Bringing Blues Music to Community Events

MBS has sponsored and promoted many local Blues bands by arranging performances at numerous community events. This exposure really makes a difference for up and coming bands as more and more folks get to know them. MBS is privileged to have so many fine musicians in our area to choose from.

MBS is pleased to have offered our help to get Blues Bands playing at these great community events. Working with the organizers of these events makes connections that lead to more and more exposure for Blues music and our local musicians.
