Juke#8, Kim Richey, Chicago blues headline ARMS fall line-upBlues fan? Jazz fan? Country fan? Something else? The Alabama Roots Music Society is for you! The mission of the non-profit ARMS organization is to foster roots music through the promotion of ARMS-sponsored concerts and music events, and to assist other organizations and entities with promoting roots music through concerts and other music events.
Through the years, the music has ranged from rockabilly to zydeco, blues to bluegrass, plus gospel, rock and more. Sunday afternoon Jazz Jams provide a low-key gathering for musicians of all levels to learn and jam in a relaxed environment at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.
If you enjoy music in a variety of forms and the people who make it, ARMS welcomes your attendance and participation! The group hosts an annual fundraiser ($10/ticket or $100 for a table, $80/table for ARMS members) known as JUKE which brings in nationally-known acts to a great, weather-friendly event at the Union Station Train Shed. This year, JUKE #8 will feature Electric blues guitarist Bob Margolin on Friday, September 25. In the spring, ARMS partners with the city to produce RiverFest, bringing a variety of musical acts to the Riverfront. For more information about ARMS membership or how to get tickets for JUKE, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Membership is $20 for individuals and $40 family and a form is available by clicking on the link to the group's newsletter.
