“Madison Blues” was active from 1994 to 2000, sponsoring Blues shows, Blues in the Schools artists, library purchases, socials, fish fries and yearly Blues Calendars before the organization’s activities dropped off. In Spring of 2003, “Madison Blues” underwent reorganization and became very active again as the Madison Blues Society.


The Madison Blues Society (MBS) is dedicated to increasing awareness, understanding and appreciation of Blues music in America’s musical heritage. MBS works to expand the presence and vitality of the Blues in the Madison area through promotional events, educational programs, and strengthening links between the community and local musicians.


The Madison Blues Society is proud to support the goals of Black Lives Matter as well as other non-violent organizations that address racial inequalities and injustices. The Madison Blues Society commits to racial justice and reform. Music, and specifically blues, is an effective means of supporting these goals as blues has a strong foundation of representing the historical challenges that racial injustice brings.


As always, we love your feedback, suggestions, and ideas on how we can improve what MBS does for its members and the live blues scene in Madison and the surrounding region. Have a bit of time or a skill you’d like to offer? Even better! The more members get involved, the more MBS can do!
