The Alabama Roots Music Association (ARMS), based in Montgomery, Alabama, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting local and national roots music in the Montgomery metro area.

Excerpt from the ARMS website/facebook regarding the purpose of ARMS:

Alabama Roots Music Society or ARMS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that was formed to bring diverse musical genres into the central Alabama area. The current board of directors have been intimately involved in putting on musical events and have developed a network with other interested parties such that ARMS will be able to attract talent and sponsorship. By not limiting the organization to certain types of music, ARMS should be able to appeal to a wide range of people and performers. Knowing that Alabama has a rich musical history, ARMS wants to expose people of the area to live music of current Alabama artists and artists from across the country who have been influenced by those past Alabama icons.

ARMS publishes an online newsletter and sponsors regular and special events in partnership with local venues and organizations:

The ARMSchair concert series occurs monthly, showcasing an artist at Old Alabama Town, a six-block long historical district in downtown Montgomery, Alabama.

The Jazz Jams take place at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, encouraging local jazz artists to participate in an informal jam session.

The Juke # performances happen during ARMS night at the Union Station Train Shed, a local venue in downtown Montgomery.

ARMS also sponsors the River Jam Music Festival which takes place during the summer.

There is an annual tribute concert which happens in the fall. This year on October 24, 2015, the tribute is the music of The Beatles, performed by the Spike Graham Orchestra.

And there are various benefits that ARMS may be involved with, such as a performance to benefit the Capri theatre, a local arts venue.
