Lovers of blues music received a boost this week with the Bay of Plenty Blues Club trialling a new venue – the historic Blue Baths.

 

The club had for the past eight years been at the Belgian Bar in Arawa Street, which has closed for the winter, and was looking for a permanent venue to hold its monthly jams and other events.

 

Club president Shay Dender says Jo Romanes, the managing director of the Blue Baths, is very passionate about the arts in Rotorua and she offered the facility’s foyer for the jam night.

 

“It’s a nice venue and a good size for 60 to 100 people in the foyer.”

 

The club has an active membership of about 180 and is currently on a full membership drive.
