About Suncoast Blues Society

A Community of Blues Lovers

Suncoast Blues Society

The goal of the Suncoast Blues Society is to share our love of the blues through education, local shows, podcasts, videos and any other blues-related content that you find valuable. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, our mission is to keep the blues alive—and growing. We are constantly adding new articles, videos, and podcasts about the history of the blues, stories about blues musicians and content that helps you understand and appreciate the blues in all its many shades.

How To Join

Over 20 Years of Blues Sharing

Since 1997, when our blues community was formed, we have been sharing our love of music with local blues shows, support for local artists, and education about how the blues was created and how it evolved into the rich music it is today.

As a 501C(3) non-profit organization, our mission is to keep the blues alive and help it grow whenever possible. Your membership helps keep this mission alive.

In 2004 we received the KBA Award as Blues Organization of the Year, but we have always been committed to growing and enriching the blues community both locally and around the world.

We have a bi-monthly printed newsletter that goes out to all members, The 12-Bar Rag. Each issue shares blues news and insights about what’s happening in the blues world, as well as reviews, special offers, and stories about the music you love.

We are in the process of expanding our website with more music, articles, and videos that keep your love of blues growing and deepening. Here’s an example of some of the content we will be adding to the site.

Soon we will be adding live concerts to the site via a streaming platform. That means wherever you are you can reap the benefits of being part of the rich blues experience that SBS offers.

Take a look through our website and you’ll see what we provide to you as a blues lover, and to the local and worldwide community of blues fans. Our main goal is to help spread our love and appreciation for the music we love.
