Please Help Save Independent Music Venues!

As you doubtless understand, many music venues are struggling to survive during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The U.S. Congress has provided financial support for many individuals and organizations during this time.

The Minnesota Blues Society encourages you to ask Congress to provide support to save independent music venues and thereby the future of local live music around our country. You can do so through the National Independent Venue Association at the "Save Our Stages" link below.

Thank you for supporting the Blues and all live music!
