The Golden Gate Blues Society is very active, and is looking forward to another great year. Here are some of the things we've been doing...
  • Excellent musicians competing spring, summer & fall in our local IBC, with a Band and Solo/Duo act being sent to Memphis each year (since 2011) to represent us in the Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge. We're very proud of our artists' achievements. Please visit our IBC page for more info.
  • Best Self-Produced CD Submissions to the Blues Foundation's Award Committee.
  • Support for various blues festivals and events around the Bay Area.
  • A funded Blues In The Schools (BITS) program.
  • A healthy 'Musicians Health Fund', which has so far donated over $3000 to musicians in need. Note that the San Francisco International Boogie Woogie Festival is currently our biggest donor to this fund -- but you can also contribute -- by clicking the 'Donate' button on this page, or by visiting our Store page.
  • A Keeping the Blues Alive for Myron Mu (owner of The Saloon, San Francisco).

Jack's Calendar
TGGBS offers links to two very good blues-related calendars for Northern California. One is from Jack Cohen, who maintains Jack's Bay Area Blues Clues, and one is from one of our sister blues societies, the Central Valley Blues Society, who has graciously shared their calendar with us. Please visit our CALENDAR page for details.
