Northern Safety is proud to have been a presenting sponsor of the Mohawk Valley Blues Fest on Saturday, June 29, 2013 at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds.
On Saturday, June 29th, the Herkimer County Fairgrounds hosted the Mohawk Valley Blues Fest, proudly sponsored by Northern Safety. Beginning at noon, several blues artists took the stage, including national acts Dennis Gruenling and Steve Guyger, and international Blues and Soul star Tad Robinson. Legendary blues guitar master Jimmy Thackery will be the event’s headliner.
“It was a great event for the community, and a form of entertainment in the area that we haven’t see before,” says Neil Sexton, Northern Safety’s President, Chief Operating Officer, and member of the Mohawk Valley Blues Society. “We were excited to sponsor such high quality entertainment, and introduce people to a music genre they may have never heard before,” Mr. Sexton continued.
Before joining Northern Safety’s team, Mr. Sexton founded the Trinidaddio Blues Festival in Trinidad, Colorado. The festival had humble beginnings and as it progressed through its 14-year history, it became a nationally known festival. Mr. Sexton hopes the Mohawk Valley Blues Fest has the same success.
