Rentiesville is a very small community, but due south of Tulsa, it’s an easy trip from just about anywhere in Oklahoma. As the name of the event implies, the music takes place overnight, 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. Festival goers will be coming from across the state, region and nation as this is easily one of the better blues events to be found anywhere.

The Oklahoma Arts Council (our major funder besides you our patrons) says good things: “This event brings in a unique group of musicians in a unique environment and underserved community. A grassroots festival with strong buy-in from the local community, and a festival that is rooted in the history of the area. . . .  this intimate setting creates a very personal experience for blues fans and musicians (both experienced and aspiring). . . . Organization does great outreach with students and seniors. ”

The kids’ village and conga drum circles are annual traditions that continue this year. The late night jams are the most amazing part of the festival. So pace yourself accordingly. Perhaps the best part? Admission is incredibly affordable, just $15 a day. Be sure to get your wristband to come and go from the festival grounds. There is free camping in the lot across from the festival site. Rentiesville is near Checotah, it is two exits north of I-40 on US 69. Or, if headed the other direction, that’s 18 miles south of Muskogee. Signs indicating the way will be posted at major intersections along the route. And if you can find Rentiesville, you can’t miss the festival. Check out www.dcminnerblues.com for more information. Or call Selby & Co. at (918) 855-0978.

General Info:
The Down Home Blues Club is an entertainment center in the rural town of Rentiesville OK. D.C. Minner (who got into 5 halls of fame) was born here in 1935 and returned with his wife/bassist after 25 years touring the nation and beyond. He brought a wealth of music with him!
D.C. and Selby were married 32 years and they founded the Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame here in Rentiesville in 2003. Before that they started a great Blues Festival held every year over Labor Day Weekend – in 1991. There are jam sessions each week on Sunday except in winter. D.C. passed in 2008 (age 73) and now his wife Selby and Dan Oklahoma Slim and the Friends of Rentiesville Blues keep the music and events rolling!!DC best by Richard Byrs on stool w guitar for OJHOF induction
