The Blues Disciples’ mission is to entertain and then to help our friends and listeners better understand the importance of the blues music genre in our history and culture. Blues Disciples is a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation. Any and all income in excess of expenses to produce our shows goes to support other non-profit entities who are dedicated to fighting hunger in our communities and to supporting blues musicians needing assistance.
Primary among those we support are: 1) Meeting Essential Needs with Dignity (MEND) which is a non-profit network of food pantries in and around Newark, New Jersey. MEND serves more than 134,000 children, women and men annually and, 2) the non- profit Blues Foundation’s HART Fund which provides assistance to blues artists in need.
