Hello from your Capital Area Blues Society. All if us here hope you are healthy, safe, and staying sane with a lot of on line blues music watching and listening.

The pandemic has changed a few things at CABS. This includes:

Our Blues Brawl is indefinitely postponed. If the Blues Foundation decides to host an International Blues Competition this winter, then we will have a Brawl to choose a band and solo / duo act to represent Mid Michigan in Memphis. Or maybe we’ll have a Brawl anyhow. Stay tuned!

Also, WLNZ is not able to host live programming, so there is no CABS Radio This makes us sad. There seemed to be a possibility of the station being closed, as LCC considered cutting funding. But that didn’t happen. You can read more HERE.

It appears live gigs are beginning to creep back into our community. If you attend, please be safe, and respect the safety of the artists and audience. And share some pictures of the gig and your experience on our Facebook Page!

If you’re a musician, send Gord your gig listings! The best thing is to share these directly with him at – Gordzilla’s Blues is CABS Official Calendar. If you don’t already receive Gords’ awesome email calendar, write him and ask to be added.

Our Board meetings have been held on Zoom. If you want to participate, or want to share any thoughts with us, we’re just an email away. –
