A big thank you to all who attended our Mardi Gras Dance Party and silent auction. The event was a huge success with over 200 people in attendance at a new venue, Center Court Grill. Awesome music was provided by local favorites The Blues Monsters and Bay Area standout Maxx Cabello, Jr.

Thanks to the board for their help with the silent auction and the event as well as the members who volunteered that night including Pam Farmer, Dale Kindall, Linda Newberg and Barb Scott. We raised just over $1,000 for school music programs with a variety of gifts, musical instruments, dinner and show packages, professional services.

Reno Blues Society Partners with Go Solar Group

GoSolar logo

The Reno Blues society has teamed up with the Go Solar Group and has an opportunity to earn $500 for every solar installation when an RBS member mentions this promotion to them. And to make it even sweeter, any RBS member who does an install with Go Solar Group gets a special discount on their solar system.

RBS Treasurer Dennis Ratto, a sales associate for Go Solar Group, would welcome the opportunity to explain the benefits and cost savings of solar to any RBS member interested.

Reno's roots are all about the blues, and while Go Solar Group loves the blues genre, they don't want you singing them in your home after you receive your monthly power bill from NV Energy. Even if you aren't interested in going solar yourself, if you know of someone who is considering it, the RBS can still earn the $500 if the person you refer to Go Solar Group mentions this partnership.

Just contact Dennis Ratto at This promotion currently has no ending date.
