Save Kingston Mines!

Update: Thanks to everyone's donations and support we are reopening! On 15 April we will have our first live shows in over a year. We will be featuring The Joanna Connor Band and Nora Jean Bruso playing live Blues. We hope to see you there! Tickets can be purchased at https://www.ticketweb.com/venue/kingston-mines-chicago-blues-center-chicago-il/18842. Again, thank you to everyone for your support through this unprecedented time, we hope to continue being your source for the best Blues in Chicago for many years to come!

A piece of Chicago history is in danger of disappearing! The oldest blues bar in Chicago has spent the last two years fighting to recover from the loss of its founder. However, now with the quarantine and accompanying mandatory shutdown, a permanent closure is looming. We are still selling t-shirts through our website. So if you would rather make a purchase than donate go to www.kingstonmines.com/shop/. Also, keep an eye on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/kingstonmineschicago/ or visit us @ kingstonmines.com to keep up to date on our plans.

Update: We want to thank all of our donors for their continued support during this trying time. We have especially enjoyed reading your memories of Kingston Mines and how we have touched your life. We also want to thank GoFundMe for their support #SmallBusinessRelief. We are currently working on a plan to reopen and will update this page when we have details. Again thank you from our family to this amazing community of blues lovers.
