The Texoma Blues Society (TBS) was founded in 2018 to bring the best blues musicians from around the world to Texoma! TBS specializes in intimate, listening room experiences where the performer directly engages an audience attuned and attentive to musicianship. We are continuing this tradition in 2020 in collaboration with Ghost Town Arts Collective to expand our audience. Join us and experience listening to live blues artists in great venues like our listening room and occasionally at larger partner venues that would like to sponsor a blues performer or band. Join us and help us keep the blues alive! While tickets are available to the broader public, we hope you will consider becoming a member and support our goal to bring an appreciation of great blues to our community. Together with your support we are hoping to develop community programming beyond our concert events, such as “Blues in the Schools”, and blues workshops. Blues musicians seeking to perform in Texoma may contact Program Manager Monica Muil via email at There are no other agents or representatives with authority to book bands or performers for Texoma Blues Society Program Events and Shows.
