WOLFEBORO — On Friday, July 10 at 7:30 pm the Great Waters Music Festival will kick off its Kingwood Series with Blood Sweat & Tears.

"Like a great baseball team the members change but the soul lives on, Though many great musicians have passed through BS&T it's musicianship stands the test of time" 2005 found BS&T looking back to founding father Bobby Colomby's original vision for Blood Sweat & Tears quite simple "Find the greatest musicians and the rest is easy".

The current lead singer for the group is Bo Bice, who was the runner up to Carrie Underwood in 2005 on the hit FOX show American Idol.
