RBS Turns 25 This Year!

We're planning a big celebration for our 25th anniversary this year and have reached out to West Coast slide guitar virtuoso and popular blues musician Roy Rogers and the Delta Rhythm Kings to play Saturday, August. 4th at the Ramada Inn. It's not confirmed yet but we're working with Roy and an angel investor to help us with the talent fee so we can raise some funds for the RBS and put back into music programs and blues events here in Reno.

Founding member Bob McNamara will put together an all-star jam of founding musician members as the opening entertainment with music from 7:30 to 11pm or so. Another original member and longtime board member, Linda Newberg, is putting together some bulletin boards with articles, posters, photos and memorabilia from our 25 years of existence.

If you have photos, flyers, old tickets, tee-shirts or something from our first 25 years you'd like to donate for this or let her use, please contact Linda at
