About Us

The Windy City Blues Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 public charity registered and based in Chicago, IL. We are an all-volunteer organization and a proud affiliate member of the Blues Foundation.

Our mission is to:

  • preserve and promote blues music and the blues community;
  • support blues education; and
  • promote the Chicago area blues scene and its blues musicians.

We intend to connect all aspects of the Chicago blues community – artists, labels, blues clubs and fans. We also intend to leverage the Chicago tourism infrastructure to help support our local blues scene.

Join us today and help us honor Chicago’s blues history and build its future.
