Revised HBS AGM Date 2020

Because the government has extended COVID-19 lock-down to midnight 27 April, and moving to Alert Level 3 with restrictions – to be reviewed 11 May 2020, it is not really possible to have our Annual General Meeting on Thursday 14 May.

The HBS Committee voted to move the AGM to 11 June 2020.

Further details will be sent to you closer to the date but at the moment:

  • Thursday 14 May - is the cut-off date for receipt of nominations;
  • Thursday 23 May - all nominations will be shared with members.

Keep up to date by monitoring the HBS NZ Facebook page.

Details on how to submit nominations and proxy voting will be sent out during the next few weeks.


Hamilton Blues Society meeting at Diggers BarFor just over 20 years local Kiwi musicians have been performing the blues live in Hamilton on the second Thursday of the month. We welcome new-comers to the monthly Blues Nights at Biddy Mulligan's Irish Pub in 17B Hood Street – kick off is typically 7:30pm.

You are welcome to pop in and check the scene out. Please feel free to sign up for regular updates and our bimonthly newsletter because there is much more bluesy stuff happening than just the monthly Blues Nights. We have regular Blues Showcases on the fifth Thursday of the month, as well as feature nights such as Ladies Sing The Blues in Hamilton. And the fourth Sunday of the month is a featured Blues Afternoon.

We are also affiliated with other blues societies and clubs in the vicinity viz: Auckland, Tauranga and Rotorua, and have had regular involvement in the Easter Tauranga Jazz/Blues Festival each year until 2019.
