To all our patrons and musicians:

    April 15th 2021

    A very valid question these days is "Is The Blues Can still open?"  Answer:  Yes.  We are still alive albeit barely.

Bad News:

    More government closures.  Ugh!  The Blues Can has been forced closed again in order to try and rope this awful virus in.

Good News:

    It is that time again ... that's right folks ... finally ... THE PATIO IS OPEN!!!  We are very happy to announce the opening of our parking lot patio.  For now at least we only have recorded music but we may be permitted to present live music outside again soon.  We of course still have take-out including off-sales up until our curfew of 10pm.

    Our survival is anything but guaranteed under the awful circumstances and restrictions we are operating under.  We are not simply a restaurant or bar.  We are a live music venue that has traditionally specialized in unique musical acts both local and brought in from all over the world.  

    We, just like our peers, need help and every little bit makes a difference.  Please if you have any extra consider sending any amount at all to donate@thebluescan.com or use the "Donate Now" button below to contribute via PayPal or credit card.

    Stay tuned for more information on our Bluesathon fundraiser on May long weekend.  We are trying for 48 straight hours of performances by all your favorite artists from all over the world as well as our fantastic local acts.  More information coming soon.

The following restrictions are currently mandated:

-No indoor service.
-Face coverings required unless seated.
-6 people maximum per table.
-Tables 2 Meters apart.
-Contact information must be collected from at least 1 person per table.
-Last call 10pm dining ends by 11pm.
-No entertainment (live music) allowed.

    For any politicians/lawmakers reading this:

    PLEASE, Please please talk to experts about the safety of small scale musical performances and consider the fact that performers are no more dangerous than any other distanced interaction between humans outdoors.  Also remember singing on stage is SAFER than singing by a choir which is currently allowed in churches INDOORS!
