Blue Star Connection

The Blue Star Connection (BSC) is a program of the non-profit organization Grand County Blues Society.   Not only does Blue Star Connection work with musical therapists and children in various hospitals and clinics, but BSC also hosts fundraisers and benefit concerts in many cities around the USA in order to support its cause.

Our Mission

The Blue Star Connection mission is to provide access and ownership of musical instruments for children and adults with cancer and other serious life challenges. To date we have reached over 1000 kids and have donated musical gear to 80 Children’s Hospitals and Music Therapy programs, as well as several other community programs. Please help us continue this mission.


We have provided guitars, bass guitars, harmonicas, violins, keyboards, flutes and drum kits to more than 1000 kids in the program. We have Blue Stars in Colorado, Texas, California, Washington, Hawaii, Rhode Island, Florida, Illinois, South Dakota, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Nebraska, Nevada, Maryland, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Oklahoma, Oregon, Arizona, Puerto Rico, St. Vincent The Grenadines, and once upon a time, a beautiful girl named Sneha from New Delhi India.

We have lost many of our original Blue Stars – Devon, Sneha, Brandon, Shakiri, Adam, Amanda and Trevor. They are always with us as Blue Stars and their loved ones cherish the instruments that brought some peace and music into their lives.

We have connected with 1000+ Stars and counting!

Since 2005, Blue Star Connection has been gifting children and young adults with their own personal instruments and sending them to live music shows. Contact us here.

Blue Star Hospitals

We have branched out from only providing individual kids with instruments to outfitting the music therapy programs at children’s hospitals across the United States.

We have a loyal group of dedicated volunteers throughout the country that selflessly devote themselves to championing our cause.  This program couldn't operate without them.

Occasionally we receive a donated instrument that can't be placed with a Blue Star. We resell those in our Shop and use the proceeds to purchase a new instrument and get it placed immediately.
