Our annual Membership Campaign Drive will begin on Sunday, February 24 with a great concert featuring the Ghost Town Blues Band at Barley’s in Maryville. Doors open at 3pm and music will begin at 4pm, until 7pm. The cost of the show is $7 for Active Members and $10 for non-members. We are so excited and proud to bring this awesome Blues entertainment to East Tennessee!
This year we are excited to present seven Blues Cruises with regional and headliner entertainment, and various special concerts headlined by top national bands. We continue our community service programs playing once a month at Samaritan Place, which provides assisted living for homeless seniors, as well as once a month at Ben Atchley Veterans Home. We will also be expanding our Blues In The Schools programs.
I hope these activities will motivate you to join our fun SMBS family, if you are not already an active member. All new members signing up during our Campaign will receive an SMBS T-shirt, a free meal ticket from Penn Station ($10 value) as well as FREE admission to the campaign ending show on March 24. Members also receive discounts at Knoxville Museum of Art’s Live After Five shows, various SMBS events, and on all of our riverboat cruises, plus Email notifications on upcoming events.
That’s a $37 value, not counting event discounts, for your $25 membership. Members who renew their membership will receive a $5 discount on an SMBS shirt. We make it easy to join or renew at our events and online at www.SmokyMountainBlues.org with PayPal or card.
Please consider joining or renewing your membership and enjoy participating in our activities. As we are a non-profit community organization, we thank you for your support to continue “Keeping the Blues Alive!”
