ST. LOUIS — A nonprofit has formed to preserve and promote St. Louis rhythm and blues history.

The group was founded by Reginald Dickson, who owns a business in the Grand Center theater district. He wants the St. Louis Rhythm and Blues Preservation Society to provide a place for R&B performances, education and preservation work.

A board of directors is being formed. Guitarist David Dee and other veteran blues performers are expected to be involved.
