Check us out on Facebook and Twitter and LIKE us and FOLLOW.   We also have a Blues Jam page on Facebook with info about the host band and happenings for the upcoming weeks.  The jam is every Sunday, 4-8pm at The Queens Hotel, admission for a non-musician is $5.  Playing Musicians are free.   Occasionally, NBS co-sponsors events with the Port Theatre and together we have brought some major talent to Nanaimo.

We are always looking for volunteers to assist both on the Board of Directors and for the Summertime Blues Festival itself.  As you know, a non-profit society lives and breathes by its volunteers.  We need all skill and energy levels, so please let us know how you can help out.  We are always especially on the lookout for sponsorship and funding at any level.

Thank you again, we look forward to seeing you at upcoming Blues events.  The Jam at the Queens is a great place to start and to meet other like-minded Blues supporters.  See you there!
