The new Board now consists of President-Brenda Dirkes, VP-Linda Gertz, Treasurer-Chris Cowen (New), Secretary-Nancy Gertz (New), and Board members at large-Ben Bumbry and David Schaffer (New). The new Board is deep into preparation for the Upcoming Blues In The Schools Program (Nov. 11th & 12th) with Harper & The Midwest Kind, and the Fall Concert with Harper & the Midwest Kind on November 9th at The State Room. Details for the fall show are on the Live Events Page.
Along with the upcoming Blues In The School Program and Concert, the new Board is also looking to hold a BLUES CRUISE ON THE MISSISSIPPI (Riverboat Style) in 2014, and details will be announced for that as everything comes together. Also, the Society is also once again beginning planning for the Annual BLUE NOTE OPEN in Feb. 2014-the Saturday AFTER the Super Bowl (2014 date will be Feb. 8th 2014). Congrats to the new Board, and thanks to our former Board Members as well.
