— PwF Family and Friends —Life is a game of give and take — some days are a little better than others but we all have a choice to make the best of what we’re given. Right? Certainly, the past year and a half haven’t been without its obstacles for any one of you and we are right there with you! A couple of weeks ago we were relieved to announce Playing with Fire Free Summer Concerts were back and excited to present an extraordinary eclectic line-up assembled for our fans. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, PwF free concerts series are no longer on the books for this summer. We know, we know. We know you are ready to gather (safely) with your family and friends, we know you are craving to create timeless experiences together and want, even need, live music concerts. Well, when life gives you lemons you grab those sour babies and crush them into a sweet delicious drink, and that's exactly what we’ve done. You didn’t think we would let you go ANOTHER year without your summer music fix, did you? This year….. Playing with Fire presents a new sister concert series, MUSIC FOR THE CITY! Everything you know and love about PwF, music with the same great vibe, just smaller with a little more chill. We’re still talking about 3 different dates with numerous different artists all right here in Homaha. We want to give a BIG thank you to The Dam Bar @ Millers Landing for hosting this event and working with us to keep the music alive. As always this is a free event (donations always accepted) for all ages. Keep watching for updates and cool news as the PwF team is pounding away assembling all you need to know. Can’t wait? Check out the new website at Jeff Davis and The PwF Team MUSIC FOR THE CITY...Guaranteed to Make the Blues Hounds Howl!!! ... See MoreSee Less

This 2 day festival celebrates 20 years with another great line-up! It is staffed completely by volunteers and is a benefit for the children of Sedan, Kansas. It is especially good for campers and bikers. Set in the beautiful Chautauqua Hills, it's small town friendliness and big city blues talent. Check it out! Let's support live music. ...

Regarding Covid-19 and BSO events:
As the Health Department, City, and State are allowing venues to re-open, your BSO is again producing shows in and around Omaha.
The Blues Society of Omaha is concerned for the welfare of our members, guests, musicians, and the team-members of our venue partners. Everyone should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend shows during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19, and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit. Masks are encouraged and all venue restrictions must be observed.
All of our partner-venues will be enforcing all protocols that have been put in place by the Health Department, City, and State. Attendance will be limited to enable safe social distancing.
Regardless of your personal comfort level regarding going out to venues at this time, please be extremely considerate of invading other fans’ personal spaces.
We look forward to once again sharing great music with all of you!
June 3, 2020, the Douglas County Health Department posted this reminder: “Until there is appropriate medication and a vaccine, the Douglas County Health Department (DCHD) is emphasizing the importance of remembering and continuing to use the only ways we have to protect ourselves.
“Handwashing and social distancing remain important tools to avoid infection,” Health Director Dr. Adi Pour said. “You should wear a mask every time you go out in public to protect those around you.”
