The TRBX Community
Welcome! We’re so glad you’re thinking about registering for Tobacco Road Blues this year. This event is run by RDU blues and we’re a very open, welcome, and inclusive scene. Some of our favorite things to do in our community are to socialize, use gender neutral language when talking about leading and following, ask for consent, and not make assumptions about preferred dance role based on appearance. We’re also committed to maintaining a safer space and have a comprehensive list of community values. We want to make sure that YOU and everyone around you has an excellent, safe, and comfortable time. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions at [email protected]
Buy a T-Shirt now and you have the option of trading it in for something special
The standard TRBX T-shirt this year will come in forest green and will be screen printed with white ink. We’re also trying something new…one-of-a-kind shirts! The organizers of TRB are diligently scouring the area for shirts in an array of wacky styles and colors to be screen printed with this year’s TRBX logo. The shirts will be on display at TRBX weekend events. Each shirt will be unique and available on a first-come first-serve basis. Here’s the deal…if you purchase the standard green T-shirt now, and you decide you like one of the unique shirts on display better, you are free to trade your (unworn) green shirt for the one you like.
Last year, TRBX featured some awesome blues and fusion showcases during the Saturday evening dance. We’ll be doing it again this year! This is an opportunity to perform something you’ve been working on in a supportive, non-competitive environment, with an appreciative audience. All levels are welcome! Check out last year’s performances!
