Nice update from Andy. Good luck in Memphis!!!!
I am very honored and privileged to be competing in this year’s International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.
The semi-finals rounds will be next Thurs., Jan 31, and Fri., Feb. 1. All the acts will be performing at venues on Beale St., but the exact schedule is not revealed until the last minute. So, unfortunately, I don’t yet have any details about where & when I will be performing.
However, you can read all about the “IBC”, as it’s known, on the official website:
And those of you who will be there for the competition should already have my cell phone number – if not, please email me and I’ll send it to you.
Also, lest I forget, I will be doing my usual last Sunday gig at the Blue Martini. I believe there’s a giveaway for a $25 bar tab for the evening—as part of an IBC promotion—so please let me know if you’d like to sign up for that.
