Hi Blues Fans and Lovers!
In keeping my promise from last January, I am writing to keep in touch and to share some important information with each of you.
I am delighted to share that our group continues to grow by regular number. I also am delighted to see that more of you are beginning to RSVP to events. Those who have been members for a while might recall that I have shared how important this latter aspect is to our group. For others, I would like to say that our group’s activity is an important aspect of bringing value to you as individuals, as group members, and for our bands, Blues artists and entertainers.
In the first half of the year, I have actively solicited sponsors and group discounts for you. With a group as large as ours, we bring an attraction to local venues and businesses. When we have activity showing on our site, we add leverage to gain benefits from these businesses. Unfortunately, without activity showing on our site, those same businesses are unlikely to offer anything, including bringing in live Blues.
What benefits can you/we expect? Those cold be as simple as showing them that there is support to bring in live Blues bands- thus keeping Live Blue Alive in the valley. But our success also has given them a reason to offer discounts on show tickets, drink prices, etc. Naturally, you benefit when you attend and support the events and those Blues bands that are bringing live Blues to you!
I want to welcome our new members and to thank those of you, who remain in the group. I also want to thank those of you, who have commented, RSVP’d, attended, and volunteered to be the host or hostess for our events. Your support is truly appreciated beyond words. Activity continues to grow but I believe we can do better.
I have created a group page to show you, our statistics. Please visit it if you want to see how we are doing. While you are there, feel free to visit the Event Calendar tab for other events.

I encourage you to continue supporting our local Blues performers and those venues that support Live Blues… Add Blues events as you learn about them so we all can benefit. Go enjoy a Live Blues Performance. Go to a Blues Jam and introduce yourself to those musicians who are there, supporting the venues that support live Blues. (We love to meet our fans!) Volunteer to host a meet-up that you plan to attend. This latter activity is simple… 1) RSVP 2) Put up our VOSB sign and a few red balloons and 3) Greet and Introduce other members, who are looking to get to know other Blues lovers. (email me if you want to try this). Support our FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/ValleyofSunBlues. Support the Phoenix Blues Society http://www.phoenixblues.org.
Thanks again for keeping Live Blues Alive in Arizona!
