Join the Triangle Blues Society if you want more opportunities to hear, play and dance to live local blues. Here’s how we support the blues in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, N.C. area:

The Triangle Blues Challenge: TBS organizes this annual competition where jury-selected local bands and solo or duo acts earn a blues society-sponsored trip to the International Blues Competition in Memphis. Winners at the IBC qualify for their own record deal. Your donations to the Triangle Blues Society help make these blues dreams come true.

Regular blues jams: TBS sponsors regular blues jams in Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill. There’s no cover charge to attend, and the stage is open to any musician with their own instrument and a desire to play.

Co-sponsored shows and discounts: Triangle Blues Society also co-sponsors local shows featuring regional and national touring blues acts, with exclusive admission discounts for TBS members.

Community outreach: The society’s website and social media channels provide a free resource and platform for anyone playing, sponsoring or interested in listening to Triangle area blues performances. Educational activities seek to promote the blues to new and existing audiences across the community, and TBS also assists local musicians in need.

Annual membership in the Triangle Blues Society is just $10. These donations provide travel and lodging funds for the winners of our annual Triangle Blues Challenge so they can compete at the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

AT OUR EVENTS: Give a board member $10 cash at any TBS event, including monthly jams, the Triangle Blues Challenge or member-appreciation events. We also have a credit-card swipe machine.
