The Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society, established in 2003, is one
of the younger Blues Societies in the World. We are a 501(c)3
nonprofit organization and are affiliated with the International
Organization "The Blues Foundation" in Memphis, Tennessee.

Our mission is to preserve and promote the Blues music art form.
We will accomplish this with many ongoing Society Events.

We support the local Santa Clarita Valley and Los Angeles Blues
scene thru this website, Member Band links & gig notices, our
"Blues Friends" email list, Society member email list, Weekly
"Blues News & Shows" Newsletter, Online Calendar, Monthly Blues
Jams and other Events, Fundraisers and Concerts.

Also, we are in the midst of implementing our new "Blues In The
Schools" Program and are looking for volunteers to help us teach
our youngsters about the History of Blues Music.

Come and check us out at our next Monthly Pro Blues Jam at Vincenzo's
Pizza in Newhall, CA. to find out what we are doing and join in.

See the
Calendar & Events page or the for time and dates of our
Monthly Open Blues Jams.
