What we're about
Florida Bluesiacs - Damn right, we got the blues!!
Welcome to the Florida Bluesiacs home page!
We are a 'Social Group' of people who love Live Blues. We are dedicated to be very active in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas to support our local blues artists and venues.
We enjoy and promote our local Blues musicians and venues by attending their shows, eating their food and drinking their beer (or wine)!. We welcome you to join us. We will have events at clubs, festivals, and on private property. One excellent way to support local Blues is to join The Suncoast Blues Society. We will be working with them as supporters and volunteers for all things Blues.
Locally, be ready to go everywhere from Skipper's Smokehouse to Vinoy Park, to the Palladium Theatre and all other venues who book live blues. Nationally, we will recommend a few trips to selected festivals around the country from The IBC in Memphis to The Blues from the Top Festival at Winter Park, Colorado to the storied King Biscuit in the Mississippi Delta. Internationally, don't forget the 7-day Legendary Blues Cruise, Check the calendar often for our posted events.
We do not require membership dues but we have instead opted for a voluntary annual contribution of $10.00 accessible through the "Chip In" icon on the group homepage. All contributions will be used to help pay our MeetUp.com server and maintenance fees, ain't nobody getting rich here! Any member who makes a contribution will be rewarded by having the official (and impressive) honorarium of "TRUE BLUESIAC" bestowed upon their member profile for all to see for the rest 2017!
So Join us often, sign up for events when you can, invite your friends, introduce them to the Blues. It’s all about Great Live Music, Good Times and Friends! This is YOUR Group! Your input and suggestions are vital. Help us 'Keep the Blues Alive'. Any questions? … contact me through the meetup website. your ideas for events or venues always welcome ...
