We continue to receive rave reviews from all the schools where we do our Blues in the Schools programs. Why not present an event at your school soon?  Here are more school testimonials for this year:

We loved having you here at Iowa. The kids talked about it all day and continue to talk about your performance. I had a music meeting and bragged to all of my colleagues about the quality show and the educational experience that my school received. Thank you for taking time to make Iowa “Bluesy”.

Les Bois Junior High thoroughly enjoyed the Blues in the Schools presentation! I could tell from the kids’ reactions that it was something new to them and they really enjoyed getting involved. The performers got members of the school band to improvise with them, the guitar class to play some chords with the blues progression, along with everyone singing some harmonies to the music. We even had a few other Les Bois staff stop by to watch and listen because they heard the music. Blues In The Schools is a great way to open up the eyes/ears of students to a whole new genre and history of music. Big thanks to Ken and his band!!

What a treat to have Boise Blues Society come perform at Roosevelt Elementary School today! All the teachers, staff and students had a blast! My students especially loved hearing about the homemade cigar box guitar and they could sing and dance along with the band! One teacher told me it was the best performance this school has seen in a long time! Blues In The Schools well exceeded my expectations in creating a fun and educational musical experience for all ages! Thanks Boise Blues Society! Come back any time!
