The Kootenay Blues Society has had a big first year, a lot of fun and great success with the shows presented: The KBS Fundraiser (featuring local blues bands: Flaming Aardvark Trio, White Lightning Blues Band, Jon Burden and Friends, Baker Street Blues with Judy Brown); Sonny Rhodes Band (three shows); Sue Foley (with guests Baker Street Blues); Alabama Mike and Country Pete with Riverside Blues Band (5 shows); JW-Jones (with guests Holly Hyatt Band).  And our membership keeps growing!

We'd like to thank all those who came out and supported blues music in the Kootenay's and made these events the huge successes that they were. You all have enabled us to keep bringing you high quality blues from all over North America and we have some exceptional shows planned for 2019.

 Our next presentation: Blues, Brews and BBQ on Mar. 2/19. TBA.

Tired of playing the same licks?  Still hitting the bad notes?  This course can put you on a path to re-inspire and re-build how you play the Blues.  Learn new techniques to build your awareness in improvisation to get the "right note" every time.  Also includes chordal development, rythm styles, analysis of Blues greats like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton and Albert King.

Guitar Player Magazine calls guitarist Ralph Buschmeyer "as smooth and sophisticated as James Bond taking a holiday in Monte Carlo" and Blues Review hails him as an "inventive musician."
