The Bay Area Blues Society is a non-profit, 501 © (3) organization dedicated to the perpetuation of  Blues, Jazz and
Gospel as an indigenous American art form. We are dedicated to the preservation, promotion and representation  of this
American folk music and cultural forms of Blues, Jazz and Gospel as they took root in African-American communities.  
The communities of Oakland, Hayward-Russell City, Pittsburg, Richmond, and Vallejo all have deep roots in the music
idiom.

For the past 23 years, the Bay Area Blues Society has surpassed all other blues society's who focus on just Blues festivals
and membership.  We have reached out within our community, as well as expanded to other communities, to present the
rich musical heritage of the Blues, American's only true home-grown art form.
