Got LIVE Music? Be sure to tell someone who cares!

Blue Monday Monthly is the only blues music and entertainment oriented regional publication based out of Minnesota. Our hallmark is vivid and colorful artist performance photos. Our mission statement and goal is to support and promote live blues, the artists and venues that present this original, all American art form. Our promise to our supporters, readers and advertisers is that we will always be printed and distributed by the first Monday of the month. We have never failed in that promise as we roll thru our seventh year. We further provide the guarantee to our advertisers that if we fail to uphold that standard we have set, their ad is free.

We are distributed at over 250 locations for free pick up in Minnesota; Iowa, Wisconsin, as well as Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska, St. Louis Missouri, Clarksdale Mississippi and Memphis Tennessee. Each month we mail out over 2,500 issues directly to our growing and active paid subscribers list. During the festival season we distribute free to attendees on a one to one basis, swelling readership to over 50,000 per month. This includes, but is not limited to Bayfront Blues Festival, Prairie Dog Blues Festival, Mississippi Valley Blues Festival, Upper Mississippi Shakedown, Famous Dave’s Fest at Peavey Plaza, Hambone Blues Fest, ect.

Our rates are the lowest you will find anywhere. Our added value to our advertisers have made us the biggest bang for your buck you will find anywhere. With our new Blue Monday Monthly on line website getting an average of 38,000 visitors a month, your ad is seen by a HUGE audience even beyond our hard copy distribution. My weekly e-mail blast has over 7,800 subscribers and is growing daily.

Premier advertisers get the added advantage of a customized radio show promoting your event and the artists featured; broadcast thruout So. Minn and on the internet at www.boundarywatersradio.com three days a week. Simply put: we are the cheapest and most effective way to reach and expand your target audience.
