The St. John Blues Society was formed by co-founding members Ronnie Klingsberg (AKA owner of Ronnie’s Pizza) and Ian Samuels along with Symone’ James and Stephanie Whitener. They partnered with the Rotary Club of St. John who helped sponsor the event and all donations to the St. John Blues Blowout are tax deductible.
The blues fans were inspired to organize the concert in order to bring some great music to the island but also to benefit the community of St. John. This year the proceeds from the St. John Blues Blowout will benefit the St. John School of the Arts and Sprauve School. Funds will go to provide much needed scholarships to St. John students to attend the School of the arts and keep the music alive and to provide funds to support projects at Spauve School.
