Where your dollars go:

Youth Development

We bring blues musicians into local schools to teach and entertain, free of charge. Being actively engaged in making music boosts cognitive function in kids, a positive effect that spills over into other areas of their lives. Blues music traditionally encourages spontaneous creativity within a loose structure that can be easily learned and infinitely varied, making it ideal for participation at any level of musical ability.

Community Building

Blues music has a long tradition of experienced musicians mentoring up-and-coming ones. Boise Blues Society carries on this tradition, hosting monthly all-ages jam sessions that engage the public even as they encourage local musicians to develop performance and teamwork skills.

We engage Boise blues music lovers and other members of the community on our Facebook page, through periodic emails to our mailing list about upcoming blues events, and at live events throughout the year.

We are committed to building mutually beneficial long-term relationships with local musicians, music venues, blues lovers, schools, and other businesses that see strengthening our community as part of their mission.
