July ABS Meeting
It was an excellent, well attended meeting at The MoonShadow Tavern in Tucker, on Sunday.  Thank you to their hard working staff.  Also, thanks to the host band, the Andy Makely Band for kicking things off in fine style.  An enthusiastic bunch of jammers turned out; thanks to Lola for keeping the jam rolling. An ABS meeting is a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon!

June ABS Meeting

Sunday’s meeting at the Oyster Barn was very well attended and we were treated to the great big sound of the Gold Standard Band. Also joining us for the afternoon was the JP Blues Band as well as many talented and enthusiastic jammers. It’s always a treat to meet new friends and hear new musicians. If you haven’t attended a meeting lately, there’s so much you missed… including a chance at the raffle prizes.

The winners of the tickets to the Seth Walker show on Saturday June 28 were Wallace Mobley and Elliott Horner. Paul, the keyboard player for the Gold Standard Band, won a Taj Mahal CD compilation box set.

The Atlanta Blues Society, as a Blues Affiliate has pledged $1,000 to help make it happen -- check it out -- We are the latest member of the 250 Club!

Since its earliest days, the Foundation has envisioned a Blues Hall of Fame. Artist renditions appeared as early as the 1983 Blues Music Award program. Foundation leaders have long recognized that, in addition to stability and operating efficiencies, a permanent home for The Blues Foundation will dramatically improve its ability to fulfill its mission.

A key component for the success of any organization is a sound fiscal base from which to meet its goals and objectives. In recent years, The Blues Foundation has built such a base while continuing to fulfill its mission in each of the above noted programs and activities.

In 2006, the Foundation adopted a strategic plan that embraced a permanent home. The following year, with a grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis, the Foundation began work with Design 500 to discern requirements for and shape the new home—its location, size, space allocations, and programming priorities.

A suitable location was identified in December 2010—a condominium located at 421 South Main with approximately 3,800 square feet at street level and 7,700 square feet on the lower level. By this time, The Blues Foundation had quietly and steadily eliminated all debt and built reserves of more than $400,000. This financial strength enabled the Foundation to secure a short-term loan to help pay for the purchase of its new building and some basic renovations when this opportunity arose.

Foundation operations began there on July 5, 2011. With the first phase completed, The Blues Foundation continues to pursue its goal: a home that enhances the ability to carry out its mission.
