Twelve Years ago there were over twenty Blues Venues in New York City. By 2008 we were down to two venues. That's why we started the NEW YORK CITY BLUES SOCIETY.
At the NYC Blues Society we promote today's and tomorrow's Blues talent, Blues venues and any event that significantly contributes to the Blues scene in the NYC area. This is only possible through the support of great blues fans like yourself! Join the only Blues Society focused exclusively on supporting the Blues Genre here in New York City. Become a member today and help support a thriving Blues music scene in NYC once again!
