What are your top two (or three) venues for Blues in the Valley of the Sun? What do you like about each, e.g. sound system, acoustics, service, location, parking, overall ambiance, etc. Non responsive (N/A type answers) will not be approved.

The Compound Grill great stage and acoustics-like the location and food,too- like the way the bands are treated, if a huge following attends, the bands have the opportunity for some okay money if a "cover" is charged. Bobby C's for food/ambiance!

What if anything, could be improved about Blues venues in the Valley? (Please no specific names, just general observations that might be helpful to all venue owners) Non responsive (N/A type answers) will not be approved.

Most the Blues venues need to be cleaned up and promoted. That's why we're here, right? Long live the Blues and those performers out there with a passion for it.

What are your favorite Blues venues anywhere outside of the valley, and what do you like about them? Non responsive (N/A type answers) will not be approved.

Beale Street in Memphis is amazing. In February they have The International Blues Challenge. In May they promote a Blues and Jazz Festival. The street is full of music in every club. It's a heavenly place for Blues lovers-highly recommend it.

Besides hearing or playing Blues, what activities might you enjoy or support by attending, if offered through this group? Non responsive (N/A type answers) will not be approved.

Festivals, Benefits

Are you interested in actively supporting or facilitating events in any ways? Such activities might include welcoming members at meetups.... maintaining a sign-in list at major events... answering questions from new members... or others.

Absolutely! Whatever I can do to help spread the love of BLUES and BLUES news sounds good to me!


I am Valley Bookings and Always looking for venue opportunities for the bands I represent in and around Arizona... Love the Blues and other genres as well. Focused on keeping my bands working; a productive band is a happy band!
