What is BITS?
Wichita Blues Society is “PASSING THE TORCH” TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF BLUES FANS. Through our Blues In The Schools program, kids explore the history of blues and groove to live music. In one of our interactive presentations, groups learn the 12 bar blues progression and the I, IV, V chord changes using hula hoops! If you are interested in a WBS sponsored BITS presentation for your school, contact us today.
Proud Member of The Blues Foundation
More so than any other form of music, Blues relies heavily on a grass roots network of urban or regional blues societies for support. These nonprofit, all-volunteer organizations provide an important backbone to the Blues and occupy a vitally important spot in the pantheon of Blues music. We are blues fans that band together to support the music we love!
2016 International Blues Challenge
Congratulations to the Blue Dirt Daredevils! They will represent the Wichita Blues Society in Memphis at the world’s largest gathering of blues musicians at the 2016 IBC January 26th through 30th held in venues on Beale Street.
