Boise Blues Society ensures an active social calendar for local blues fans, organizing or co-sponsoring dozens of blues-focused events every year. For lots of videos of both our local and touring blues bands and artists presented by BBS, and a whole lot more great blues music, please see our YouTube channel.

Our annual Fat Tuesday celebration is a farewell-to-winter shindig featuring three to four local blues bands and plenty of dancing.

We host Blues Jam Sessions on the second Sunday of each month, from 3-6pm at Playhouse Boise. Local and visiting musicians are invited to participate — bring your axe and a song or two, or just come out and catch the wide variety of talented blues musicians.

Boise Blues Society actively seeks to promote touring blues musicians by showcasing them as they pass through Boise. We provide the venue and the audience, you provide the music!
