A Few Thoughts...

Most of us know what our budgets are. We are now restricted from going out and spending our "extra" money at the clubs that we all love. Please consider the needs of others during this time. Sharing your resources with others who are in need will show your strength and your commitment to our community.

We all know that many of the musicians and venues in our community are in need of our generosity. Many musicians are doing live streamed events that allow you to tip or to donate to them.

There are organizations that are set up to help artists in need, for example:
Springboard for the Arts
Twin Cities Community Trust
30-Days Foundation

I also encourage you to donate to Second Harvest Heartland. If you know of others, please email their information to us at so that we can publish their names.

We all want to be able to get out and see each other again and there will be great joy when we can. Please make sure that will happen by giving what you can.

Please stay safe and stay healthy until we meet again.

Live Music, the COVID-19 Pandemic, and Blues Fans

Like it or not, these are not ordinary times. Due to the closing of bars and restaurants in Minnesota, The Minnesota Blues Society is not presenting a calendar of gigs at this time. We will resume publication of a gig calendar and weekly Blues Note emails when venues reopen and gigs are happening again.

In the mean time, please take good care of yourself and others in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Minnesota Blues Society is not an authoritative source regarding this new disease. Authoritative information is evolving as more data become available to experts. We do encourage you to follow expert advice as it develops and to obtain current guidance from reliable sources such as the following.
