About Us

The SBBS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the preservation and advancement of the African-American blues tradition.  We sponsor and produce several major performances each year bringing national and regional blues stars to Santa Barbara – over 100 distinguished artists over the years since 1977. And we support the local blues scene through this website, the Blues Lovers email list, regular mail list, Blues News newsletter, other promotions, and informal gatherings.
If you would like more information about the Santa Barbara Blues Society please write, e-mail, or call us.
