Band Memberships

Dear Band Leaders, Band Managers, and agents:

Recently, the Las Vegas Blues Society revised its website and we are now offering a great advertising incentive to local bands. Join the Blues Society as a local band and we will include your band pic or band logo as well as a link to your website!

Our website receives thousands of hits per month as well as a readership of over 2,000 blues fans who either live in Las Vegas or visit here looking for local live music. For only $50 per year, your band will receive 24 – 7 advertising. Compared to other advertisers, you will receive an ad for the WHOLE YEAR as opposed to just one month!

Your membership will also help fund our Musicians Emergency Relief Fund and our school based music assistance fund. Be a “community minded” band and join the Las Vegas Blues Society now!

Be one of the first to take advantage of a great advertising opportunity and a chance to be involved in helping your community at the same time.

How to join? Just go to our website and click onto the ‘become a member’ membership link. Choose band membership and be sure to contact one of our board members so that we can add your photo, website link and other info to our website! That’s all there is to it!

We look forward to your participation!

Yours truly,

Jeff Kallman, President
Tina Merced, Membership Chair

Las Vegas Championship RibFest 2015

Las Vegas, Nevada – The Nevada Barbeque Association (NVBBQA) will present the first annual Las Vegas Championship RibFest 2015 taking place at Bass Pro Shop-Outdoor World on June 6th, 2015, for the benefit of the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation (www.theburnfoundation.org).


NVBBQA is proud to bring the Las Vegas Championship RibFest to Bass Pro Shops. The Las Vegas Championship RibFest will pit amateur rib masters against competition rib teams as well as popular local restaurants for the coveted title of

Best Ribs in Las Vegas 2015’.


Competitors and venders on site will provide sample ribs for purchase to the public and more BBQ menu items will be available including rib plates, pulled pork sandwiches and brisket dinners. This is a family friendly event with a Kid’s Zone, cooking demonstrations and live musical entertainment. Admission and parking are free.


The event will open to the public at Saturday morning at 11:00 AM until after the awards ceremony at 6:00 PM. The cash prize for the ‘Best Ribs in Las Vegas 2015’ is $2500 and trophies for the top winners. Judging will be done by a panel of BBQ judges. A People’s Choice Award will be determined by a separate panel of everyday rib lovers at the event and features a $500 prize and trophy.


Who has the best ribs in Las Vegas?


“We intend to settle this question once and for all” remarks Steve Overlay, of the Nevada Barbecue Association and winner of multiple Rib Championship Titles. “We are proud to partner with Firefighters of Southern Nevada to contribute to their efforts help support burn victims and their families” continued Overlay. “Proceeds from the competition entries, donations and corporate sponsorships go directly to the BurnFoundation.org”.
