2020 has been a year unlike any other. Not being able to perform, or even practice has been a huge challenge for us, but the music is alive and well in our hearts and our minds. And we haven’t forgotten about you, our fans, who always get up and dance and cheer us on without fail. We hope you are happy and healthy and we look forward to the day when we can all get up and dance together! Stay safe and enjoy the holidays.
Bluesberry Jam is spending the winter working on new material for our spring and summer shows. We’re in the process of lining up our gig schedule so stay tuned! Did you know that Bluesberry Jam is entering its third decade as a band? With three original members left, a whole host of alumni, and a loyal following, this band is not just about the music but also about friendship and community. We thought you’d appreciate a look back at Bluesberry near the beginning. Thanks as always for your support, we love playing for you! New shows being announced soon.

Bluesberry was so pleased to participate in the inaugural Pride Squamish event. We had a fantastic time, hats off to all of the organizers at Pride Squamish! Even though there was some rain, we had a good crowd and the sun came out in time for Queer as Funk’s fantastic performance. Our own Bryan Davies even got up on stage and did a killer trumpet solo to “It’s Your Thing”. It was heartening to see so many people out in support of the queer community and we loved rocking our shiny new pride t-shirts!
Thanks for the photo, Rebekah Gusway!
