About Us

The Sacramento Blues Society was founded in 1979 and is one of the oldest blues societies in California. The SBS has kept the blues tradition alive in the Sacramento area by promoting the local blues music scene, bringing international renowned artists to the region, and is an affiliated member of The Blues Foundation. We provide educational opportunities for young people with our "Blues In The Schools" program. SBS also maintains a fund to provide assistance to those member musicians who find themselves in a financial crisis.  Honor is paid to those who have come before through the Hall of Fame. Please check out each program and see what there is for you in the Sacramento Blues Society.

Gone but not forgotten...

It’s with great sadness that we report the loss our beloved Board Member, Daniel Hernandez. His sudden and unexpected passing has not only left a hole in our Board of Directors, but an even bigger hole in our hearts. Daniel was well known and well-loved within our Blues community. He was a strong participant in all our SBS activities, serving on the Board of Directors and ably carrying out the assignment of Volunteer Coordinator for our many events. We are devastated by his loss, and our hearts and sympathies go out to his wife Andi and his family. We miss him terribly!

Rest in Peace, Daniel.

If anyone wishes to contribute, there is a GoFundMe page set up for Daniel's final expenses
