The National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame Foundation has created a month celebrating the history of rhythm and blues music and its legends for all walks of rhythm and blues music over the past 80 years.

Founded in 2021, Each month of August the National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame Foundation will be promoting and celebrating the music, the artists, and the history. On August 17, 2013 the National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame hosted its inaugural induction ceremony. Starting August 2022 the National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame will host its annual ceremonies in August to honor and celebrate the history of rhythm and blues music. The goal is to get a bill passed nationally through the federal government to recognize August as R&B Music Month. 

We are asking rhythm and blues music fans all over the world to pass the world around and honor the legacy of rhythm and blues music in the month of August.
