BLUES-GOES-GREENBy green, we mean eco-friendly. Beginning April 2013, the Central Iowa Blues Society Blues Crier will become an E-Newsletter and be delivered to your email. We’re excited about this change and the huge savings it brings with it by eliminating the printing and mailing costs. We plan to put those dollars to use in other worthwhile membership benefits–that are in the works.

Not all member email addresses are currently in our database. To ensure delivery of your E-Newsletter, please subscribe by completing the form in the yellow box at the right.


  • Some have not received membership cards for their new/renewal memberships. We are working on getting those caught up and devising a system to streamline that process. Please bear with us.
  • We’ve recruited long-time CIBS member and live music lover, Bryan Farland, to manage the CIBS calendar. We’re confident in saying, in Bryan’s capable hands, this is THE go-to list for live blues happenings in Central Iowa! Email your calendar submissions to
