more about sabs events

Fiesta Blues Heritage Series
An eclectic presentation of blues and blues influenced music, this event funds various SABS projects, including " Blues in the Schools " and the " Sam Baird Scholarship " fund. It is the perfect combination of San Antonio ' s beautiful spring climate and the soulful sounds passed down through the generations. Besides a show full of music there is also the awarding of the Sam Baird Scholarships. This all day celebration of music and scholastic recognition is held in April.

Robert Johnson SA Sessions
This event pays tribute to one of the founding fathers of blues music. We celebrate the recordings Robert Johnson did here in San Antonio back in 1936 at the historical Sheraton-Gunter Hotel, including " Sweet Home Chicago " , " Cross Road Blues " , and " Ramblin ' on My Mind " . The festival is an annual SABS November event.

Sunday Afternoon Blues Jam
Our long standing tradition of an open Blues Jam in San Antonio continues to attract many great Blues players from the area, along with lovers of the Blues! The Jam happens the first Sunday of every month at The Cove. We draw from our great Member Artists to host each Jam, opening and closing the show. In between we invite Blues players to come up and join in on the fun.

SABS CoProductions and other events
Many of our sponsors are actual music venues where many great national, regional, and local groups perform their Blues. At many of these shows SABS is on-site to let everyone know more about us and what we do. Shows that we co-produce will have us there with our line of Blues merchandise. We email weekly electronic calendars during the month to let everyone know who ' s playing where.
