[Harp-L] Is live blues dying out?

I posted this on Facebook today; thought I'd pass it along here:

"On Reverbnation, the top Denver area Country band has 191,000 fans. The top
Metal band has 161,000. Hip Hop = 49,000. Rock = 23,000.

The top Denver area blues band has about 5600 fans. My band has 1119 fans.

Just sayin'..."

And Denver actually has a pretty decent blues scene.  But these numbers are
startling.  Is live blues dying out?
