Use the online form below OR print and mail in a NOTSBA Membership Application Form with your check to P O Box 160038, Nashville, Tennessee, 37216. You’ll receive an expiration notice 30 days prior to your renewal deadline.


 As part of our website update we have revised the process of paying dues online.  We believe it will simplify the process.


Please note all memberships going forward will be one calendar year, January 1 through December 31.  As we make this transition, those people with any current membership will be considered active until December 31, 2024.

You are no longer required or able to log into the site.  Indeed, our content is free to all.  To  join NOTSBA or renew your membership, choose one of the following options and you will be taken to a secure processor (Stripe).

You may choose One Year Individual Membership – $20 or One Year Family Membership – $30.  Following payment you will receive a confirmation email, and be redirected to a page asking if you would like to be on our mailing list.

 We will also accept checks or cash as before.  A group email reminder will go out in December asking you to consider renewing your membership for the following year.

We genuinely appreciate your support of the NOTSBA mission to preserve the tradition of Old Time Music!
