Blues Bands & Musicians

The Musicians and bands are what keeps the music flowing. We want to support them as much as possible because without them, well, there just wouldn’t be any music! Go to their pages, buy their music, Like their pages on Facebook, do what you can to offer support. Bands, if you would like a listing on our website, how about considering getting a Band Membership ($20 per year) to help us keep this website and the Society going.

Members Croix Stone – 17, and Ava Adams -14, have been playing music together for over a year, and traveled to Memphis in 2016 to play the clubs of Beale Street with other youth musicians. In the spring of 2016 they joined forces with Brook Jones –15, and Christian Taylor – 14 and formed A STREET BLUES.
