The Capital Area Blues Society is happy to say we are back and producing events as we did before the COVID lockdown.

Last October 9th we held an electrifying evening of great blues at the Green Door for our annual CABS Blues Brawl, and we’d like to thank all the artists and the judges that participated. We congratulate Dead Foot Duo for winning the Solo/Duo category and James Reeser and the Backseat Drivers for being the winning band. Both acts will be heading down to Memphis Jan 24 – 28, 2023 to represent Mid-Michigan at the 2023 International Blues Challenge!

Don’t miss our next event November 20, 2022 at Lansing’s Green Door, 2005 E. Michigan Ave.  Join us for our annual Breaking Bread with the Blues supporting the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Doors open at 3pm with music from 4pm to 9pm. The evening’s line-up is Fragment of Soul, Kathleen Walters and the Bridge Street Band, Johnny D. Blues Band w/sg Freddie Cunningham, Gina Garner and the All Night Band, and the Lansing Blues All Stars. Admission is $10 and a non-perishable food item, but please feel free to bring as much food to donate as you are able. This year is on track to be an especially difficult season of food insecurity for our community.
