Welcome

 San Angelo Blues Society

PO Box 2779, San Angelo, Texas 76902

There is a vibrant music scene in San Angelo, Texas and the San Angelo Blues Society is  proud to lead the way in promoting the Blues.

We are the only Blues Society in the West Texas area that is an active member of the Blues Foundation, Memphis, Tennessee. And we think that is kinda special. We have a ball working hard to promote the Blues . . .so much that we won the City of San Angelo’s  Spirit Award for our ‘Simply Texas Blues Festival’ we produce the second Saturday of each May. (See the Simply Texas Blues Festival tab for  2014 festival details.)

We invite you to dive on into our site to explore all things  Blue in our fair city and hope that where ever you may be that you share in keeping the Blues alive within your community.

FaceJam is an innovative new way to organize and promote all types of local jams and open mics. For those that have been to jams before (whether to play or listen) it can some times be hit or miss. Either too many guitarists and not enough drummers or no singers or same singers every week singing the same old song. The driving force behind FaceJam is the Jam calendar. Jammers are no longer dependent on the luck of the draw as to when and if they will get to play.

Once registered you can sign up online up to a month beforehand to sing or play. The venue owner or house band will post the songs from our extensive (and growing) list of blues,jazz, classic rock, funk,punk and whatever. You sign up to play and once the jam’s administrator approves, the list is posted. Fans and venue patrons can visit the calendar without needing to register and see who’s playing and when. All the jams can be tagged and posted on Facebook. A great way to spread local music and create a buzz at your local music venue!

I am shocked that the board has turned down Ramirez-Lindemann for the Blues Festival on May 10th. David Lindemann and Richard Ramirez have 90 years experience all told, plus Richard won 3 years ago. Tucker Wyatt is an accomplished guitarist as is the drummer an accomplhed musician. Why would you choose to exclude hometown, homegrown guys whom all of us love to listen perform! Shame on you! I feel that you should go on bended knee asking them to join the festival! Wait til everyone hears about this!
