The Wichita Blues Society was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1983 by a handful of blues lovers who wanted to revitalize the blues scene in the Wichita area. Since that time, membership has grown and the WBS is one of the oldest societies in the nation.

Blues In The Schools is an umbrella term used to describe a program that utilizes a classroom format to teach children about the Blues. Programs are not limited to schools or classrooms; they can be held anywhere.
Why Teach The Blues? The Blues is the first truly American music. With its roots in the deep South of the 1800s, it spread across the U.S., evolving based on the styles and preferences of the region, but always soulful and reflecting the human condition. From the acoustic blues of the front porch to the electrifying sounds of the Chicago Blues scene, it has been the major influence in jazz, rock and roll, and country western music. We can find common ground through the Blues.
Become a Member! Membership Fees help keep the blues alive! Wichita Blues Society members are a delightfully diverse group of people who have a love and appreciation for the Blues. If you have any questions about how you can participate, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
