Tasman Bay Blues

Do you like Blues music, live and intimate? And how about a friendly relaxed atmosphere, great company, entertaining club jam nights and bands performing live shows in a unique and rustic venue with style?

Monthly Jam nights, special events including local and international blues artists, workshops and a School Of Blues. All this in our very own “House Of Blues” our beloved BARN, an old rustic building located at the rear of The Honest Lawyer Pub, Monaco, Nelson

“Blues is a tonic for whatever ails you.
I could play the blues and then not be blue any more.”

B. B. King

JAM Nights and Events

We hold monthly Club/Jam nights on the THIRD Thursday of each month from 6.30pm. These are well supported and mostly ‘full house’ nights so be early for the best spot.

On the Jam Nights page you can find all the details to be part of this monthly event.

The Tasman Bay Blues Club actively promotes International and national Blues Artists to play at The Barn, and we have had some great gigs so far, check out our upcoming events on’ the What’s On page.
