About the Sacramento Blues Society
The Sacramento Blues Society (SBS) is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization formed to preserve and promote blues music as an art form.

The Sacramento Blues Society was founded in 1979 and is one of the oldest blues societies in California. In 2015, the SBS was awarded the prestigious "Keepin' the Blues Alive" Award from The Blues Foundation, an international organization headquartered in Memphis. Each year, The Blues Foundation presents the KBA Awards to individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to blues music. The KBAs are awarded by a select panel of blues professionals to those working actively to promote and document the music.

The SBS promotes the local blues music scene, bringing international renowned artists to the region, and is an affiliated member of The Blues Foundation. We provide educational opportunities for young people with our “Blues In The Schools” program. The SBS also publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, Blues Notes.
