BEFORE CONTACTING US FOR EVENT SUPPORT: We highly recommend visiting our Calendar Page, where we have an embedded view of the Central Valley Blues Society's Calendar, which they have graciously shared with us. You can submit events/gigs to CVBS' calendar, which will then appear on our TGGBS Calendar. Another excellent calendar resource is Jack's Bay Area Blues Clues, which Jack Cohen maintains by combing thru events on CVBS' calendar, as well as other Northern California music calendars. You need to join Jack's Yahoo group to view his calendar and to get his weekend emails, but it's well worth it!

TGGBS EVENT SUPPORT POLICY: TGGBS is a non-profit all-volunteer organization, with a Board comprised of working professionals with very limited free time. On any given night, there are hundreds of live music acts performing in the SF Bay Area; an impossible task to keep up with. Rather than play favorites, we limit our event promotion to the following circumstances -- 1) LOCAL (SF Bay Area) Blues Festivals, 2) LOCAL Blues Events which offer a TGGBS Member Discount of $5 or more (ticket discounts are preferred), and 3) our own TGGBS Events, such as our International Blues Challenge (IBC) Events, Fundraisers, and TGGBS Jams.

If your event fits into Categories 1 or 2, please send an email to so that we can determine if it should be added to this Event Page. If we're sending out an email newsletter before your event occurs, we may also add your event to the newsletter. In addition, we encourage everyone to 'Like' our Facebook page and post events there. We currently have over 2600 followers. Thank you for your support!
