The Sacramento Blues Society was founded in 1979 and is one of the oldest blues societies in California. Affiliated with the International Blues Foundation in Memphis, SBS was named Affiliated Blues Society of the Year and was honored with the Keeping The Blues Alive award at the 2015 International Blues Challenge. 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. We provide educational opportunities for young people with our “Blues In The Schools” program. SBS also maintains a Gene Chambers Musician’s Crisis 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.
