Our mission: to promote the blues in its various styles and variations, provide a platform for musicians to share their love of the blues.
For 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.
