Due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the announcement at the time of this writing Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s announcement cancelling any events or gatherings of 250 people for a four-week period, the Cascade Blues Association’s General Membership Meeting has been cancelled for April 1.

The decision was a hard one to make. First communicated between Board Members and then addressed directly with the musicians scheduled to perform, it was determined to cancel.

Though our meetings do not normally bring in 250 people on a normal basis, there are a lot of people to consider when it comes to making this decision. Concern for our members, guests, musicians, sound crew, our own board and the volunteers for both the CBA and The Eagles, many of those who attend may fall within the age and health risk range. We do not want to pose the potential risk of anybody being exposed either knowingly or not.

Though this may be disappointing, it is simply the right and responsible decision to make at this time. Your health and safety are of highest priority to us.

Due to the cancellation, the Journey To Memphis application deadline which was originally to be at the conclusion of the meeting, will be extended for a week to April 7. Entries may be mailed (post-marked no later than April 6) to Journey To Memphis (J2M) c/o Cascade Blues Association, PO Box 6566, Portland, OR 97228. Or they can be handed over directly to any CBA board member no later than April 7.

Also, Waterfront Blues Festival volunteer sign-ups normally happen beginning at the April meeting. We apologize for the inconvenience of those planning on doing so at this meeting, but we will continue the process in both May and June.

Thank you for your understanding.

Greg Johnson,

Cascade Blues Association President.
