Thanks for hosting today's Battle of the Blues bands. I was honored to be a part of it.

Hello, I know of a wonderful blues singer in CA (Finis Tasby) who has had health problems and needs assistance with medical bills etc. I had the name & number of an organization that helps musicians with financial problems, but I moved and lost the information. Can someone provide me with the contact information for such an organization? Sincerely, Verna Doge Vocalist 805-895-1001



EDDIE CLEARWATER!!! Im in.. The Chief is a Chi-town legend. Great site and thank American Blues Scene magazine for this hook up!!!

Great job

Friends with Boxcar 7, Julie Long, Cadillac Zach.

I love what you do !! Keep the blues alive !! See you on Reverb. nation. or You. Tube. !

love it !

HI! I'm originally from Chicago & now I live by LAX. I play lead/Slide guitar & I need a band to play with.

55 year old Chicago native considered a BLUES aficionado since the 7Th grade. Admiration for this emotional, raw, sensitive, expressive music art form is due to its 'Rhythm of the Heart' letting us know we are not alone in our own experiences. For example... "...You're evil when you're with me babe & you are jealous when we're far..." or "...I let you stay in my penthouse, you said it was a shack...I gave you 7 children and now you wanna' give 'em back..." (BB King) Remember..."The Blues had a baby & they called it Rock-n-Roll & if you don't like it you've gotta' hole in your soul..." The beat tends to be favorable among your high end burlesque acts. With this genre as a preference all compassionate music is appreciated...from Buddy Guy to Amadeus Mozart...!

What's going on SCBS!? My band Outlaw X and I just joined the society and we can't wait to get more involved with the Blues scene in the area and around the world. God Bless you for working so very hard to keep this music, the root of all modern music alive and kickin'!!! Peace and Blessings, LK

From CA--now in the South--Got married on Topanga Canyon--Chapel of the Canyons 30 yrs ago..wish we could be there..Chick Willis will be bringin' some Southern hospitality out that way...if you're comin' out Smoky Mountain way...check us out or on facebook--we have great Blues Cruises on an old paddleboat Y'all have fun!

Just found this site and I am SO EXCITED. Moved to Cali from Michigan and looking forward experiencing the blues while here in CALI!!!

As a new member, this was my 3rd SCBS event and no less amazing than the other two! I had a great time and the way everyone kept a positive attitude and rolled with the punches (which weren’t that bad) was a testimony to how much we were there to enjoy the music and to recognize the cause. I think you all did a fabulous job making the best of the situation and again – I had an incredible evening and enjoyed every Diva that performed immensely. As soon as the show started the mood changed! Great job and thank you to all the wonderful ladies that performed. I can’t wait for the next one….however, I will definitely dress it up next time!!! Those Divas looked great! Can’t wait for more. Keep up the good work. Nena Messina

Love this Group, Please tell LADY GG Hello for me, Please keep me informed about ALL the Good things You do! Ann Dandridge POWERFUL PEOPLE and FRIENDS

The joint was jumpin and the good times rolled..again! Loving it! B

You guys are a great organization. I've been to the last three shows and thought they were tremendous. Its good to see a blues society actually promoting real authentic blues for once!

From Marlene: I would like to express our gratitude for your hard work at putting on a wonderful afternoon of great music. The venue is incredibly beautiful and such a nice treat to be away from the concrete and madening crowds. Debbie did a great job booking the artists and the barbeque lady's food was awesome and enjoyed by all (nice treat, but, definitely heart attack waiting to happen cuisine, yum!). Thank you again, we will be signing up with the society and possibly I can help out as a volunteer in the future

From Rick: Thanks for all you good folks do to encourage and promte our great genre.

From Don: Wishing you the very best. Keep it Blue !!
