Live and Virtual Blues Alert

Live and Virtual 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. 

Please note: we only promote Blues Music on this site. 

NOTE: We are trying to update this as best we can.  PLEASE check with venues and bands for the the most updated info and use your best judgment. It’s hard to get confirmation from small business owners who are trying to  revive their businesses and musicians trying to book gigs. Thanks for your patience.
