Heart-felt appreciation goes out to Scott Kirk and his team for their support of BSO, BluesEd, and Blues Music. Unfortunately, while Blues shows were generally well-attended, it was not enough to keep the doors open.
The Thursday Blues Matinees will be moving to Chrome Lounge (8552 Park Drive) for the months of February and March. BSO and Chrome Lounge will discuss extending our partnership further, after having presented several shows.
The Thursday Blues Matinees and The Blues Society of Omaha both began in 1996 at the venue at 96th & L St., which was then known as The 18th Amendment Saloon. The series moved to The Music Box (7777 Cass St.) in 2000, returning to 96th & L as Murphy’s Lounge in 2002. The series moved to SHAG (707 N. 114th St.) in 2006, until noise complaints after a couple of months sent it back to 96th & L St., where it has continued ever since. The 21st Saloon operated 2012-2017.
Highlights of The Blues Matinee series include legendary (now deceased) artists Junior Wells, Buckwheat Zydeco, KoKo Taylor, and Magic Slim.
