Bill "The Sauce Boss" Wharton

Blues has long been the favorite form of music for Austrian born chef and entrepreneur, Harald Neuweg, Owner of Fritz & Franz Bierhaus in Coral Gables and Wienerstube Restaurant in Aspen.

The soulful tunes of Blues speaking of heartache and loss have touched many and made legends out of the likes of BB King and Ella Fitzgerald. For fans of this classic genre, the Coral Gables Bluesfest is not to be missed.

While there are many Miami events that celebrate music and the Blues, Coral Gables Bluesfest is a standout. Scheduled for March 26-28, this great Florida blues festival is jammed a packed with world-class sets by fabulous musicians.

The 12th annual Coral Gables Bluesfest is a free showcase for national acts as well as local artists looking for their big break. Held outside of Fritz and Franz Bierhaus, the music is mixed with the best in American, Creole, German and Austrian dishes. Fritz and Franz Bierhaus is located at 60 Merrick Way in Coral Gables.
