Blues-E-News (aka. BEN) was started by our Executive Editor Wayne Rinehart from what started out as a blog to network with other musicians back in 2008. Wayne aka Big Wayne was looking to network and market his band and other bands in California in an effort to unite the local music scene. From this effort it was discovered that great bands were struggling to find press and recognition outside of Chicago and the Delta Blues scene of the south. Quickly what started off as an effort to market and unite the local music scene turned into a press, PR and album review of great bands deserving the help and being overlooked by main stream media. That blog turned into a newsletter and eventually Big Wayne asked other bloggers to contribute articles and what came next was the forming of a magazine in late 2011 with our first issue January 2012.
