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.

Band on June 21st and 22nd, Cecile Doo Kingue on July 19th and 20th; Sue Foley on Aug 19th and 20th and Terry Hancks on Sept 7th and 8th.
