BEFORE CONTACTING US FOR EVENT SUPPORT: We highly recommend you visit new "Jack's Blues Clues" Facebook group. Because Jack Cohen for decades maintained a substantial gig calendar for TGGBS and the entire Bay Area blues community, we have followed his model and created a new group that Daryl Hawkins is admin for now. Jack Cohen passed away in December of 2020. We encourage you to join the group, create an event, and make "Jack's Blues Clues" the co-host, and then the event will automatically appear in the "Jack's Blues Clues" calendar.
TGGBS EVENT SUPPORT POLICY: TGGBS is a non-profit all-volunteer organization, with a board comprised of working professionals with very limited free time. On any given night, there are hundreds of live music acts performing in the SF Bay Area; an impossible task to keep up with. Rather than play favorites, we limit our event promotion to the following circumstances:
1) LOCAL (SF Bay Area) Blues Festivals.
2) LOCAL Blues Events which offer a TGGBS Member Discount of $5 or more (ticket discounts are preferred).
3) Our own TGGBS Events, such as our International Blues Challenge (IBC) Events, Fundraisers, and TGGBS Jams.
If your event fits into Categories 1 or 2, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we're sending out an email newsletter before your event occurs, we may also add your event to the newsletter.
In addition, we encourage everyone to "Like" our Facebook page and post events there. We currently have over 3,000 followers.
Thank you for your support!
