Nearly three decades ago, House of Blues was founded with a simple but powerful mantra far ahead of its time in the U.S.:
Unity in Diversity.
The pursuit of peace, love, community, and acceptance has guided the organization’s cultural development daily and continues to gain new meaning and applications over the passing of time
House of Blues is committed to using its venues, voice, and platform to advocate passionately for human expression, racial equality and spiritual harmony.
The House of Blues mission is to celebrate and demonstrate the power of music to bring people together. Its founders drew inspiration from world culture, art and spiritual tenets in order to create a welcoming environment that would bring forth the mantra, Unity in Diversity. The views were and are progressive and philanthropic in nature, as demonstrated by the original mission statement:
To create a profitable, principled, global entertainment company to celebrate the diversity and brotherhood of world cultures. To promote racial and spiritual harmony through love, peace, truth, righteousness and non-violence.
