VBS Blues Calendar –  August 5, 2020

Dear Victoria Blues Society family and friends:

Although you have not heard from us lately, we are thinking of you all, and missing our blues shows and jams just as much as you are. We have all been waiting for our current situation to ease up, and some direction as to when things will be safe to start back up.

Some bars and pubs have opened up on a limited basis, however the logistics of making our blues shows safe, and the vulnerability of some of our blues musicians and fans have made it impossible for us to proceed as we have in the past.

This situation will change, but  when that may happen no one can say right now. There is still concern about a second wave of infection, and the latest outbreaks are primarily related to gatherings in bars and parties.

When things do change for the better, no one will be happier than the VBS, and we will let our blues family and friends know as soon as possible about getting things started again. Until then, follow Dr. Bonnie Henry’s advice, Be Kind, Be Calm and Stay Safe
