About SMBS

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) since November 2010. We are an organization dedicated to showcasing the incredible musical heritage in our region. We welcome new members and encourage participation from our nearby residents.

Our three main activities are as follows:

• Support other charitable organizations with funding and volunteers;
• Teach the history of blues through our Blues In the School (BITS) Program;
• Organize and put on local shows and festivals to showcase both local and national talent.

Mission Statement

“The Smoky Mountain Blues Society strives to preserve, promote and perpetuate Blues music and its heritage, and, by so doing, to help foster unity among people of all ages, races, creeds, and economic levels.”
