The NJBA is committed to the long-term administrative and financial support of the SOUTH MOUNTAIN INTL BLUES FESTIVAL, an annual free-to-the-public concert event.

The festival serves as an ongoing preservation mechanism of the uniquely American art form that is THE BLUES, and the NJBA provides ongoing support through cultural and educational activities which promote, enhance or expand the narrative around THE BLUES, its roots and ongoing historical and societal relevance.

Please join us for the North Jersey Blues Alliance 2017 BLUES MUSE III Nonprofit Fundraiser.  This year we are back at the lovely and inviting Firehouse Gallery in the Valley Arts District. It will be better than ever.
