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.

El Dorado - fun jams near home, good neighborhood atmosphere. Pho Cao - great stage, fun jams w/ Gypsy & also JC. Rhythm Room-- nice stage. good sound. long history as blues club. thank you Buzz for your invitation & hosting this group!

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 as they read this site's posts.)

not sure... perhaps get out of bars & into the fresh air more often... like picnics, outdoor festivals.

What are your favorite Blues venues anywhere outside of the valley, and what do you like about them?

i don't get out of the valley much

Besides hearing or playing Blues, what activities might you enjoy or support by attending, if offered through this group?

mostly dances & jams!

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.

sure. could do sometimes... :)
