The Nature Coast Friends of Blues, Inc., as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charity, will protect the integrity of the annual Blues‘N' Bar-B-Que, we will give back to the community by annually naming a beneficiary of the Blues’N' Bar-B-Que, and we will preserve and emphasize the rich history of the Blues through other live music events, educational endeavors and museum exhibits at the Museum Cafe.  WWW.NCFOB.COM



The Nature Coast Friends of Blues, Inc. formed in 2007 after Jim Anderson, owner of the Olde Mill House Gallery and Printing Museum and event organizer of the Blues‘N' Bar-B-Que called it quits. 


First-time attendee Susan Mitchell saw the need to keep this event alive so, after a few phone calls Jim set up an impromptu Saturday blues jam session in the Garden behind the Museum Café. By that afternoon, a group of volunteers signed up to help get the association off the ground. Local attorney, John Clardy helped us get our non-profit corporation status. 


Our success allowed us to donate to various beneficiaries. Read more.....
