Live music in St. Louis
St. Louis became a massively important venue for the development of blues and jazz music in the Midwest, and we see this today with the wide range of live music spots in Downtown St. Louis and the Greater St. Louis area! There are many reasons to enjoy live music during your stay in St. Louis.
Look no further than the National Blues Museum! While learning the history of the blues and how it culminated into the music we listen to today, you can enjoy a concert from a local or nationally acclaimed blues musician later in the day during our Spring and Fall performance seasons in our Legends Room. NBM is incredibly accessible, with multiple parking garages for those driving. We are also close to the Convention Center station, with a short walk, and you’re right at the doors. We are also within walking distance from the Embassy Suites, Drury Inn and Suites, Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch, and Courtyard by Marriot St. Louis.
At NBM concerts, you can bring your food, whether you packed from home or plan on enjoying the many eateries around NBM, including Sugarfire and Hi-Pointe Grill. We have a bar where you can purchase nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages while enjoying the concert, too! Our venue in the Legends Room provides you with an intimate, exhilarating concert experience, whether you’re local or from out of town! Our concerts, including our Jam Session, fall on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, with a special show or two on the calendar at times. You can always follow us on social media or our calendar to see new events!
There are many amazing venues near the Museum too. Check out:
Whether you’re local to St. Louis or are a visitor, we hope you enjoy the blues scene St. Louis has to offer!
