Hello Rhode Island Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society Friends
We're Back ----
It's been a while since we've been able to offer any programming. We are pleased to announce that RIRBPS will be hosting our Annual R&B Heritage Month Celebration on Friday, August 27 at the CV Club, East Providence, RI. More details to follow.
This event will showcase our comeback with R&B music and dancing, Instruments for Children's Program display, a raffle, information about our programming and a call for volunteers.
As a membership organization we did not ask for membership donations during the covid crisis. Our new membership year begins on July 1. We ask that you consider renewing your membership or joining for the 1st time. The Membership Application is attached or you may renew your membership on our website, http://www.bluespreservationsociety.org.
During this hiatus our founder, Dr. 'Prof' Ed Coates, began the process of making R&B the Official Music of the State of Rhode Island. The link below provides information about this action. The determination is still in process and we hope to announce the official designation soon.
Again, we are pleased to offer new programming and look forward to seeing you on August 27.
Thank you for your continued support of the Rhode Island Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society.
Sylvia Whiting, Secretary
Rhode Island Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society
