Join the Hudson Valley Blues Society!
The HVBS volunteer board works hard throughout the year to develop opportunities and programming for our community, such as our “Art and the Blues” held in April, in which we heard performances by Dave Keyes, Kevin Burt, and Felix Cabrera, a Guitar Building Workshop, and more. We are already booked for April 2023 for “Art and the Blues 2.” Keep an eye on our website
Our “Blues Blowout Anniversary” at the Towne Crier, in Beacon, held Saturday, November 12th was a huge success. We helped celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Towne Crier, as well as our 3rd Annual HVBS Blues Benefit, with an all-star award-winning lineup of musicians: Joe Louis Walker, Slam Allen, Albert Castiglia, Dave Keyes, Frank Pagano, and Jeff Anderson. Proceeds from this event will help us develop our Blues in the School programming.
We continue to hold our monthly Blues Jam on the 4th Wednesday of each month at the Studio Around the Corner in Brewster. Our HVBS “Road to Memphis” Challenge is held every June at Meadow Blues Coffee in Chester, which is our annual local competition for bands and solo/duo acts to compete at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
An Individual and Musician/Band Membership in the Hudson Valley Blues Society entitles you to reduced rates at HVBS-sponsored events, discounts on HVBS merchandise, and early notification of upcoming event announcements.
