Bluesy ZUZI! is an annual event for blues lovers and those who love to dance to the blues. ZUZI! is Arizona’s premier multi-generational dance institution, which creates and teaches dance for all levels and all ages for art and maintaining health. ZUZI! showcases talent in programs and community collaborations with outside dancers, musicians, poets, youth organizations and actors.

The band, "Blues For 6+1," features sensational violinist, Heather “Lil’ Mama” Hardy with Bryan Dean and Ed Delucia on guitar, Michael P. on the organ, Sabra Faulk playing bass, and Fred Hayes beating on the drums, along with Bruce Blackstone on harmonica.
