Chicago Blues Festival - Windy City Blues Society

Thank You, Everyone!

The 2014 Chicago Blues Fest is now a cherished memory. Just a short note to say a heartfelt thank you to:

  • the incredible musicians who played at our stage and made it the place to be at the 2014 Chicago Blues Fest
  • our generous sponsors—Alligator Records, Earwig Music, Blind Pig Records, Cermak Produce and the Blues Festival Guide
  • our tireless volunteers who worked long and hard at our booth and
  • the enthusiastic fans, who came, supported the music and, in the process, had the time their lives!

Keep supporting the blues and live music!

2012 WCBS Booth at the CBF

We are planning our 2014 Street Scene Stage at the annual Chicago Blues Festival (JUN13-15).

 

Each year we host a stage with live Blues and a booth, three full days of fun at the festival this year!

We need volunteers to help us staff our booth selling memberships, t-shirts, buttons and other merchandise.

Volunteers work two or more hours and get a free WCBS Staff t-shirt, a $15 value!). It’s a lot a fun, great music and a great way to meet other Blues fans.

Complete/submit our Volunteer form to get your name on the list…
