Who Are the MBAS?
The Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society (MBAS) was formed in 1990 and has been affiliated with The Blues Foundation in Memphis USA for over 10 years.
We are a not-for-profit organization which has a weekly Online Update, our own functions and weekly feature artists and jam nights.
Members receive a comprehensive monthly newsletter which provides you with informative updates on what our Blues community is up to and advertises member musician gigs. Membership also entitles you to discounts at a variety of co-operating businesses, MBAS functions and affiliated club functions. More importantly, membership supports live Blues music.
MBAS activities include Tuesday Night Feature Artist and jam night, Youth In Blues, Blues Performer of the Year, Victorian Tasmanian Blues Music Awards and other fund raising events throughout the year.
Blues On The Move
The MBAS continues to grow and it's influence is acknowledged by the large family of Blues artists that have succeeded both nationally and internationally and the ones that have just started their journey.
