Every Tuesday night, aficionados of The Blues can experience a soulful evening at The Rusty Nail club on South 5th Avenue in Wilmington NC.
That is where the Cape Fear Blues Society presents their weekly blues jam where any musician who walks through the door is invited to perform.
Local acts such as Rose Lucas, Randy McQuay, RC and The Moonpie Band and RootSoul Project can be found performing.

“We have a very, very rich and vibrant music scene here,” says Lan Nichols, the society’s president.
Since its founding in 1987, Cape Fear Blues Society has expanded to include programs like the Blues Jam.
“Blues music has always played a role in the entertainment in the Cape Fear region,” Nichols says.
CFBS’s weekly jams keep blues music vibrant and active not only in the Port City, but in the entire Old North State.
The Cape Fear Blues Society was established in 1987 by a small group of blues supporters in Wilmington, North Carolina.
By 1995 the Cape Fear Blues Society had developed into a larger, all-inclusive organization that welcomes listeners, musicians and Blues enthusiasts from all walks of life.
The Cape Fear Blues Society continues to produce, promote and present the Blues for the benefit of our community. This Blues organization is part of a vibrant network of Blues societies all across North Carolina,
