Please join us for a gathering of Blues Societies from across the state as we showcase some of Texas' finest blues artists on the Kenny Dorham's Backyard stage.
The Story Behind this Event:
Each year SXSWeek brings thousands of music visitors to Austin for a week of live music and networking, fun, partying around music and the music industry. One thing we can count on is that SXSW will likely never make celebrating and promoting the Texas Blues Tradition a priority for their programming. It's not what they do. It's what WE DO.

So...the proposition here: What if Texas Blues Societies took it upon ourselves to offer an annual live performance, networking, community-building, good-fun time in Austin while in the midst of SXSWeek?

Well, that's the idea behind this event. it's a first shot to explore the possibilities. And if it continues into the future, DiverseArts, the East Austin Blues Alliance and the Austin Blues Society invite additional Texas Blues Societies to join us in planning to move this forward for the future. The Blues is Alright!

Big Thanks to the San Antonio Blues Society and Houston Blues Society for joining us for our first event!

Entry is free. Donations accepted to support the artists, Blues Societies, and production of the event. The venue and all sponsoring organizations are Texas nonprofits.
