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.

We host Blues Jam Sessions on the last Sunday of each month, from 2-6pm at the Ironwood . Local and visiting musicians are invited to participate — bring your axe and a blues 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!

Tony Holiday

“Blending the cool blues-rock of acts like The Black Keys and North Mississippi Allstars with a Memphis soul sound, Holiday captures the mood and feel of the place where he now resides.”-GLIDE MAGAZINE March 2023


There’s something about Tony Holiday that draws people together. In fact, community has been at the core of Holiday’s young career from the beginning. Since relocating from Salt Lake City to Memphis in 2017, Holiday has been at the center of a soul blues revival in Memphis, anchored by a contingent of young, savvy well-schooled musicians with a “family-like” attitude and a strong belief in one another. Mentored by past legends, Holiday and this loose Memphis collective are building on the city’s rich traditions and carrying them forward.
