Many people have contributed to getting SBF going; here are just a few:

Original Planners

Much thanks goes to Woody Szabo and Larry Colen for participating in our first planning session to brainstorm for our kick-off dance.

Much gratitude to Ruth Hoffman for agreeing to teach and DJ at our first dance!


Bob Free had been thinking about extending the Blues community to the South Bay ever since he first encounted Blues dancing back in 2009.

Bob was involved in Scott Gamble's effort to launch South Bay Blues, DJ'g at our first dance, and introducing Scott to Ariel Bowlby as our instructor. South Bay Blues eventually closed down, and Bob began seriously looking for a venue of his own - discovering the Napa Dance Club at a New Year's party with Aline Mucke.

Bob is a dancer who geeks - or was it the other way around???

The Venue

Tom Muller is the proprietor of the Napa Dance Club (our first dance venue), which is a non-profit organization established to support various dance communities and instructors.
