A Blues Society for Denver

Denver is known as The Mile High City. When you think of Denver you think of the Denver-Aurora-Broomfield metropolitan area, which is circumscribed by the C470 and E470 freeways, the loop around our city. This is the Denver Metro area, and it is the territory the Mile High Blues Society is here to serve.

There are 2.6 million people in Denver Metro. There are thousands of blues fans and hundreds of blues musicians. There are several fine blues venues, and radio shows devoted to blues music. What Denver has not had, however, is a blues society that meets in this city and focuses its efforts and dollars on the Denver blues scene.

A blues society needs to be rooted among its members. Holding its meetings locally is important to establishing the identity of the organization. It is very hard for blues folks in Denver to travel to a different city to participate in blues society business. 

There are three other blues societies in Colorado:  One in Colorado Springs, one in Winter Park, and one in Boulder/Longmont. Occasionally they will stage events here, but their home bases are distant. A blues scene as cool and vibrant as we have in Denver deserves the dedicated support of its own blues organization.  That is what the Mile High Blues Society is all about, and that is why so many people are excited about it.
