A2 Blues & Jazz Festival - History

Peter Andrews, who co-produced the '72 and '73 festivals writes:
...
The continuation and expansion of the Ann Arbor Blues Festival was primarily the work of Peter Andrews and John Sinclair, two local Ann Arbor personalities with extensive musical experience.
...
Peter Andrews had managed bands and promoted music in Ann Arbor for several years, both on his own and under the auspices of the University of Michigan in his position as events coordinator. Andrews had the business experience, a track record, and promotional skills to bring this off.
...
John Sinclair provided the creative side of the equation and Pete Andrews the business and booking skills.
...
John Sinclair and Peter Andrews wrote in the 1972 Festival Program:
...
"The Blues and Jazz festival was conceived last winter by Rainbow Multi-Media president Peter Andrews as a revival of the original Ann Arbor Blues Festival, which, after two incredible years (1969 and 1970) of artistic (but not financial) success, was laid to rest by the University of Michigan before a 1971 festival could struggle into life."
...
In 1974, with a change in city government (more republicans on the city council), Sinclair and Andrews ran into problems getting a permit.
...
Peter Andrews, co-founder of the 1972 festival, refused to allow this beautiful creation die and continued, year after year, to approach the city about reinstating the festival. He was sent, each year, to the Parks Department, where he was habitually turned down. In fact, success did not come until he teamed up with Lee Berry, a successful Ann Arbor music promoter.
The refusal on the city's part to grant permission for the 1974 festival and the financial disaster that border officials caused had left bitter opposition between the festival producers and the city administration. Although Peter Andrews made a proposal to revive the festival almost every year, it seemed that the city council did not want to reopen that door. Promoter Lee Berry had been considering creating an entirely-new blues and jazz event, but decided that the legacy of the original festival was worth saving.
Berry had a different plan and, together with Peter Andrews and Eric Cole, persisted until the festival found supporters.
