SCVBS Board of Directors



Who we are and

what we are about

​The Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society was established in 2003 and is one of the younger Blues Societies in the world.  We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and we are affiliated with the international organization "The Blues Foundation" in Memphis, Tennessee.


Our mission is to preserve and promote the Blues music art form. We will accomplish this with many ongoing society events. We support the local Santa Clarita Valley Blues Community, the Ventura County Blues Society, and Los Angeles Blues Society through this website.

We will be publishing society-member band links and gig schedules, monthly blues jams and other events as well as fundraisers and concerts.


Come and check us out at our next monthly "2nd  Sunday Blues Jam" at the Newhall American Legion Post 507.  See our Calendar and Events page for any schedules pertaining to the SCV Blues Society and community.


If you have a passion for the Blues, we would love to have you in our membership.  You do not have to be a musician to join, just have an appreciation for the Blues and love to have fun!

Letter From The President

The Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society is one of many Southern California Blues Societies. I am proud to be the President and leader of an active board of directors. The new SCVBS board of directors will be directing this organization to its full capacity.  We are now heading in the right direction, but it will take some time to right the ship. If you love the Blues, as we do and would love to help us please step on up and join the fun. Your input and involvement will be greatly appreciated.Please feel free to discuss any issues with Vice President Ralph Nazarian, Secretary Evie Cook, Treasurer Julie Kuritzkes, Ron Baker or any one of our other talented Directors.

Our Membership is filled with some of the most Talented, Caring and Thoughtful people in the World - if you need a hand they will lend it, if they have a contact they will share it and together we will make it happen! That's what makes us Strong, that's what will make us healthy, and that's what will make us one of the Best Blues Society in the World!

The SCVBS board is moving forward with our Goals at a brisk pace. Now is the time to jump in and Chair a Committee or Volunteer to help at one of our many Endeavors. Together, we will surely move forward to success.                  Thank You...Chuck Strong                   12/1/2016
