Wichita Blues Society – Home Page

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.

If you are interested in the WBS board of directors or other volunteer activities, this is your opportunity to learn more and get your questions answered.

If you live outside of Wichita and can’t make the meeting, contact us at wichitabluessociety@gmail.com to get the convo started!

B.I.T.S. Program


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.

    GA - 20

    8:00 pmThe Red Shed Music Venue

    GA-20 clearly is on to something big. It’s a movement, a new traditional blues revival. The dynamic, throwback blues trio are disciples of the place where traditional blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll intersect. “We make records that we would want to listen to,” says guitarist Matt Stubbs. “It’s our take on the song-based traditional electric blues we love.” Stubbs and guitarist/vocalist Pat Faherty, and drummer Tim Carman have been at the forefront of this traditional blues revival since they first formed in 2018. It’s no wonder they skyrocketed to the top of the Billboard Blues Charts.
