Mission Statement
Since 1991 our goals have been to encourage appreciation of the blues, an original American music; to provide a forum in the Ozarks for performance of the blues at live events and on radio and television; to educate and entertain the people of the Ozarks; to provide an organization through which people can share their common love of the blues; and to join with similar organizations to accomplish the forgoing goals. 

The Great Ozarks Blues Society is an official 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation of America's Native musical art form - the Blues. The BSO is an official affiliate of the Blues Foundation, whom has made it their mission to spread goodwill worldwide through Blues music.
