On October 20 we took a road trip to Louisville, Kentucky to compete in the Kentuckiana Blues Society Blues Challenge Competition. WE WON!!! This regional competition opens the door for us to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. January 23-26 We will take this show on the road and compete against 200 other winning bands from around the world. 44 bands will make it to the Semi-finals, and 9 will pass on to the finals to perform on the stage of the famed Orpheum Theatre. The ultimate winner will be booked to perform at major festivals around the US, and receive some hefty recording and advertising assistance. No idea what God's got for us there, but we are believeing for a win, working towards it meticulously, and taking everything very seriously. The judging is highly subjective, and you could get knocked out of the running right out the gate because you go up against the ultimate winner. So, prayers please! The judges score your act based on Blues content, Originality, Vocal, Instrumental, and Stage Presence. The scores are weighted heavily towards original blues music. The entire purpose of the competition, sponsored by the Blues Foundation, is in keeping the blues alive. It's certainly working and we're excited to be a part of it. Come join us in Memphis!
