Blue Note Napa - Help save live music in Napa.

We need your help to save the Blue Note Napa! 

The affects of the current coronavirus crisis on the music and entertainment industry and businesses nationwide has been devastating. Countless venues, bars and restaurants across the world have been forced to close their doors and suspend operations. Unfortunately, the suspension of our venue operations, in an effort to support the government’s efforts to slow the spread of the virus, has forced us to make the painful decision to let go the majority of our hard-working team members.   

While we plan to be here when this crisis ends, ready to continue our practice of bringing great performances to downtown Napa, in the meanwhile, we could sure use your  financial assistance to help us weather the storm and insure, jobs for our staff, work for musicians and the survival of daily live music in Napa.

We are a family business and our staff is part of the extended Blue Note Napa family. They have been most vital in bringing unique concert experiences to our audiences on a daily basis. Local artists as well depend on our business to provide them with regular paying “gigs.”  

We opened our doors in October of 2016 in the Historic Napa Valley Opera House, in downtown Napa. We feel like we're just beginning to stretch our feet and get over the trials and challenges of being a fairly new small business.

We are proud to be a source of entertainment, but more importantly a venue that supports our community, whether it be fundraisers for fire-relief or a number of other causes, offering our venue as place of gathering for local non-profits, or providing a source of income to many local artists.

We are a proud member of the Napa community and are humbled by the outpouring of support from our friends in the community and the musicians, both local and from around the world, who entertain on our stage. Unfortunately, to survive, we need not just encouragement but financial support.

What's made us unique is being a small independent venue, a place to see international touring acts as well as local area musicians, up-close and intimate, as if they were in your living room. Unfortunately, under the current circumstances we realize that what makes us unique has forced us to close our doors. We don't know how long this will last, but we want to continue to be a part of the Napa community and be a place for locals and visitors alike to experience live music and community events in our venue for years to come. 

Your donation would mean so much to us! Anything you can give no matter how small (or large) will help us continue to hang on, assist employees, and when it's safe, reopen our doors and welcome back the rest of our team, musicians, friends, and patrons. We understand that making a donation may not be possible for everyone, so even if you can’t send us any money, please spread the word to your friends and family. Every dollar counts!

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
