Blues News You Can Use!
Behind Closed Doors
   
Hummm, you say. What might this be about? Well, honestly I just wanted to catch your attention and point out something that gets overlooked in the effort to promote local music and events....the monthly board meetings of Ozark Blues Society. These meetings have always been open to all members of the society and under our bylaws will continue to be so. We don't meet behind closed doors (with the rare exception of occasional personnel issues or certain other topics of an internal nature.) Not a member but are interested in attending a meeting? You may bring your $15 membership fee and join at the meeting or go online before the meeting and sign up at www.ozarkbluessociety.org
Most months we meet on the second Tuesday of the month in the atrium meeting area at the Springdale Holiday Inn. I will begin adding upcoming meeting dates to the calendar of events but you can always email me (Sandy) or our board President Liz Lottman (Liz Lottmann) for more information.

Below you will find articles highlighting
our new OBS Events Page on Facebook, Next weekend's Eureka Springs Blues Festival (it's not too late to volunteer!)
and information about this year's
Bella Vista Blues Festival.
Thoughts and ideas? As always,you can email me anytime at the address below. We LOVE our readers and want to see
your ideas included!

Facebook Events Page
Frequently we receive contacts from bands playing shows in the region or sharing CD releases and other exciting news. We love hearing from everyone and we want to support your endeavors, however we reserve our OBS Facebook page timeline for events OBS is partnering in as well as blues news of national interest. 
At the suggestion of our sister society (Spa City Blues Society) president, Larry Glover, we have decided to run a separate Facebook page for YOUR events.
Postings to the timeline are open to everyone. We ask that posts be blues related. They may include, your events and festivals, your band news, and items of interest to blues bands and fans. Ozark Blues Society reserves the right to edit or remove posts that don't follow guidelines and/or are not family friendly.
