Live Blues Alert 

While we do our best to provide accurate information, please check with the venue for the most up-to-date information. We recommend checking YouTube and Facebook for videos of any bands you’re unfamiliar with so that you can make informed choices. After all, music is a personal thing!

We invite you to share shows you learn about as well. That way we’ll have a one-stop shop for live blues music.   Bands ands venue operators:  Please Email calendarsubmit@madisonbluessociety.org to submit gigs.
