right), so you’ll be the first to know when we post an update! Until next time… Happy Spring and virtual hugs and cheers to you all!
With an all star cast, this trailer for the DirecTV series, Full Circle, will run through February and possibly into March on the Audience Network. It features the song, I Might, from our third release, Stealing the Moon.

We’ll be taking a break from live shows for a couple of months, but will be announcing a big show in the New Year very soon. You might also catch Kate & David hitting up some open mics around town. In the meantime, here is our video for I Can’t Let Go. It was shot and edited by Bernie Edlred and Tony Hamera. Enjoy!
