So what the heck is the Oklahoma
The Oklahoma Blues Society is a nonprofit organization founded in 1989. We are a certified affiliate of the Blues Foundation, which is headquartered in Memphis, TN. (www.Blues.org) Our Mission is to preserve the rich history of the Blues by acknowledging the influence of the Blues on all forms of modern music and supporting Blues as an art form for future generations.
OK, so how exactly do you do that?
We support Blues by supporting the musicians who play it! We hold several public events throughout the year, as well as maintain a live music calendar to help inform the public of what’s happening in OKC.
What kind of events?
Our 2nd Sunday Jam is held every month, and is open to the public. It is currently hosted by Steve Coleman and the OBS All Stars, at OK City Limits, 4801 S Eastern, in OKC, every second Sunday of every month beginning at 5pm. We also participate in the International Blues Challenge.
What is the International Blues Challenge?
The international Blues Challenge is a giant battle of the bands. Blues Foundation Affiliates such as ours from around the world are eligible to have a local competition in their area. The winning band of each affiliate organization then has the opportunity to represent their club at the ‘big show’ in Memphis each spring.
What else do you do?
While we do like to party, play music, and have fun, we also try to give back to the greater community. We’ve partnered with other organizations such as The Mental Health Association of Central Oklahoma and Stand Up to Cancer, for benefit and awareness events. We also regularly hold drives for food, toys, and school supplies that are then donated to needy organizations like the Regional Food Bank, Toys For Tots, Infant Parent Intervention Center, and OKC area public schools.
How can I get involved?

Membership benefits include regular updates on events, discounts on merchandise, and a relevant connection to other Blues lovers not just in OKC or statewide, but all across the world!
