Stockholm blues Society was founded in 1971 by blues interested people
here in Stockholm. Their aim was to organize concerts by American blues
artists. In 1974 the society had their first American in Stockholm, and
has since that time made a lot of concerts and tours with blues artists.
In 1980 we started working together with the restaurant Tre Backar -
first on fridays and later on saturdays. These concerts was ended at
the summer of 2001 because of neighbours complaining about too much
loud music and noice.
We moved to Tuckens Källare, Götgatan 85, where we during the two years were able to present Swedish blues every Saturday. Because of other plans from the owner
we were out of nowhere during the summer.
We moved to Skepps Bar, Skeppsbron 44 where we were allowed to stay one year.We have finally found a place where we are able to stay for a long time. It's called Cajento at the edge of Södermalm (Alsnögatan 11). We had also establish a co-working with Nalen and SAMI a project which now has ended. Cajento was renamed Danvikstulls Värdshus during 2005.At the moment we have concerts at Restaurant Skaal every second saturday and some concerts at Danvikstulls Värdshus.
Between 1978 and 1996 we issued a member paper called "Blåtryck". Now
we have a monthly paper - The Blues Guide. If you become a member of
the blues Society you will get the guide to your home adress.
To get a membership you have to pay 200 Swedish crowns yearly, to our
postgiro 8 65 28 - 7.
