Can’t Stop the Blues Facebook Group
A little about why Long Beach Blues Society is fundraising:
This fundraiser is set up (for free) in conjunction with ‘Long Beach Gives’, an organization who invite local nonprofits to join in their day of awareness and fundraising once a year.
Money raised on Sept 24th goes directly to new programing setup to address issues caused by covid, these include:
– Free lessons offered to all Long Beach music students. Currently unable to take lessons during lockdowns, some amazing professional blues mentors have already signed up to tutor via zoom.
– Various professional blues musicians will be recording online classes which we will make available for free to the community via our website and focus on the artists creative niches.
– LBBS’s bedside beats program will be taken online and will offer music ‘fun hours’ to any kids who are unable to have visitors during Covid. We help normalize the environment.
All the above teaching will be conducted by out of work musicians, offering them an income during covid.
The fundraiser takes place on September 24th and will stream all day via Can’t Stop The Blues FB page:
We have great acts who have already submitted videos, from Robert Cray, Keb Mo, Sugaray to local artists, to the Valencia Blues Society in Spain to Hobsons from Australia!
