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 it’s cause.

Our Mission

The Blue Star Connection mission is to provide access and ownership of musical instruments for children and young adults with cancer and other serious life challenges. To date we have reached hundreds of kids and have donated musical gear to almost 60 Children’s Hospital Music Therapy programs, as well as several other community programs. Please help us continue this mission.

Colorado Gives Day 12/4/18

We are participating in Colorado Gives Day and our goal is to raise $50,000 to provide instruments to at least 10 new hospitals and dozens of new Blue Stars. Colorado Gives will donate a percentage of the $1 Million Incentive Fund to Blue Star Connection based on the amounts donated in our campaign.


We have provided guitars, bass guitars, harmonicas, violins, keyboards, flutes and drum kits to more than 800 kids in the program. We have Blue Stars in Colorado, Texas, California, Washington, Hawaii, Rhode Island, Florida, Illinois, South Dakota, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Nevada, Maryland, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Oklahoma, Oregon, Arizona 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 800+ 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.

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.

Blue Star Soilders

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

Would you like to make a donation to Blue Star Connection? We appreciate any and everything that donors can give. We are accepting all monetary donations as well as instruments for children.
